Pauline’s is for those who don’t want their crust blackened or their pizzas topped with things like arugula, hen of the woods mushrooms, nettles, etc. It’s classic and simple and sometimes, that’s all you want. The pesto pizza (with no red sauce) is pretty great, but if you’re with a group of carnivorous friends, the Italian combo is a good option. Of course, you could also just get both.
