Pittsburgh Pizza Club

My lovely friend here at the Taste of Pittsburgh asked me to guest blog about Pizza in Pittsburgh. Since it's not a favorite food of her's (and I cannot convince her to actually attend Pittsburgh Pizza Club meetings), I happily obliged.

A little background on the PPC: founded in January 2010 by a group of friends who found themselves spread too far throughout the city of Pittsburgh to get together on a regular basis and coordinate many weekends, it was decided that dinner once monthly was necessary so we wouldn't forget what each other look like. So once a month, we get together, and we eat pizza. Yum!

This month we decided to eat at Vincent's Pizza Park in East Pittsburgh.

Now, if you are looking for an upscale or commercial pizza place, Vinnie's is NOT for you. It is the kind of unique neighborhood place that can never be duplicated. The pizza is cheesy, has big handles of crust, overwhelming toppings, and grease pools - a deadly combination that won't make you regret shaving a couple months off of your life.

Pittsburgh Pizza Club's rating system is slightly different from Taste of Pittsburgh's. We rate on a scale of 1-10 (no half numbers) and include, deliciousness, taste, atmosphere, friendliness of staff, etc all in one vote.
Overall, Vincent's was rated at 7.9 by PPC.

Here's some basic info:
998 Ardmore Blvd
East Pittsburgh, PA 15112
Reservations: definitely not taken
Beverages: Soda/Pop by the can, bottled water and iced teas, bottled beer, and beers served in ice cold frosted mugs on draft
Price: Total bill for 1 large, 3 medium, 1 small (mostly topped) pizzas, sodas and beer ended up being around $11 per person.
