Squirreled away in the Rock Center concourse, this small pizza storefront offers most of the Italian-Cajun pizza specialties of the other locations (the Earth Mother, the Tony Clifton, etc.), without the hordes of screaming children. Try the andouille or tasso as toppings; several good vegetarian options available as well. Pricier than other slice joints, but one of the best pizza options in midtown.

I went here despite 2 coworkers saying it sucked - because two others said it was good :( In fact, it was the description of the sauce being "spicier than normal marinara" and the crust using "cornmeal" that made me think it would be wonderful. Now, if any of you have been lucky enough to have Einstein Bros Bagels (based in Texas and sadly not available here) - or if you grew up with old fashioned cornbread like I did - then you would understand how, cornmeal and spicy sauce sounds great (esp to a Texas gal)... but it was not to be!

Whether it was the sauce or the strange seasoning in the cheese I can't say - but apparently "spicy" is just another way to say "Medicinal" because THAT is truly how this pizza tasted. Also, the crust was far too thin for my liking - it was crispy - but I like a little thickness and chew-ability with my crunch. The cheese didn't have enough creaminess, there was no real marinara sauce on the pizza (though I asked for "a lot") - the jalapenos were crazy diced fresh jalapenos thrown on after cooking (I prefer sliced canned jalapenos cooked onto my pizza) and the andouille sausage was nothing to write home about.

Where is decent pizza in midtown? So far, I have to stick with Pronto Pizza. And never, never go back to Two Boots! What a waste of an unhealthy lunch. sigh.

Pros: Cute colorscheme?

Cons: Crappy Food

Editorial from

Classic Louisiana ingredients like andouille top some of the pies at this popular pizza joint.
