Colarusso's Coal Fired Pizza - Dickson City.

Anthracite Fired Pizza in NEPA's Coal Region Makes So Much Sense and Tastes So Good!

A beautiful lineup of pizzas from Colarusso's Coal Fired Pizza in Dickson City, PA.
Colarusso's Coal Fired Pizza is conveniently located in Dickson City next to Target.  The Colorusso's name in Northeast Pennsylvania is synonymous with Old Forge Style pizza and their famous white tomato and garlic pizza.  Colarusso's Coal Fired Pizza breaks out of that rectangular mold to craft round pizzas in an anthracite coal fired oven that routinely cooks at temperatures in excess of 900 degrees.  Some of the most famous pizzerias in the world in places like New York, NY and New Haven, CT cook their pies in wood fired ovens, but to my knowledge Colorusso's is the first locally to heat their ovens with coal.

The restaurant provides a unique urban casual environment that is relaxing enough to walk in with a t-shirt and shorts, but classy enough to feel like you're out on a special date night.  Their menu features moderately priced items comprised of high quality ingredients and portion sizes are generally huge so it represents a solid value for customers.  

The cauliflower crust pizza at Colarusso's Coal Fired Pizza is gluten free, but you'd never know it!
I teamed up once again with Pizza Ron from We Talk Shirty and headed to Colorusso's to try not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but 5 different pizzas in one sitting!  This shatters the previous NEPA Pizza Review record of 4 reviews in one setting.  Luckily all of the pizzas were light, vibrant, fresh, and easy to eat so five slices didn't weigh us down!  Check out the video and ratings below for all of the details on all five pizzas - spoiler alert - they are all excellent!
