Amadeus Pizzeria: "Pizza should not be like this."
As you can see, this place has recently changed names, from "Famous Original Something" to "Amadeus" apparently, and instead of making a new awning, they just plastered up some cheap vinyl stickers over the old one. It would be kind of charming if they had good pizza, but since their slice is total crap it's just another nail in the coffin.
I couldn't seem to get a picture of this slice that wasn't weirdly lit, but no matter. This piece of pizza didn't deserve me to expend any energy on it. The fact that I am even writing about it is a travesty. Check out what happened after I took my first bite:
There's a lot going on in this picture that bears noting. First of all, check out the cheese/dough separation, it's a total Dead Skin Mask. If you cast your eyes upwards from that atrocious sight, you'll notice that the dough has split from the crust in a way that would break even the coldest heart. None of this is acceptable, even for a slice with the highest quality ingredients, so the fact that this place had brittle, dense crust and an overly garlicky sauce was a kick in the guts after a push to the ground.
