Round Table Big Vinnie Pizza

bigvinnie.jpgRound Table pizzas are some of my favorites, but the prices have become so high that I rarely buy them any more. I have seen the television commercials for the Big Vinnie pizza and it looked really good. When I got a coupon for the Big Vinnie in the mail yesterday, I knew that the time had come to finally try one. The Big Vinnie is billed as an extra large, New York-style pizza. The pizza is pretty big, so the “extra large” description is accurate. I’m just not sure if calling it “New York” style is appropriate. I’ve eaten pizza in New York a couple of times and it really wasn’t anything like the Big Vinnie. This isn’t to say that the Big Vinnie wasn’t tasty, however. I really liked that it had very little sauce, my least favorite part of a pizza, and a thick, chewy edge on the crust. The cheese and pepperoni were also delicious. I actually think that I like the Big Vinnie more than I do the regular Round Table pizzas. Unfortunately, the Big Vinnie is not a regular menu item and is only available for a limited time. Get one while you still can.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

I first heard of Round Table pizzas through Ultra Marathoner Dean Karnazes...he would order a pizza while running and he'd tell the delivery guy to meet him at a certain street corner and he would make a quick transaction and eat the pizza while running. He's nuts. The Maui Zaui pizza they have is really good.

Only limited time? I could have sworn I tried my first Vinnie many years ago and just had one last month as well. If it is limited, they sure are generous with their testing window :)

i just got a coupon today for the big vinnie. i checked their website and nowhere on the menu is the big vinnie. i remembered it from a while ago, but couldn't remember what it was, the crust style, toppings...the coupon provided no picture, so thankfully, i found this site and a description. guess what i am going to do now??
