Surprisingly good pizza

For the fifth straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com, presented by Concordia University. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2011."

Every now and then, if you are lucky, a pleasant and unexpected surprise comes along that makes you smile and pat yourself on the back.

That's the way it was with a weekend pizza.

I'm a pizza traditionalist. When I want some, it's Zaffiro's or Calderone Club or maybe Classic Slice on North Avenue.

But Saturday night brought babysitting for my granddaughter Molly and new grandson Casey. We were on the south side and their parents suggested a pizza place just three blocks away, Pulo's Pizza at 16th and Oklahoma.

Long story short, the pizza was fantastic. Thin crisp crust, fresh ingredients and a nice price. Rarely have I had a pizza to go that was as good as this one.

Pulo's began in 1959 to feed the GI's who had experienced "pinsa" in Italy and who had brought that desire to have more back with them. They've moved a couple of times but seem to have found a comfortable home and it's well worth a try if you are in the neighborhood.

34650 I decided to try this pizza Friday night and it took an hour and half to get delivery. It was good, but not worth that kind of wait.

MilwaukeeMike - for a good thick-thin crust - try Barbiere's on Bluemound. Excellent pizza and garlic bread.

I expect a higher quality of writing from paid bloggers than unpaid bloggers.
