Sally's Apizza: Some things never change. Be thankful!

The whole family went back to Sally's Apizza on Wooster Street last night. We're glad we did!

We got there early, so we would be able to make it for the first seating. We patiently waited for the Sally's lights to be turned on. A few minutes later the doors opened. Unfortunately, we did not get our pizza order in right away, so we had a bit of a wait. This is the price you pay for good pizza.

One couple who were seated just ahead of us, got tired of waiting, and ended up walking out. Oh, well.

We ordered a medium anchovy, a large bacon and a medium potato pizza. (The potato pizza is not on the menu, so you have to ask).

Our pizzas were fantastic. The crust was slightly burnt, just the way I like it. The coal fired oven imparts a great taste to the dough. The crust is ultra thin and very tasty. The toppings were perfect.

I had a chance to chat with Flo Consiglio, owner of Sally's, for a couple of minutes. I asked her if there would be anything new at Sally's.

She assured me, everything would remain the same. I filmed our conversation, and I will let you know as soon as it is ready. (Make sure you are signed up for Pizza News, for the latest pizza scoops.)

She was hesitant to talk on camera, at first, but with some encouagement from daughter Ruth, she allowed me to film our interview.

Sally's Apizza is like no other pizzeria on the planet. Family run, family operated. To Flo Consiglio and Sally's Apizza, family matters.

Some things, never change and in the case of Sally's Apizza, I hope they never do.

Saw Flo at Sally's last night. She remembbers Albert fondly and still was embarrassed about the video interview. The Pizza was fabulous as always. (Exactly as Albert describes it). If you took Pepe's White Clam pie and served it at Sally's, you'd have the best place in the Universe!
