NEPA natives and Viewmont Mall veterans know all too well the true delight of sitting down with a warm slice of Roma Pizza in the midst of their shopping experience.
When Buffalo Wild Wings moved into the mall, Roma had to find a new home, which I think will only help its business and allow more people to experience the delicious pizza Roma has to offer.
I do consider myself to be a pizza snob, so believe me when I say it takes a lot for a pie to impress me. Roma Pizza happily exceeded my expectations when I visited Saturday, Oct. 3.
In Roma’s new space, located at 840 on the Scranton Carbondale Highway, they have been able to offer guests a full-service, sit down restaurant with an extended menu that includes pasta dishes and entrees. Roma also has some of the best pizza in the valley. That’s why when I visited, I ordered the pizza. When ordering pizza from Roma, there are a couple tips to know.
First, always order the extra-large tray. The reason for this is they use the same amount of dough as a large tray, it’s just spread thinner. The thinness of the crust allows for the perfect folding capabilities of your slice of pizza. If you’re not into folding your pizza, the thin crust lets you enjoy the sauce and cheese combination without being too doughy – a pizza nightmare.
Next, know your toppings. When deciding which type of pizza you want to get, you can keep it simple, or get a little crazy. Their plain pizza is one of the best I have ever had in the area. However, I indulged in some steak and cheese pizza, which was packed with flavor. I was full after one slice (something that’s almost unheard of). The steak tasted like it was seasoned with salt and pepper before being put on the pizza, which elevates the flavors and adds more dimensional to the taste. The blend of cheeses complimented the steak perfectly and created a velvety smooth curtain to lay atop the crust and steak.
A non-pizza related tip is to also order garlic knots. They are filled with garlic and Parmesan cheese and make the perfect side kick to any pizza.
So, next time you’re hanging out with friends and someone suggests ordering pizza, I encourage you to call Roma. You will not be disappointed.
