    The Really Important Stuff - Pizza & Ice Cream

    Last year LaRosa's and UDF teamed up and gave away pizza and ice cream when the Reds threw for 11 strike outs in a game. Were they foolish enough to run this promo again in 2013 or did they let it fade away? I had heard that both companies took a financial beating on the give aways.

    I was lucky enough to take the family to 2 games where the Reds accomplished this. There were only like 7 k's through 7 and then Broxton and Chappy came through.

    They not only make pizza, they make the best pizza. It is the sauce. It is just better than everywhere else. If I could get Chicago style pizza with LaRosas pizza sauce, I would be the happiest person ever (at least while eating).

    I ended up giving my UDF coupons away - not because I dislike UDF but because it was for ice cream scoops w/cone. I guess I could ask for the scoop in a cup, but never found out. The small pizzas were great!

    My neighbor does too. I think he is crazy. But only a small part because of his pizza taste.

    Re: The Really Important Stuff - Pizza & Ice Cream

    I worked there many years ago and it got me interested in making my own; I once calculated that between the pies I made while working at LaRosa's and in my own kitchen, I was we'll over 150,000.

    LaRosa's is not in the same league with something like Dewey's, but I don't think it's a bad product, probably somewhere between the junk from Papa Johns and Dewey's. The sauce is sweet, which some people do not like (I really like it) and the dough is pretty dense, which back when I worked there was due to the fact that they made the shells at one place, froze them and distributed them to the restaurants. It's difficult to make an airy, soft dough if it's not done fresh. I think they make hand tossed now, probably recognizing that this is an evolving standard.

    One thing I always liked about LaRosas was that they baked their pies on stone, rather than those stupid conveyor ovens. If it's not baked on stone, DIRECTLY on stone, its not good pizza. Last pie I had from there about five years ago was stone baked.

    I have great memories of working at LaRosas. Buddy and my dad are friends and I worked at one of the original franchises, started by one of Buddy's close acquaintances from Fairmount. He fostered a great tradition of treating the restaurant like a part of the neighborhood, and he also did countless things for people, many of whom had special needs and ended up with some kind of job in the business. If you want to know why people love the pizza, look to Buddy.
