Day 34: A Stadium Pizza for the Big Game!

I kind of wish I were having a Super Bowl party, just so I could order The Stadium Pizza!

A 18×26 pizza full of fresh ingredients: fresh mozzarella, perfect sauce, delicious crust. Yum!

Where can you find this amazing pizza? Salerno’s, of course.

The Salerno family brought their incredible family recipes here from Italy in 1957. In 1966, brothers Joseph, Arnaldo, and Vincenzo opened their first Salerno’s location in Berwyn. It was an instant hit.

Since then, they’ve opened four more locations, all still committed to the freshest ingredients for their delicious recipes.

Want just a slice? For $5 you’ll get “slice” and a drink- though be ready to share- a slice is 1/4 of a 16″ pizza. My favorite slice comes from the Sicilian: olive-oil, fresh mozzarella, & roma tomato pizza. Gluten-free crusts are an option too.

Not in the mood for pizza? Their pasta dishes are just as delicious. All of the pastas on the menu are also available in a 1/2 portion. I had a half portion of the
linguine with shrimp & broccoli for around $7 and still had plenty to take home.

So, before the big game starts, call for your delivery. No location close to you? The next generation of Salerno’s are soon following in their parents footsteps and opening a few more locations soon.

Who delivers your favorite pizza?

Day 26: Not healthy, but oh so yummy!

9 times out of 10 we eat really healthy. My kids are good about vegetables, sushi, and will pretty much eat anything I make.

But, every so often I really want something messy, super-cheesy, and just plain unhealthy. And not pizza.

This kind of craving seemed like the perfect excuse to try Fat Ricky’s. They do have a couple other locations, but recently opened one down the street from my house.

Believe me, even though we’re a pretty healthy & organic home, and I occasionally enjoy an unhealthy meal, I still don’t want chemical-laden, fake garbage ingredients. Let’s be clear- you aren’t going to a place called Fat Ricky’s for salmon & rice or low-cal dinner. But, if you want a killer chicken parm sandwich oozing with cheese & sauce running down your hands, this is the place.

They’ve been using their family recipes since 1963; apparently they’re known for their pizza and steak sandwiches.

And, though most people dining in (and picking up orders) had pizza, we opted to try two sandwiches: meatball sub and the chicken parm.
Splitting the two was easily enough for the 4 of us, they’re big and filling. While I wasn’t a fan of the meatball sub, the chicken parm was great. Lightly breaded, tons of cheese, and plenty of sauce.

The young girl working the counter was very nice & I have to give her the credit for suggesting her favorite sandwich- the chicken parmesan.

I obviously don’t recommend Fat Ricky’s for every day, but when you’re in the mood for “good, unhealthy” food with great ingredients- Fat Ricky’s is it!

Any other favorites for a “junk food” fix?
