Pizza Bella, Ashley/Hanover PA Thu, 10/21/10 8:13 PM (permalink)
At the request of dear daughter, who is home from college on fall break, we tried a new pizza spot tonight, Pizza Bella on Hazle St in Hanover Township (PA), right on the Ashley border. (For those keeping track, that's in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area). If you're from the area and haven't tried Pizza Bella, it is in the Norm's/Grotto family of styles, but not really close to Grotto style. More like inbetween Norm's and NYC style.
You know, it was not bad. They make some attempts at being distinctive. The crust is a bit sweet, and a bit bready, but still has some chew to it; the sauce, too, is a bit sweet/tomatoey rather than savory/herb. Toppings were plentiful, and the sausage was full anise flavored. Mushrooms were canned unfortunately.
We also ordered a Parma-boli, a meatball parmesan stromboli. Pretty decent. Think, BIG meatball sub/haogie/grinder, but baked in folded pizza dough.
Would it be my own go-to? Nope. But if someone else brought it around, I'd eat it.
