A Totonno's Virgin No More

Somehow I had gone through my entire life without eating Totonno's of Coney Island (also without ever seeing the movie Manhattan much to the horror and shock of DMR). I realize this is a crime, but I am pleased to announce that I finally did it! Ok, I've actually had Totonno's - but not from the famed ovens of Neptune Avenue, so I don't think that counts at all.

We were headed to Coney for the Siren Festival last Saturday. Before we went to check out the Black Lips and Detroit Cobras, we hit up Totonno's for a couple of pies.

We went with two large pies - one pepperoni and one sausage.

My first slice!

While I prefer the mini pepperonis found on pies at Lombardi's and Grimaldi's, I don't think I've had a pie with sauce as delicious as Totonno's. There was a little random dollop of sauce that had fallen ontothe pizza tray and I'm not afraid to say that I sopped it up with a piece crust.

Congratulations on losing your Totonno's cherry. Next time you go, order one of the special pies that not on the menu so they'll know you are experienced.

Ugh. Sorry about the typo. I meant to say "one of the special pies that are not on the menu ..."
