"Their pizza is just like in NYC!" somebody told me. I couldn't wait to try it and finally did tonight. The person who had made this claim must have been talking about some other NYC in a galaxy far, far away because whatever they make at this pizza joint is about as similar to NYC pizza as a Chalupa is a typical Slovenian dish.
Sure, staff was friendly and all, but the pizza (to go) we received wasn't too clear on the delineation between the pizza dough and the cardboard box. Toppings were okay, though, and the sauce wasn't offensive - you all know those sauces that are overly heavy on oregano and sugar...
As such, St. Angelo fits right in with the rest of the horrible pizza that can be had in the area. Perhaps they simply cater way too much to an American palate as it existed 30 years ago. The South has always been slow in moving forward and the cuisine that can be found here (and which gets good ratings - like Carrabba's and Olive Garden) is testament to the food desert this whole region still is.
While there are a few desperately needed exceptions in and around Peachtree City, for the most part, any sophisticated or even mildly interesting food is almost impossible to find. As is good pizza....
Forget going here if you have any kind of even slightly higher standards. If you MUST have pizza, get in the car and drive to Antico in Atlanta or perhaps Fritti in Inman Park. Alas, if your current standard is Little Caesars, Dominos, or Jet's - then this is probably a big step up.
If you are, however, used to eating actual pizza, then this will strongly remind you of frozen pizza from the grocery store - and that includes the little indentations on the underside of the pizza!
I understand that in this part of the world, having high standards is frowned upon and just a manifestation of elitism. If this is how you feel about my review, relax - chances are that you will LOVE the pizza at St. Angelo. Plus, once you have determined how great it is, you can also reaffirm yourself with the knowledge that you were right about the author of this review all along. So, enjoy - and rest assured that the likes of me won't interrupt your dinner with our raised noses.
