McGillin’s Olde Ale House

Today we went to McGillin’s. The pizza here is thin and the cheese is stringy. I don’t think it’s made in a brick oven.  There is just the right amount of tomato sauce.  They have other types of pizza besides plain.  I also had some hot wings, which were very hot.

Editors note:  While McGillin’s is not a pizza place as such, we stopped here on a whim instead of going to Chinatown for lunch on Saturday.  Zayda, who’s never happy anywhere, and usually eats like a bird, managed to finish a giant meatball sandwich and a slice of pizza.  It’s very kid friendly during the day.

4.0 slices
I give this place 4 stars.

Stella Rossa

Stella Rossa Ristorante

Today we went to Stella Rosa.   They gave us crayons to draw while we waited for our pizza.  They have a kids menu and we ordered a pizza from there.  I thought it would be small, but it was the same size as my Dad’s.  The sauce was tomatoey and the cheese was stringy. There’s a lot of crust.   Dad says he thought his pizza was undercooked, but Carl and I thought it was OK.

Carl adds that the pizza takes 90 seconds to cook.

Blackbird Pizzeria

Blackbird Pizzeria

Philadelphia,  PA 19147

Today we went to Blackbird Pizzeria.  I ordered the Nacho Pizza and instead of the cheese being white, it is orange.  (Editors note:  The regular cheese is white, it’s just because this was nacho style cheese).  The toppings are jalapeno peppers, avocado and caramelized onions.  The cheese is small and stuck together.  You can order it by the slice.  It’s across the street from Starr Gardens playground so we can play before and after eating.

Carl adds:  The dough is very skinny.  The crust is very chewy and thick.  The pepperoni is hot.
