For people who are very hungry and looking for big 16-inch pizzas that are served well-done in less than five minutes there is only one place to be: Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza.
Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza has been voted the Best Pizzeria, best wings, best Meatballs and best Service in 2014 Sun Sentinel/SouthFlorida.com, Best of South Florida Reader’s poll, Miami Herald, Miami.com, Palm Beach Post and WFLA’s iHeart Tampa Bay. It has received raving reviews when it was featured in Newsday and has been entitled the “#1 Pizza” in Zagat’s America’s Top Restaurants. And why not? Dough is made fresh every day; in-house. They are using Italian imported tomatoes. The chicken wings are never frozen so they tender to the bones. And to top it all up, service is fast and friendly.
Pizza is served well-done. You’ll see the mozzarella that is sparkling in yellow juiciness that’s fully blended into the crust. The whole crust is thickly covered that you no longer see any part of the crispy dough. You will only wonder how they have fully melted the cheese when all it took was about 4 minutes in the oven. The moment you take your first bite, you can hear the crust crackle. It is so crispy but you don’t taste any overcooked, burned portions. Then, the mozzarella just sticks and melts in your mount. Try to see anybody biting with their eyes open; you won’t. Each bite is a taste of cheese heaven.
You can try their traditional pizza pies; The Grande Mozzarella, Italian Tomatoes, Romano Cheese, Basil and olive Oil in either 12-inch or 16-inch servings with toppings of fresh Italian sausages, mushrooms, Kalamata Olives, Prosciutto, Long Hot Finger Peppers, Anchovies, Onions, Pepperoni and Sweet Peppers. Or, you can go for their Specialty Pizza Pies; the Fresh Mozzarella Sliced Tomato, Meatballs and Ricotta, Philly Cheesesteak, Eggplant Marino, Paul and Young Ron, Argula, Roasted Cauliflower Pizza, Broccoli and Rabe and Sausage and White Pizza.
And for those who want something else to go with their 16-inch super pizzas, Anthony’s also serves Italian Soul food; family-style with Focaccia bread. There’s the Meatballs with Ricotta Cheese, a generous serving of large meatballs that are slowly cooked in their fresh tomato sauce. You can also have the Eggplant Marino, Broccoli Rabe and Sausage and pork ribs with vinegar Pepper.
But Anthony’s is not just all fun and tasty food. There’s more happening at Anthony’s than the high energy customer service and the 800 degree ovens. This is; in fact, an establishment with a very big heart as every ounce of success has a corresponding give-back to the community. Each Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza store has partnered with a local charity to raise money for their causes through food sales. Participating organizations can invite their family and friends to dine at Anthony’s and their organization gets a percentage of the sale.
For the July “Give-back program” here is how it works.
- On July 14, mention Derek Teele Foundation at Clearwater and 20% of your dine-in or takeout goes to the foundation.
- On July 16, mention Operation Backbone at Anthony’s Settlers Ridges and 20% of your bill goes to the foundation.
- On July 20, just say Fair Lawn Rescue Squad at their branch in Fair Lawn and 20% of the total bill goes to this cause.
And there are so many more charity sales going on in an Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza store somewhere.
There you go, you have two good reasons to go any Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza stores, you need to treat yourself to a great pizza because you deserve it and, if your timing is right, you’ll be helping out a worthy charity in the process. If you get more free time and extra money, be sure to give a CiCi’s Pizza a try also because they also have great food for affordable price.
