After the Dolphin game yesterday we decided to get off the Turnpike and head to Lorenzo’s Pizza on Coconut Creek Parkway. Lorenzo’s, for those of us from Long Island, used to be located at the Busy Bee flea market in Massapequa.
I haven’t been to Lorenzo’s Pizza for a couple of years. When I first discovered that they moved down to Florida I was thrilled since I had eaten at their place in Long Island for years. One thing I remember truly enjoying there was their grandma pizza, which is really just a thin upside down pizza. Naturally we ordered a pie of this grandma style pizza and some garlic knots. Lorenzo, I am not happy that you have them listed as garlic rolls on the menu? Why oh why did you have to confirm to the Florida way of saying things!
When the pizza came out, I was a little disappointed how small the pie was. There were 4 of us, and it was barely enough to feed us all. Other then the size, the pizza was really good. The sauce was super sweet, and wasn’t piled on grossly. The cheese was melted into the dough and the Parmesan cheese on top was a nice addition. The crust was totally perfect, and I cannot find fault in it at all. The only thing I could find a fault in, were the other old patrons complaining about everything. I even heard one lady behind me saying to the waitress, that there are only 3 tomatoes in her salad, and she usually gets 4.
Lorenzo’s, I will give your pizza 6 out of 8 slices, and I will be back to try your other pizzas shortly! Keep up the good work.
