Got a tip from someone the other day, that someone who used to work at Anthony’s had opened his own place up in Lighthouse Point, named Sicilian Oven. So naturally Mikey and I, made the journey to go and try it. The Sicilian Oven is located on 2486 N Federal Hwy 954.785.4155. When we located the place, I remember it being a DiSalvos or something like that. It was a place we tried many many years ago and didn’t really care for, so when we saw it no longer in business it came as no surprise.
The Sicilian Oven smelled great when we walked in, and we were seated within a view of the ovens that they use. Watching a fully flamed oven is kind of beautiful, especially when they throw some oil in there to heat it up! We ordered a small regular pie to split, and anxiously awaited for the first bite.
When the pizza arrived, it looked fantastic. We both took and slice, and upon biting in, we both looked at each other and gave the eyes of bliss to one another. This pizza was great. The crust was tasty and crisp, the cheese tasted awesome, and the olive oil they used on top of the pie after removing it from the oven, gave this slice such a rich taste. Ideally, I would take some of the chunks out of the sauce guys. The sauce was a little too heavy for my liking, but tasted decent. So it wasn’t nearly enough of a negative to take any points away from the overall experience. This is a place we will definitely try again if we are in the area, and we recommend to anyone who thinks Anthony’s Coal Pizza is good, to try this place before making that statement. The Sicilian Oven is far better then Anthony’s.
The Sicilian Oven gets 7 out of 8 slices.
