Every now and then I become a little friendly with a pizza owner, especially if they are from a part of Long Island near where I come from. When Tom took over Mizner Pizza and changed the name to Spadini’s Pizza, he brought a taste of Long Island with him. Here was our previous review –> Spadini’s Pizza Review. After going in there several times to enjoy the slices, I finally introduced myself, which turned out not to be necessary since his girlfriend at the time was a pretty good PR girl and had already recognized me.
Tom and I ended up having a lot of pizza love in common. We both frequent the same places when we go back home, and it seemed the places I didn’t care for, he shared the same view of negativity. On one of my visits to Spadini’s Pizza we got to talking about some of our favorite pizza in Brooklyn, and of course L&B Spumoni Gardens found its way into the conversation. I asked him why he thought that nobody down here could really make an upside down Sicilian pie like they did, and he actually didn’t know the answer. So on that day, we came up with a plan and made an upside down pie the way I wanted it. Granted, there is no way we could ever compare to the amazing sauce at L&B Spumoni Gardens, or the magnificent crust, but we were willing to give it an honest Floridian try.
