Crazy Doughs—You'd be mad not to like it

You would be mad not enjoy Crazy Doughs. The strange thing about Crazy Dough's is why it hasn't won greater mass appeal. An impromptu survey of random strangers on the T, yielded a surprisingly small percentage of people who are aware of this gem. They won the Best Pizza award at the International Pizza expo in 2004 and 2007! Are the Palateers the only ones truly impressed by this feat? The Palateers had a fierce argument about the reasons why this pizza restaurant has not garnered success similar to Upper Crust. Maybe because of the multitude of small pizzerias or lack of marketing, we don't know.

What we do know is that they have some pretty darn good pizza and some really cheap beer. How cheap? Try $4 dollar pitchers of PBR (true its not the best, but you can't beat that bargain). Maybe the most memorable experience of eating at Crazy Doughs is staring at their voluminous, all ready cooked pizza selection. At any given time, they might have 20 different types of pizza ready to throw in the oven for your eating enjoyment. The hardest part is figuring out what to try. This is not a pizza shop that you settle just for cheese (though it is a good slice). What did the Palateers feast upon this time? Maybe the potato bacon cheddar, the Reuben, or Roasted Portobello and goat cheese....

4 Bucks, now that is crazy!
We got a large Tuscan Mediterranean (not to be confused with their Nutty Tuscan which won best pizza in 2004). The humungous fresh pie, with copious amounts of plum tomato, marinated artichoke heart, kalamata olive, feta, mozzarella, and fresh pesto, rivaled any pie we have had yet in Boston. We nearly ate the entire pie (all 314 square inches), but we didn't pull a Thelma and Louise and saved three pieces for breakfast.

On a secondary expedition the next day, we also tried the balsamic vinegar and mushroom (Wonderfully fancy pants) and the vegetable sicilian (Mama mia thats a thick a crust!). We ate both and felt happy.

Wonderfully Fancy Pants

Thick Slice Insanity
Do yourself a favor, grab a stranger, buy'em a slice and a pitcher of PBR and become friends.
