Time Square Pizza Fort Lauderdale, Fl

After running around Fort Lauderdale doing various odds and ends, I found myself in the East Oakland Park area. I was told in the past that there was a great pizza place in this area called Times Square Pizza and I figured now would be the time to check it out. Times Square is a small New York style pizza parlor (hence the name). There are 5 or 6 tables inside with 2 tables just outside, the decor is a mixture of NY landmarks and Miami fan favor. It takes me back to my days of growing up in NY. The pizza kitchen work area is about the size of my Guest Bathroom but, these guys prove that you don't need a lot of work space to make a great quality pizza pie. I ordered two slices, 1 meatball, 1 mushroom and asked for them "well done". Well done meaning not burnt but crispy so that the pizza crunches when you bite or cut into it. My biggest pet peeve when it comes to a good slice is the crispiness of the slice. Nobody in South Florida, until now know what "well done means".

If I pick up a slice, fold the crust to hold it and the front end of the slice drops out it makes my hair stand. This slice was so hot that when I was cutting into it, the plastic fork started to melt. I went through 1 knife and 2 plastic forks to eat 2 slices, that is a nice hot slice of pizza. Now keep in mind each slice had 1 topping, when I picked it up and folded the crust there was barely any bend to the tip of that slice. A good sign from the start.

The slice was excellent. The sauce was a great combination. A little sweet and a little spicy. The tomatoes were not clumpy and there was an even amount of sauce and mozzarella. The only thing I didn't like about the slice was they chop up the meatballs in to small pieces, I like them sliced into thin circles and placed on the pizza like pepperoni. A small set back to a great slice of pizza. With the way that the economy is right now for the more than fair price of $5.25 for 2 Slices and 1 can of soda, I proudly rate this slice 6 out of 8 slices. Kudos to you Times Square Pizza. Keep kneading the dough!

    Unsanitary Conditions… Good pizza, however, they went from the cash register and handling cash to making my salad and sub. I watched the food server do this several times…. I just canceled my order and left. They really need to work on their safe food handling skills.

    Just don't order a salad. The heat of the pizza oven will kill any germs from the guy touching the cash register. Anyway, it will build up your immune system.

    I've been ordering pizza from this place for at least fifteen years. It's always great, and I've never got sick Paul.

    Pizza in New York is the best! All the other states Pizza can’t compare to New York style of making Pizza.  Chicago, IL is the only state that come close.  The reason why is when you eat Pizza the mozzarella cheese is suppose to pull from your mouth after take a bit. That is letting you know that you know that you are eating real mozzarella and not a fake substitute!  In other states especially Florida some put fake substitute cheese or they use provolone making you think you are eating the real thing.  Majority of the state I have visit do not make it correctly.  That crust should be well done, sauce should be a little sweet but a little tangy and real mozzarella should pull from your mouth after taken a bite.  This is the way they make it in Italy too especially Naples, and there you know you’re getting the real thing!
