Hard Times Pizza Company Restaurant Review

: There’s nothing fancy about this neighborhood pizza joint, which features Sicilian- and Neapolitan-style pies. One can drop in for a slice, or order a whole pizza to share, though there are plenty of other options on the lengthy menu. Salads include a classic caprese as well as a green and red kale salad in a lemon vinaigrette. Baked chicken wings are spicy, and a bevy of classic dishes includes baked ziti, eggplant Parmigiana and meat lasagna. Pizzas can be anointed with traditional toppings and specialty items such as buffalo chicken, Korean-style bulgogi beef and pesto shrimp. A gluten-free option is also on order. For dessert, the choices are limited to cheesecake, a brownie and chocolate fudge cake.
