Recently, my Saturday Spotlight has shined on some of the wonderful bloggers in the lingerie community, but today, I want to focus locally. Pizza is one of my favorite foods because the possibilities for customizing it to individual tastes are endless; not to mention, anything relying heavily on carbs and cheese works for me. But, when it comes to who makes the best pizza, I have only one answer: the locally owned and operated Mimi’s Pizza! So named for the childhood moniker of proprietor Jimmy Xionis, Mimi’s Pizza specializes in crafting delicious pizzas, pastas, calzones, subs, and salads all of which feature a hearty dose of traditionalism mixed with Jimmy’s own flair for cooking. All of the ingredients are fresh, including the made-from-scratch sauces (try the white one!) and dough, and I love how the menu showcases some perennial favorites like Meat Lovers alongside specialty concoctions like my personal favorite, the Greek Pizza.
After tantalizing my palette with the pizza, I branched out to the calzones, and I am only mildly ashamed to admit that I can (and have) eat one of them in a single sitting. Where’s that emoticon with the big eyes when you need him? Eventually, I decided to taste something healthier and ordered one of the subs: the Buffalo Chicken! Out of all the Buffalo Chicken sandwiches and subs I have eaten in all the pizza/sub places in all the worlds (too much?), Mimi’s was the best. Of course, I still had to add some hot sauce, but not everyone appreciates my level of spicy.
But, the final test comes down to . . . *drumroll* . . . the salad! Everyone knows that pizza places always mess up the salad, but not Mimi’s! The salad was packed with crisp lettuce and topped with moist, juicy chicken (plus all the toppings I requested), and it was heavenly. Not to mention, I didn’t feel horrible about gorging on it like I do the calzones and pizza.
If you’re in the area, they deliver, offer carry-out, and have a nice dine-in section too, so get yourself some Mimi’s today! Oh, don’t forget to like their Facebook page!
P.S. This isn’t a sponsored post. I just really love their food!
