OT -- High Praise for Buffalo Pizza

Recommended Posts

We got Pizza hut and a Boston Pizza in the area, been there once never again.

If I need a pizza Dr Oetker will have to do.   Preferably with pineapple.   😁

I have wanted a Dr Oetker pineapple pizza for a long time.  They're legendary.  I have no idea whether they're any good, but they are legendary.

So, my 14 yr old daughter went up to WNY for a baby shower and had dinner one night at Santoras. Had a fresh tomato and mozzarella pizza. Said it was the best she ever had. 

Now I’m curious if it possible to recreate the style at home.

Huh.  Santora's doesn't even make most people's usual list.  Then again, if she's used to Balmer-area or Capital-area pizza, just about anything is going to shine!

When we visit we do not go out. 

We have a nice Italian restaurant a mile away where we get a nice margarita pizza.

For adults, true.

But have known a lot of teens through the years that considered Santora's their favorite pizzeria.  Something, something, refined palate.

Why hasn’t our frozen custard travelled?

Actually, my good friend is planning on opening up an Abbott's Custard down here in New Orleans. Abbott's is now franchising and has moved into MA, FL, NC, SC, etc.

 

BTW - I used to go to Marvino's Pizza when I was a kid. That's long gone from what I'm told. 😕

My wife’s favorite pizza from home is still Santora’s.  It’s gotta be sentiment.

Marvino’s at the plaza at Sheridan & Hopkins?  Near the Pop Shoppe and Schony’s?  Me too!

Yeah, Sheridan & Hopkins. I used to ride my bike there, buy slices, and play video games back in the 80's!

Santora's and Marvino's were childhood staples.  Friday pizza night usually was from Santora's.

Still, not usually on the top ten lists.

I tip my hat to the Santoras people for turning their Millersport store into a credible pub/grill type operation (not sure how the others work). When the parents of a youth sports team wanna go get a sheet and some crafty beers, Santoras fits the bill.

Saw this posted today in a sub-reddit about Buffalo -- it's a pie from Picasso's (which I've never been to but this looks great):

Looks like a pie they used to serve at the old Pizza Junction in NT.

Picasso’s is a Santoras spin off.  Family, I’m pretty sure.  Very similar.

That pic makes me miss Buffalo pizza.

I’m loyal to Bocce’s. Always have. I like it way better than LaNova and other “popular” local spots.

I am a Bocce guy also.  Still miss the pepperoni and the odd shaped slices.  

Here in the Atl we actually get Buffalo style pizza.  The Galla family, which owned Godfather’s back in the day, opened Galla pizza and wings here and make a very solid pizza with the “cup” pepperoni with the grease floating in it.  

I took my dad there the other day we shared pizza and medium wings and he just loved it.

Casa was my jam when they were on Elmwood, but now they're only downtown and I don't get them that often. Now we do Mister Pizza, which is pretty solid.

My favourite , I eat it the most.    Their vegetable pizza is great to.

I feel so fortunate that a Kenmore native opened Buffalo Bros. not far from me here in Fort Worth.
