Well I had the official pizza of the Florida Panthers the other day while watching the Panthers lose to the Jets the other day at The BB&T center the other day. At least I think it is still called The BB&T Center still, since it seems to change every few months to something else. Apparently the name of the arena is not the only thing that changes regularly. The pizza also changed recently, from Papa John’s (I think) to Giovanni’s Pizza, and now to Delvecchio’s Pizza.
Delvecchio’s Pizza has a few other locations throughout South Florida, including Weston, and Davie. I have been to their Weston location, but wasn’t overly impressed by the pizza I ate there. Not that there was anything specifically wrong with it, it was just that there are many other places that I felt served better pies. One thing I knew, is that I disliked Giovanni’s Pizza and Papa John’s, so I was quite confident that this Delvecchio’s Pizza would taste better.
I ordered a plain pie, which was immediately delivered to me by the cashier. I grabbed a few napkins and my soda, and went back into Club Red to eat my pizza. I know, you are wondering why I would go into the general population to eat, when Club Red serves free food, and plenty of it. The problem was I saw pizza while walking by the food court area, and I just had to try it out to see if it was any good.
Delvecchio’s Pizza, wasn’t that bad in this arena setting. This individual plain pie possessed a nice taste, and was cooked properly. The cheese tasted much better than that of its predecessors that once had the amazing title of being the Official Pizza of The Florida Panthers. The sauce was tasty and smooth and didn’t have much along the lines of chunks. The crust wasn’t very tasty, and was quite bready if anything.
Not that you are given a huge variety of choices at Florida Panthers games when it comes to pizza, but I guess if you are forced to eat what they have in some monopolistic manner, this Delvecchio’s Pizza wasn’t half bad.
On their website Delvecchio’s makes a statement that they were voted the best pizza in South Florida, but do not give any links or reference, so I am not certain this is actually verified.
Delvecchio’s Pizza in the BB&T Center gets 4 out of 8 slices.
