Pizza Delicious

You may or may not have noticed that I spend A LOT of time in New Orleans. It's a great city, though the food options are predominately of one genre. I LOVE Cajun food, but sometimes you just want a slice of pizza. Well I was tipped off to Pizza Delicious, and figured it was worth a shot. Was it ever.

This place is located in the Bywater, and is run like a well-oiled machine.

I was feeling a bit heavy, largely due to the fact that most of my meals were fried or smothered (or both) for the past few days, so I started with a house salad.

All of the veggies were fresh, and the shaved prov was fantastic.

Next I decided it was time to try some of their signature rolls.

Surprisingly, the cauliflower roll was my absolute favorite. This was a perfectly spiced, well seasoned dough ball packed with cauliflower. Fantastic. On a return trip, they were sold out, which was disastrous for my morale.

The beautiful layering of meat in the pepperoni roll was not to be missed either. Just look at it.

This was one of the best pepperoni rolls I have ever eaten.

The spinach roll was also good, but it was hard to compete with the previous duo.

The Margherita pizza is only available in pie form (compared to slices for the rest), but it is certainly worth it. This was my favorite pie. The crust was even thinner than the rest (likely why it is whole pie only) and the flavorful sauce and creamy cheese did the trick. The crust was literally cracker thin. It was amazing.

Never one to back down from a tasting, I also tried the cheese, pepperoni, and two specialty slices.

The cheese and pepperoni were both good. Thin crust, nice amount of cheese, and a delicious sauce. I would definitely be happy with these for a "grab and go" situation.

Both of the special slices had roasted garlic, one was a white sauce, one a red with sopressata. Both were very tasty, but given one choice, I would rather eat an entire Margharita by myself.

It was a pleasure to find such an east coast-worthy pizza place smack dab in the middle of New Orleans. I will definitely be back, especially when I hit the gumbo wall and need something different to change it up.
