#39 This Pizza We Ordered At A Restaurant In Altoona, Pennsylvania

Image source: ImMelissaning

We were driving from Pittsburgh to Philly and stopped by at Altoona as we were hungry. We went to this one restaurant and the waiter strongly suggested that we try their specialty, the Altoona-style pizza. We assumed it’d be good and was popular for a reason since it was named after the city. Little did we know it was going to be this atrocity.

Apparently, this type of pizza was only served at the Altoona Hotel. But the hotel caught fire some years ago and had to be shut down. The other local restaurants then picked up the mantle and started making the Altoona-style pizza.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
