Nice, Laurel beat me to posting any information about the Laurel Pizzeria. Lesson learned: don’t sit on an idea too long! Laurel is big enough for two opinions, and it would appear that we both agree.
Don’t let the familiar brick exterior of Laurel Pizzeria fool you. The inside is completely redesigned, and it looks beautiful. Actually it looks like you’re walking into a higher end restaurant. And the food… yes, it’s great! I have had the opportunity to eat in the restaurant twice and carry-out once. For the first “eat-in” we ordered the house special pizza. It was a supreme pizza on steroids, with large toppings in abundance. It was very filling and very good. Second time through I got a pizza steak that had so much meat it was falling out of the roll. It was also very good. Third time through was carry-out for a large cheese pizza. The order was finished in the time promised, and yes, it was very good.
As you can already tell, I am a simple person and definitely no food critic. I can only say that it is worth your hard-earned bucks to give this place a try.
If you’re coming into town, Laurel Pizzeria is located on North Central Avenue just south of 5 Points in the old Pizza Palace building.
