Those iconoclastic dough spinners at the best pie joint in town, Apizza Scholls (although Tastebud is coming hard), who have also been called "One of the Top Five Pizzerias in America", and are also equally famous for their our-way-or-the-highway approach to special requests and to-go orders...both will be met with a fake friendly "Sorry", which I kind of like...and their proclivity for running out of dough and closing early have actually expanded their hours! Shockingly, they are now celebrating "Sicilian Sundays" from 4:00-8:00pm every Sunday. They've been doing it for 3 weeks and when w and I were in last night our server said it has been rocking, and their Sunday-only sandwiches (another WTF?! expansion of their menu), a Classic Italian Hero with Genoa salami, cappicola, mortadella, provolone, and the usual garnishes; and their Classic Meatball Parm Hero with house made meatballs, mozzarella, and parmesan are reputed to be awesome. I'll be reporting back to you all soon, I promise! Besides those two temptations the menu also includes a Sicilian Pizza (cheese & tomato) with your choice of 1 or 2 toppings off a list that includes sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, anchovies, mushroom, olive, onion, or ricotta. And you can also add garlic and basil for a buck each.. Their regular pizzas aren't available. You can also grab a House Salad or their Caesar (for my particular palate one of the best in town). Now here's the REALLY shocking part: people who walk-in (no phone-in orders) can also order to-go!! The end of days must be near, because with this seismic business shift and the opening of Por Que No Taqueria my edible life on upper Hawthorne is getting too good!
