Antonio's Pizza - West Pittston

Something For Everyone at Antonio's


Antonio's Pizza on the corner of Luzerne and Wyoming Avenues in West Pittston stormed on my radar via social media.  They post frequently throughout the day with unique gourmet pizzas featuring everything from a cheesy Sicilian to a crazy gourmet pizza drizzled with Mike's Hot Honey.  I feel like every day I see a new creation out of this pizzeria and I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to see what they come up with next.  I understand that lunch time is a prime time to head over because they have an impressive array of various pizza creations on the slice counter ready to be devoured.

I haven't yet been able to get to Antonio's for lunch, but the First Lady, Pizza Prince, and I were able to get there for a Pizza Friday to dine in while it was very busy.  The setup is pretty efficient - you order at the counter and they let you know when your food is ready.  Pour your own drinks and you're ready to roll!  The dining area is really nice and relaxing spot to chill out and eat some pizza, but the smell of the wings at the table next to us were calling our name as well, so we placed our order for a large pizza, some mild wings, and some mild garlic parmesan wings.  The wings were big, tasty, and really cheap at a dozen for only $7.25!  Wings these days are nearing closer and closer to a buck a piece in many places, so this throwback price was refreshing to see.

Despite us dining during the dinner rush on a weekend, the pizza was ready in no time at all.  We had a piping hot, steaming like crazy, nicely cooked pizza on our table in less than 12 minutes!  The pizza featured a slightly thicker and more dense dough that was easy to grab a hold of and chow down on.  No flop here!  The dough had solid texture and a pleasant, light taste and was cooked thoroughly to a light crispness.  The sauce was on the sweeter side and was seasoned a bit, and it reminded me very much of Original Italian Pizza, or Tomassino's, if you've ever tried either of those locations.  Smooth texture, vibrant appearance, refreshing taste, and really the signature ingredient in this pizza.  The cheese pulled it all together with what I thought was straight mozzarella.

Overall, this was a really enjoyable pizza.  As I've said about Original Italian Pizza and many others, this is the type of pizza that you will have a hard time finding people that dislike it.  It plays to everyone's taste buds and offers equal parts neutral and flavorful with some fine craftswomanship (screw you spellcheck, I will write CRAFTSWOMANSHIP if I darn well please!) and painstaking care going into each pie.



This pizza was really good, but I do plan on going back during lunch time to try some of the gourmet pizzas.  The look awesome and I've gotten a ton of positive feedback from the NEPA Nation about the various combinations Antonio's creates.  Coincidentally, you can see all of these creations on Antonio's Facebook page as they post constantly and I believe they are one of the best pizza social media pages to follow in NEPA!  Check out the pic below for just a couple of day's worth of pizza photos.
