My favorite pizza in the whole world doesn’t exist anymore. Our local pizza joint while I was in high school was called the “Little Italian” and their pizza was out of this world. Not too thick, not to thin, awesome sauce and a crisp, flaky crust that complimented all of it. I have had a lot of pizza in my life, but the Little Italian pie remains the unrivaled fave.
So what happened?
It was a family owned place like Agatucci’s in Peoria, but later generations decided to get out of the business and sadly it shut down.
Even sadder is that I never hit them up for their recipe before they closed…
