The Turtleboy Sports Pizza Tour de Worcester is back, and this week we’re hitting up the aptly named “Woosta Pizza.” It was this Turtleboy’s first time to this place but I’ve heard good things. And let me tell you, the place was crawling with nostalgia. Who remembers what this place was growing up?
The correct answer is of course, McDonalds. The ghetto McDonalds that you didn’t EVER wanna go to. It was where the Mid Town mall regulars came to eat and make life uncomfortable for normal people. Anyway, just walking into this place feels weird because all I can think about was 39 cent Wednesday cheeseburgers when I saw all the seating:
One thing I loved about this place was the fact that they have pizza by the slice.
How come you never see that anymore? There’s five million pizza joints in this city and almost none of them have pizza by the slice. I really don’t understand what’s so hard about this. Anyway, let’s take a look at the hot cheese pie:
As you can see, Woosta pizza is all about the dough:
I have no idea what causes those bubbles that appear in the dough, but I freaking love it. Most of the pizza places around Worcester are Greek pizza joints (not that there’s anything wrong with that). But Woosta pizza is clearly going for the Italian style. Usually that means it’s a little bigger because it’s not cooked in a pan.
As for the taste test, I give it a B+. I liked it because it didn’t make me feel like a fat bastard afterwards, which I almost always do after eating pizza around here. It’s not as saucy or cheesy, but it’s definitely one of the better doughs I’ve had around town. Nice and chewy.
Mrs. Turtleboy gives it an A because she’s all about the crust. Meanwhile Turtleboy Jr is going through this phase right now where he purposely breaks the rules just to see what will happen. And when we eat, the rules are pretty simple, close your mouth and don’t chew more than you can eat. Of course he treats that as an invitation to keep shoving food down his gullet into there’s no room left at the inn. We tell him, “Turtleboy Jr, stop eating so much at once.” Of course he then treats this as an invitation to take another piece and start going to town on it. Now that he’s got this clusterfuck of Woosta Pizza in his mouth he has the bright idea to swallow it all at once. Right on cue he starts coughing, we freak out, and he throws it up everywhere. I’m so close to putting this kid on EBay and seeing what I can get for him. Either that or pulling a Duggar and sending him to a work camp until he comes back normal.
Up next is Boomer’s Pizza. If you work in, own, or know a pizza shop around Worcester that would like to be featured on Turtleboy Sports, have them send us an email at [email protected] or message us on Facebook and we’ll set it up.
