Three months ago I reviewed G & D Pizzaria, and stated I would be visiting them again, and it corresponds perfectly with the 2009 Pizza Files Summer Binge (part 5). I won't go into great detail about G&D in this post (see my previous post or G & D Pizzaria web-site), I'm just going to stick to what we ate.
We started with a single trip to the salad bar. Every thing was fresh, but your choices were limited for dressings, just the routine Kraft selections. On any future visits I will try the Greek Salad with the Homemade dressing.
For pizza, my fellow pizza eaters ordered a medium "Country Music" it has sausage, pepperoni, ham, ground beef, bacon and Canadian bacon. I ordered a medium with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, onions and Gyro [meat]. I don't often order sausage and/or bacon on my pizza so I was pleasantly surprised at how good the Country Music pizza was. The sausage and bacon were in just the right amount as were the rest of the ingredients. I would gladly order the Country Music again, maybe add some onions. G&D doesn't have meat balls but they do Gyro [meat], and in my book that equels Greek meatballs. The Gyro was good even if a bit oily. If I were to order my regular pizza again I would probably go with the ground beef, and order a Gyros pita sandwich for an appetizer. The sauce and crust on both pizza's were great. The crust had a crispy edge and was golden brown on the bottem. On my prevouis visit I hadn't noticed how they roll under the edge of the crust to give it a lip to hold the sauce (see photo).
G & D Pizzaria is still in a class all by it's self, and If you find your self hungry and in Columbia, MO it would be worth your time to visit them. G & D Pizzaria is located in the Crossroads West Shopping Center at the corner of W. Broadway and S. Stadium Blvd Columbia, MO.
