T. Anthony copying Santarpio's?

I got my usual once-a-month Sunday night delivery yesterday - T. Anthony's pepperoni & mushroom pizza, extra thin - and was amazed to find that they'd put the toppings under the cheese, not on top!

The only place I've ever heard of doing this is Santarpio's. Can't say I like it, I prefer the pepperoni to get a little crisp. Has anyone else encountered this? Could it possibly have anything to do with the fact that, for the first time, I ordered it not only extra thin, but well done too? Maybe the chef thought the toppings would burn if he left it in the oven longer?

  1. I've never gotten my toppings underneath at T. Anthony's that I can recall...anyhow, the pizza is still entirely different, and maybe better, than Santarps.

    1. That's bizarre. Did they fulfill your thin and crispy requests? I've been wanting to order a well-done pizza at T. Anthony for a while, to see what happens... but I never got around to trying it.

        They did make it extra thin, I've been getting that for a while. As for well done - the crust at the edge was a bit darker brown than usual, but the pie as a whole was not exceptionally crisp. That plus the cheese on top (plus the fact that it arrived practically cold, I had to put each slice in the toaster oven for a few minutes before eating it) made me wonder if I'd just gone too far in my special requests.
