There are good reasons why pizza rules in the world of takeout foods - it's fast, easy, universally appealing and even tastes good cold. One of the newer pizza emporiums in the Farmington Valley area, Joe Pizza, offers a wide range of interesting pies, along with unusual appetizers and salads.
Pizzas emerge from the brick oven with smoky, chewy, charred crusts. The onion lover's pie is piled with caramelized onions and bacon. Spinach Patch pizza is topped with sautéed spinach, garlic and red peppers, all topped with fresh mozzarella. If you like seafood, try the pizza alla pescatore, made with shrimp, clams, squid, plum tomatoes, garlic and herbs.
Joe Pizza also offers grinders, sandwiches and pasta entrees, along with burgers that include topping choices of lettuce, fried onions, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, chipotle sauce and hot pepper relish at no extra charge.
