Cebula's Bar & Lounge

295 Main Street
Dupont, PA 18641
(570) 655-8809

NEPA is home to the "Pizza Capital of the World" in Old Forge, but to be honest, I didn't really like the look of most of the options there. On a drive up 81, I decided Dupont was the stop for me. They have a gem called Cebula's, which boasts Polish potato crust pizza. When I pulled up, I knew it was the place for me.

A few locals were inside drinking and eating "reheats" which are slices that have been pre-made, and reheated, obviously. There were not a whole host of options, which made sense. Some kind of proprietary hot pepper blend, and the standard garlic powder and oregano. Worked for me.

The slices that came out were surprisingly good. A sort of hybrid of frozen Sicilian and pizzaz, the crust was uniquely soft and airy on top, but still nicely browned on the bottom.

The sauce was crushed tomato and onion, nothing too crazy, but nice and rich.

Now when I say "slices" I'm utilizing my cultural finesse; in the great northeast, they're called "cuts" and a whole pizza pie isn't a pie at all – it's a "tray" – and that's that. Consider yourself learned and don't ask questions. My half-tray boasted 8 large cuts and so I definitely took some to go. I'll admit, a cut of reheats that you reheat again is where it's at.

The cheese, however, was perhaps even stranger than the potato dough. It was a blend of some sort, but definitely had a heavy American cheese presence. I love the creamy texture of American on pizza (once in a while) and it complemented the spongy soft texture of the crust (thanks, potato flour).

At $2.25 a cut, it was cheap for our area, but apparently expensive for NEPA. Either way, I loved the atmosphere, the pizza, and the place. Will definitely stop back when I am on my way up north.

So are all the slices "Reheats"? or can you get a Tray with Cuts? Looks intriguing!

That's a shame you didn't go to Old Forge. That's where the real pizza action is and lots of old-timey atmosphere.

@Mod Betty- they were "reheats", but they also had trays! Still getting used to this lingo!

@NEPA Native- Old Forge places were all closing at the hour I was getting there! Next time.

Looks good, and looks like an awesome place. I've tried most of the NEPA cold pizza (senape's etc) but still haven't made it to Old Forge. One place I'm dying to try is Ferri Pizza in Moscow, PA. Half pizzeria half coal museum, and they do a pierogi / potato pizza during lent only.
