When The Moon Hits Your Eye Like A Big Pizza Pie -That’s Amore! Sometimes there are foods that just speak to the heart and logic has nothing to do with the way it makes us feel inside. There are many foods out there that hold a piece of my heart, but pizza may have the biggest slice! I don’t mean just any pizza, there are several types of pizza consisting from the Neapolitan style with a thin crispy crust simply topped with basil, tomato and soft mozzarella. The New York style pizza has a chewy, thin dough with slices religiously folded over before eaten. The Chicago Style, has a flaky, thick dough with toppings so heavy that a slice should only be tackled with a fork. I’ve eaten pizza from coast to coast, with toppings that vary from pesto, to smoked salmon, to hash browns. In Castroville California, one would not think of ordering a pie without artichoke hearts resting atop, while in Japan, favorite toppings may be eel, squid and even mayonnaise. The beauty of pizza is that it is so versatile. Just like matters of the heart, pizza, when it’s done right, makes you want to sing!

Located on the Rupert Square and with 70’s rock album covers adorning the interior brick walls, who would have thought that this small town pizzeria could compete with any big city pies? But they do. Anytime I bring out of towner’s to Doc’s they rave. Their pizza is so delicious and so consistent that they never disappoint. That’s why their take-out number is on my speed dial! Why can’t pizza be easy to eat when driving, because I can barely make it home when I’ve made an order to go. I have my favorite, which is a large Canadian Bacon and Mushroom with extra cheese priced at $15.94. The extra cheese is not necessary but when I order Doc’s, I go all the way! The cheese blend is a secret mix of 3 cheeses (that I know of) and has the most delicious taste and stringy texture that makes this pizza so luxurious. The crust, is a beautifully simple crust, chewy and light, topped with a perfect amount of sauce that is not too salty, not too sweet and really reflects the taste of tomatoes which compliment any topping you choose. Toppings range from pepperoni to shrimp, sauerkraut to anchovies and almost everything in between. When I find something that I love, it’s really hard to deviate away from it, but I do know that they have several lunch specials served from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.. Try two pieces of Pizza, Salad Bar and a bowl of Soup for $6.30, or choose from twelve different sandwiches on the menu. Sandwiches range from the Hubba Bubba, which includes Roast Beef, Ham, Turkey, Mustard, Mayo, Swiss Cheese, Lettuce and Tomato for $5.55, or try the yummy Philly Beef with Sautéed Onions, Green Peppers, Mushrooms, Swiss cheese and Roast Beef all baked on a Sub Bun for $5.30.
