It is easy for anyone to misjudge how amazing an upside down pizza tastes right out of the oven. Normally, one would have to go to Brooklyn to enjoy a fresh, hot out of the oven, upside down Sicilian slice. This is no longer the case.
Nino’s of Boca Raton located on 7120 Beracasa Way, Boca Raton, FL – (561) 392-9075 is testing out this upside down Sicilian style pies (also known as Red Pies) for anyone who walks in and asks for one of these special pies, saying they are friends of Lapp or WorstPizza.com. These pies cost a couple of dollars more then the regular Sicilian pies there (which are still very well priced for the quality and taste).
This is different then the other upside down pies you might have had with me, if we have had the opportunity to meet and eat there together. The other kind that I previously had at Nino’s was an upside down grandma style pizza. This is regular, thick Sicilian style crust that has sliced mozzarella cheese melted into the dough, on top of a tasty coating of extra virgin olive oil. On top of the cheese, can be found a layer of sweet sauce that meets the roof of your mouth, so smooth, and hot, that it is unlike any pizza you have previously encountered.
Many might argue that this pizza was originated in Detroit, but that is a fight that they will have to battle out with the New Yorkers. Places like Spumoni Gardens, Rosas’s and numerous others have been serving this style pizza for decades. Others refer to this as cheesebread with sauce on top (Mr. Waffle), but once you taste it, I think you will find it hard to classify as anything but delicions.
Nino’s will not be offering this pie for long. They will test it out on my readers and ask for honest reactions. If you all think it is worthy of the menu, then they will include it. This is crowdsourcing for Pizza. And what a great pizza to try it out on. Also, the owner, Marco, would love to hear what you think he should call this pie after you eat it.
Nino’s gets 7 out of 8 slices for this remarkable pizza.
