Letizia’s awesome thin crust pizza: perfect comfort food after nearly blowing up. Norwalk, CT

3 Nov

Ah! Fresh and hot outta da oven! :)

So, a funny thing happened the other day.  Well, not funny…more like crazy, freaky, final-destinationish, poop-your-pants scary, like you almost died scary.  We heard about the craziness going on at the gas stations, so we both decided to fill up our cars wherever we could. We stopped at the gas station on the corner of Hope and Woodway.  Near the end of the fill up, there was a series of huge explosions above the gas station.  Electric sparks from the transformer overhead rained down on the gas station and even lit up some oil that was on the ground.  We freaked out and didn’t know what to do. Fire trucks started to show up. I was done getting gas, but Kristien wasn’t. Kristien was yelling to me, telling me to just drive off and meet her at CVS up the street.  But I had a movie image in my head:  a man, speeding off in a car with his dog, never to see his wife again so I waited until she was done at the pump. Kristien threw cash at the gas attendant and sped off behind me squealing her tires in the process.  Even as we write this, we’re still freaked out and think how close we were to something potentially horrific.  Luckily nothing happened and nobody got hurt. :)

Needless to say, we didn’t stick around Springdale to see if we’d get the power back.  We headed to Kristien’s office to set up camp there for the night.  We dropped off our supplies then headed to the first restaurant that we had in mind:  Letizia’s.  If you want a nice thin crust pie, this is definitely the spot to check out on Main Ave. in Norwalk.  Kristien put the order in:  sausage, hot pepper, and onions…an OmNomCT favorite combo.  We got a large antipasto, too, then headed out to get some wine. I mean, look…you need wine after that.

Elmer’s was open so we hightailed it and just as we were halfway there the lights shut out, one by one, in the store.  We pleaded, and the nice owner let us in…people can be so nice and caring in times like these, it’s important to look at that side of things.  So, we got our wine, picked up the pizza, then plopped down in front of the TV at Kristien’s office.  Ahhhhh, electricity.

The pizza has a nice thin crust (if you dig that style), to start off.  There’s just the right amount of sauce, too.  Speaking of the sauce, it’s a bit zesty and a bit sweet – really tasty.  The sausage was great, having a nice fennel taste, and the peppers were nice and spicy too.  We devoured that pie like we hadn’t eaten in days. Overall, very delicious and probably one of the best pizzas in Fairfield County.

The antipasto was good, though more meaty than what we’re used to. They definitely don’t skimp on the toppings.  There was salami, pastrami, provolone, broccoli, pepper, and lettuce served with a golden Italian dressing.  Everything was fresh and tasted great, but we missed those pepperoncini that we typically get in our antipasto.  To us, it never seems complete without those beautiful spicy peppers.

So, all in all, we had a really great meal after our near death experience.  Letizia’s is great for takeout, but it also a great place to checkout for sit down food.  Did you know that Letizia’s is BYOB?  Did you know that Letizia’s WON’T charge you for BYOB?  Oh yeah, Bring Your Own Badness! We highly recommend their pie!

We hope that everybody is safe and sound and that you’re doing okay.  Take care everybody.
