This Local Pizza Is So Delish Even Takeout Feels Like You're On A Food Tour Of Italy
Travel Is Not About Finding Yourself, It’s About Finding Pizza
It’s happening again. A bunch of people in my feed are updating from Italy (The cities! The countryside! The coffee! And yessss, the food!!!) and I’m more than a little bit jelly. There is a bright side for the rest of us back home, however. And by bright side I mean a pizza so yummy that one slice will make you feel as though you’re on a two week tour of Florence, Rome, and Venice.
The Best Local Pie That You Haven't Tried...Yet
Anywho, fast forward to this one night when one of my brothers calls and says he's bringing over pizza. Little did we know how unbelievably delicious it was going to be. Yes, it made quite the impression. In other words, there were no leftovers. (That's the real test, righttt?) And prior to this adventure in takeout pizza pies, I had no idea this place even existed. Apparently, the guy from that “You’re Going To Love My Food!” billboard on the highway is the key to all this pizza greatness.
In Crust We Trust
I've tried the food at Osteria Toscana in Johnston, but while I was sleeping (or scrolling Instagram), the owner went and opened something right next door called Pizzeria Romano, which is where our much-loved pies originated. Friends, if you like your pizza tasting like something you'd sample during a 2+ week foody tour of you-know-where, not overloaded with tons of cheese or too salt-y tasting, and you're a fan of thin crust, then this is a destination not to be missed. Run or walk briskly as I've been known to do.
Someone else I know, who apparently goes all the time (to the one in Johnston...there's another location in Lincoln), also wanted me to say that the pizzeria has a real neighborhood vibe - popular with locals, has a steady stream of regulars, and so on. In case you want to eat in instead of taking out. And heck I might even be there enjoying a pie.
