Didn’t have much time the other day to be picky about where lunch should be eaten, since the people I was with only had an hour. We happened to be off 10th Street in Deerfield Beach and as we drove towards the west we pulled into a shopping plaza that had a Sal’s Pizza in it. Sal’s is a local chain around this portion of South Florida, for those of you who do not know. Seems like every Sal’s Pizza claims they are different than the others, at least that is what the people I was eating with said the lady who drops off the menus to their office always says.
We entered Sal’s Pizza in Deerfield Beach and it looked like all the others, so I am not sure how she could claim they are different, but whatever. I wasn’t here for the ambiance, I was here for the pizza. Since, none of us wanted a whole pie, we took advantage of some of the lunch specials Sal’s has. One of them has a slice that comes with it, so it was a perfect chance for me to try a piece of their pizza out.
When the slice arrived I was kind of looking for the other half of it. The slice was puny, not even the size of some frozen pizza slices that you cut yourself at home. The bottom of the slice was crispy, and that was a good sign though. Sal’s cooked this minuscule slice of pizza perfectly which was also a plus. In my opinion the chunky sauce near the edges made this slice less aesthetically appealing, and considering the sauce was bland to start off with, it didn’t really make the taste too appealing either. The cheese happened to taste good, so I cannot complain about that.
Sal’s, I think you should add some spice, or seasoning to your sauce and make it taste a little better. Also, in my opinion it would be helpful to get a pizza maker who understands geometry when slicing a pie so that patrons don’t get tiny slices like I did and feel they got less than what they paid for.
Sal’s Pizza in Deerfield Beach gets 4 out of 8 slices.
