Cosmo's Pizza>Lawenceville, Ga.

Anyone tried it? I did, and was impressed and entertained. The owners are off-the-boat Italians who make their dough and sauce daily. The

Lots of noise, with the owner Cosmo spatting with his wife of a gazillion years, in true Italian fashion. Loads of hand signing! I felt I was back in Pittsburgh with my grandparents.

The pies are huge. Thin crust, and I do mean thin! Not a lot of sauce, and personally I like a lot, but was thinking authentic Italian pizza may actually be that way. I got mushrooms, onions, and peppers. The onions were interesting. They seemed to be pre-cooked, almost grilled, if you will, and were spicey to the taste. The mushrooms seemed cooked as well. I couldn't tell if it was the same as the onions, or (forbid!) they were using cooked, canned mushrooms. One would think NOT!

The place is a dump, as it should be, though it sits on a quaint stretch of historic square downtown. Good pizza, lively joint, 100% real Italians...

    Went to Cosmos last night & had a really good pizza. Had sausage, black olives & chopped garlic. The pie was thin as Ulver said, not a lot of sauce & large. I also like a lot of sauce but this was nice. Everything just comes together. I will be returning.
    There was a pizza joint in Winder 5 or 6 years ago with the same name (Cosmos Little Italy).After talking with the owner I found that it had been opened & run by a different part of the family. It is no longer in operation because of reasons beyond control but was every bit as good or better than the new Cosmos in Lawrenceville.
