Review: Where’s Waldo? It’s in Kansas City. And although KC is known for it’s BBQ, it may soon be known for pizza. Why? Because, in a word, “that sh!t tastes good”.
After a short drive to the “Waldo” neighborhood in Kansas City, my brother (phat pocket j) and I quickly spotted Waldo Pizza. It was a weekday night and there was a small wait. We were greeted with a sign that read, “it’s worth the wait”. So, we bellied up to the bar, where they have a nice selection of local micro-brews.
Half way through our first Boulevard Pale Ale, we were seated. We jumped right in and ordered an extra large (16″) St. Louis Style pie with mushroom, green peppers, chicken. What’s St. Louis Style? It’s a rich blend of NY Cheddar, Provolone, Swiss, and Mozzarella on an extra thin crispy crust glazed with garlic butter and a light touch of sauce.
It was good. The crust was thin, crisp on the outside – but you could still fold a slice. The blend of cheeses was great. and not too cheesey. The toppings were fresh. I barely noticed the sauce (they weren’t kiddin’ when they said “light touch of sauce”. It wasn’t a “white pie”, the hint of sauce takes the edge off of the cheese.
I spied the table next to us. They had one of the Honey Whole Wheat crusted pies. It looked good, too. Now that I know where to find Waldo, it’s safe to say that I’ll be back.
