South Town Pie used to serve New York-style pizza that we would go out of our way for. While the pizza here isn't consistently great anymore, it's still a decent place if you need a takeout slice in South Park or somewhere to sit down and have some beers and a large pie.
There are pies that keep things simple with toppings like crumbled sausage or pepperoni. There are pizzas that get just a little wild with meatballs, dollops of pesto, and ricotta. And then, there’s a ragtag lineup of misfits that would normally be denied entry to a pizza party, like a breakfast pie with country gravy and runny eggs, or one with wild boar ragu, fried sage, and Funyuns. Steer toward these over the underseasoned red-sauced classics.
The one pizza that truly shines here is the pastrami pie, complete with gruyere fondue, caramelized onion, pickles, and an everything bagel-spiced crust. It's been consistently our favorite pie in the house, and has stood the test of time beautifully. The other slices, not so much. If you find yourself in the neighborhood and are desperate for cheese and sauce on crust, South Town Pie will do just fine.
If you’re only going to get one pizza here, this is it. The crust is sprinkled with everything bagel seasoning and layered with gruyere fondue, pastrami, pickles, and caramelized onions. It’s also surprisingly light.
Do you require some plain cheese pizza? This will achieve your goals, but it won't surpass your expectations.
Same deal as the cheese pizza, but swap out the basil and add in some flavorful sausage. Dip it in ranch and have a nice day.
This is one of the special “unicorn” pies that is only sometimes available. On paper, you shouldn’t want to eat this. Instead of sauce, there’s country gravy, and it’s topped with breakfast sausage, peppers, bacon, cheese, and a fried egg. It’s a mess, and it’s what you want.
