Here’s a first (aside from Papa John’s calling me out on Twitter). The owner of Sammy’s sent me a message wanting me to review his pizza. A 40 minute drive to Niagara Falls and excuse the picture, I had to take one at home as the app would refresh and force me to take a new pic. On to the review! The dough. Evidence of cornmeal on the bottom to give it some crispness. Similar to a cracker like crust, it had a clean bite and was cooked well. We ordered the “NY Style” but it’s more of a Buffalo NY style. Not bad but it’s not your big, easy to fold thin NY slice. Aerating the dough before you add sauce might be something to experiment with (I know the owner is reading this). The cheese, standard and pre shredded. It has a lower milk fat content as there was hardly any grease on the parchment paper. There was oregano sprinkled on top of the slice, always a bonus. The sauce. Well, it needs a little help. Most places add water to their paste to help distribute and get the most out of the sauce. They did it here but played it safe by not adding too much sugar! It’s not sweet, bonus, but it needs more. I couldn’t taste the sauce as much in with the slice but it was there. Overall… This is one of the better “bar” pies that I’ve had. It’s a 6.8 pie all day long. My suggestion- make the NY pie thinner and bigger and use flour for just the NY style instead of cornmeal. Bonus- the owner brought out a couple of specialty slices that were great! If you’re in the area, stop by Sammy’s. Cool guy and good pizza. Thanks for the invite!

Good sauce to cheese ratio. Lots of cup and char pepperoni. Not bad pizza. Not gonna blow you away.

not too sure how to describe this. some bites literally tasted like Nothing. others had great taste. crust was matter. tasted like nothing just took up space. this pizza was as consistent as josh allen his rookie year

Now call me crazy but if you came here you wouldn’t know how to describe this slice. I personally don’t at all but I know I liked it.

This pizza had an interesting taste to it. I liked the oregano, pretty much no grease. The crust had nothing to it either which was disappointing. Very bland. I don’t really know how to describe what I taste in this but it’s not bad at all.

Very soft pizza very little if any real crisp. Zesty sauce, but the crust is just to blah.

Needed to be cooked a little longer. Sauce was bland. Score would’ve been a little higher. Pizza took a while to be delivered. Score would’ve been higher if hotter.

Great Western New York square pie with cup and char pepperoni. Actually offended that Bar stool hasn’t come to this neck of the woods yet. Jon Bones Jones for the first review would be cool.
