Pizza Review
Considered to be near the top of the Boston pizza game and a major rival of Regina’s, Santarpio’s offers pies slightly bigger than bar pies and lots of great toppings. However, just judging the cheese pizza, it’s not even in Regina’s ballpark. The sauce is fantastic, a delightfully sweet blend of crushed plum tomatoes and spices. The cheese is above average and enhanced by the Parmesan dumped on top. The dough is crispy but lacks any real taste. The crust is super crispy but totally void of any flavor and has the consistency of a cracker. Overall, it’s pretty good but not better than Regina’s or any of the best NY pies. If this is considered top 5 Boston pizza, I feel bad for that city.
