Pizza Show Down - Columbus Market - Pete's -vs- Kate and Al's - Columbus, NJ

So today was installation #1 of the pizza showdown at Columbus Market in Columbus, NJ. The two places are Pete's, as well as Kate and Al's. All the locals seem to have their favorites, and from what I have heard, that is Kate and Al's.

That said, I took a ride over there for lunch today, and gave Pete's a try. Pete's is located inside, just out the doors close to the Amish Market. Pie was hot out of the oven, and I went for the plain cheese since I can't eat any meat today being the good Catholic that I am, and here we are in the season of lent.

Nice square pie with a good crispy crust, that although thick, is light and airy. The sauce could have used just a touch of seasoning. Nothing some dried Italian herbs couldn't take care of, as well as a few red pepper flakes, and some salt and pepper. Nice cheese on the pie that was hot and gooey.

All in all, two nice slices of pie, and a steal for around $5 with a large drink. Stay tuned as I give Kate and Al's a shot next weekend.

With that said, who's been there, and which pie is your favorite? Cheers!  -F. Scott
