NY Style Pizza with Cup N Char Pepperoni from Gio's Pizza Co. in Clarks Summit, PA.

Gio's Pizza Co has opened in the Gerrity's plaza at 100 Old Lackawanna Trail, Clarks Summit, PA in the location that has featured quality pizzerias like Pizza by Pappas, Donio's Pizza, Fiorillo's Pizza, and Summit Slice over the years.  This location holds a special place in my heart as Donio's was the place where I worked for a number of years and first learned to make pizza.  I was ultra-excited when I learned there were some Donio's roots in the new ownership team!

I popped in after grabbing some groceries to grab a slice and check the place out.  They remodeled the dining room, now featuring a modern decor and a new long galley style table in the dining room.  The place looks good, it's slick, clean, and feels new yet familiar.  They offer dine-in, take-out, and delivery services.

I ordered a cheese slice for the road and observed some of the operation and the owner was gracious enough to take a few minutes to tell me about the place.  I watched how he carefully prepared each pizza and it was evident that taking the time to cook everything properly was part of the approach.  The 18" pizzas are baked on screens in the very same ovens that I made pizza in years ago!  

The pizza itself looks very good and gave me some flashbacks to the Donio's days with an updated feel. The pizzas I've seen on social and the ones I observed going out the door were all cooked beautifully with a nice dark/golden brown crust and some charring around the edges.  They were quite heavy handed on the cheese to a level at which some would call extra cheese so they didn't jip me on this slice.  The high proportion of cheese concealed the flavor of the sauce a bit, but it was a smooth, light, neatly seasoned sauce that many will like.  The crust was tender, slightly crisp, and foldable.  This pizza fits comfortably into the "party pleaser" category that if you took it to a party, chances are everyone will enjoy it as it offers something for everybody.

I look forward to ordering a full pie and updating this review in the near future.  Best of luck to Gio's Pizza Co!
