Famous Pizza's hand-stretched, thin-crust pies are made fast, made fresh, layered with good-quality toppings and portioned generously, top to bottom. That's to be expected: Call yourself Famous Pizza, and pizza should be what you do best. But the thirty-year-old Famous also offers chicken wings, salads and sandwiches on fresh-baked bread, which really means they're made with pizza dough and filled with pizza toppings. On Tuesday, there's a baked-spaghetti special, and at all times, one of the city's best soft calzones.
