I’ve written about the best pizza in the world before. That pizza is made at Revello’s Pizza in Old Forge, and, thankfully, is miles away from me. See, if it wasn’t, I would either be eating an entire pie per day by myself or I’d have to go to incredible pizza rehab because, holy wow, it’s honestly the best pizza ever.
Now, you can disagree with me on Revello’s being the best pizza, but, you can’t deny the fact that if the best pizza isn’t made at Revello’s, it’s made somewhere in the Scranton / Wilkes-Barre area.
There’s just something about the not quite Sicilian crust coupled with the tangy sauce that… alsdkfjsdl;akfjsdlfk AHHH!
Well, now I’ve got problems because there is a Revello’s Scranton / Wilkes-Barre style pizza place in Bethlehem Township!
That pizza — thicker than a New York City-style pie, but not as doughy as the Sicilian version — is the cornerstone of Fratzola’s Pizzeria Café (FACEBOOK PAGE), which opened earlier this month in the Giant Foodshopping center on Easton Avenue in Bethlehem Township.
Owner Frank Fratzola, formerly of Scranton, says the square-pizza recipe has been an instant hit with the Valley’s Scranton and Wilkes-Barre transplants.
Fratzola, a former Ethan Allen franchisee, got out of the business and decided to take on the venture with sons Ryan and Frank Jr.
The trio renovated a 2,000-square-foot space to suit a sit-down restaurant. Enhancements include wood floors, dim lighting, an earth-tone color palate and booth seating.
On the menu you’ll find ravioli, eggplant rolantini, calzones, strombolis, burgers, soups, salads and sandwiches like cheesesteaks and wraps. And yes, you can also order the traditional round pizza if you wish. SOURCE: The Morning Call Retail Watch
