Lancellotta's Pizza in Lawrenceville

Large Pepperoni, our favorite!

Lancellotta's Pizza Ristorante
580 Lawrence Sq. Blvd., South
Lawrenceville, NJ
(You can find a menu here)

So basically, Lancellotta's Pizza is about the greatest thing that ever happened to my complicated life as a single mother, student, pastor, cat-lady. The pizza is delicious and not too expensive. It's always ready within 10 minutes, and they have all the Italian pasta stuff too if anyone in the family is in the mood for something else.

The owner is a local guy, Rob Lancellotta, and he and his staff are friendly and efficient. During our winter snow storms they stayed open, even the day after we got 30 inches or so.

Their pizza crust is homemade and tasty--crispy around the edges and just the right thickness. The sauce is zesty, but not too spicy. Just the right amount of cheese and generous with the toppings. Best of all, there aren't any green herbs sprinkled on top (some of the local shops do that here), so my children will actually eat this wonderful pizza.

There are a few tables to eat inside and a couple outside for nice days. But it's also just as easy to pick up a pie and head over to Mercer County Park or take it back to eat in.

Anyway, I don't normally do restaurant reviews on my blog, but this is the best pizza we've found, and I'm glad it's a local guy with a little shop around the corner. You should go eat there.
