Pizza Lady in Pawcatuck

Can anyone tell me what is a traditional pizza from the Pizza lady in Pawcatick CT is like?

It lists spicy or sweet and also fish. But there is no explanation on what they mean by traditional versus their regular pizza.

Growing up we had a italian neighbor make us pizza that was a thick crust with a little tomatoe sauce on it. It was so good. It was similar to RI pizza strips. I'm wondering if the PIZZA Lady is similar. It is right by the RI border.

  1. Yes, this traditional is considered "sheet" pizza -- cut into squares and doesn't have the melted cheese on top. The sweet is my favorite, it's a tomato sauce with slightly sweet flavor. The fish has small pieces of salted fish, but it's a little too "fishy" for me.

        Coastalgypsy - Thanks for the quick reply. I may have to try it one of these days when I'm in the area. Sometimes the simple tastes are a nice change of pace.

        Joltingjoey -is that Heinz or Hunts ketchup? I'm a Heinz girl. I'm thinking it might be something a bit more than that to have survived so long on the menu. But to each his own.

          You got it -- it's simple and nostalgic, and there's something to be said for that. Plus, without all the heavy cheese on top, you can have a bunch of squares and not feel like you need a siesta.

          Definitely try to grab some when you're in the area!

            "Nostalgic" must be the only way they work. Living in RI but not having been born and raised here, I can say objectively that RI-style "pizza strips" are inedible.

              To each his own... my best friend drinks Miller Lite, but we're still friends. If we all liked the same things, the world would be boring! Cheers!
