Arcaro & Genell - Old Forge, PA

Old Forge Red Pizza from Arcaro and Genell in Old Forge

My First Pizza Review - The Journey Begins in the Pizza Capital of the World!

I've had Arcaro's pizza at least a dozen time in my lifetime, and I must say I was looking forward to this pizza being my first review since it's sold in the "Pizza Capital of the World." 

Much has changed with me and Arcaro and Genell since I reviewed this back in 2012, so please check out my more recent reviews of A&G!  2014 Pizza Review 2020 Pizza Review

When I first open the box (see photo) the incredible smell of Arcaro's signature sauce quickly filled my vehicle, and I couldn't resist grabbing a cut even before I returned home.  After taking my first bite, I tasted the light, flavorful sauce, (which I think may have some onion in it?).  The cheese was a bit salty on this particular tray and was perhaps a tad bit out of balance on the flavor side. 
Another signature of the A&G pizza is it's thick, fluffy crust that allows a person to eat numerous slices in one sitting and not even realize it.
