Staying in Astoria for 3 nights. Our first night here (6/21/18) we decided we just wanted to stay in the hotel room and have pizza delivered. I placed the order over the phone (this location doesn't do internet ordering) - was told it would be about 45 to 50 minutes. It was actually delivered in under 30 minutes.
I had a small Jungle Veggie pizza - and no I'm not a vegetarian - (Creamy alfredo sauce, onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, black olives, zucchini, roma tomatoes, marinated artichoke hearts, black pepper). One of the best tasting pizza's I've had. I don't like pizza if it's got too much sodium in the sauce - this was just right! Lots of veggies that gave the pizza a wonderful flavor combination. The crust was baked just the way I like it too - baked well, but not OVER cooked (lightly browned, no 'char'). Edge crust was crunchy on the outside, nice and soft on the inside.
My wife had a small Carribean Crunch pizza (sun-dried tomato pesto sauce, dijon chicken, sliced almonds, mango, feta cheese, fresh garlic). She loved it. I'm not a fan of fruit on pizza, so the mango flavor next to dijon chicken tasted odd to me. But again, she loved it!
We also had an order of their "Garlic Twisty Bread" - very buttery, with basil and parmesean cheese. Baked just right - almost like soft pretzel twists. 8 twisty sticks in an order. The pan it was delivered in had a significant amount of melted butter with basil flowing around the bottom of the pan. Break open a stick, let the soft interior soak up some butter - VERY tasty!
All the way around, textures and flavor combinations were wonderful. Will definately order from Sahara Pizza next time we're in Astoria.
