Pizza in Perth Amboy
- Paul Sky
Does anyone remember how good the pizza was at the little, family owned place that used to be across the street from the Majestic Theatre on Madison Ave? Last time I was around there, it was still there, but the owners who made the most amazing pizza I ever tasted have been gone since the mid-80's. They probably moved back to Italy or just retired. Their pizza had a thin crust with a wonderful, oregano flavor that I've never tasted again elsewhere. If anyone can recall it, is there another place you would recommend tha would be similar?
No one has replied to this post in more than 7 years. Well, I remember Capri Pizza, and I used to take the bus from Menlo Park Terrace to spend the exorbitant price of 35 cents a slice to feed there when I was a kid. Then we'd cross the street and catch a movie at the Majestic, and then go up a block a shoot straight pool for 75 cents hour at Mizerak's (yeah, that Mizerak, when Steve Mizerak, the owner's son, was a fat kid in highwater pants with white socks.) The pizza at Capri was unlike any other, just as Paul Sky noted 7 years ago...I'll never forget it, nothing I've had in the ensuing 50 years has ever come close, and when I do taste something that approximates it, all the old neurons fire off, but...close is close, but no cigar. You'd walk in the door - open the door and the fragrance of baking dough, tomatoes,cheese, and garlic would almost blow you back into the street - and buy right at the counter to your left...nothing like it, before or since.
