Sicilian Pizza from La Cascia's Bakery, Medford, MA

Got some Sicilian pizza today at La Cascia's Bakery in South Medford. La Cascia's is a throwback of a place--an old Italian market, deli, and takeout place in a neighborhood that is as old-fashioned as they get.

I like going to La Cascia's on the weekends, especially around lunchtime, as you can get three slices of Sicilian pizza for under $4.00, which makes for a perfect lunch. For those who don't know, Sicilian pizza is cooked in a pan; the slices are square, and thicker than New York style pizza or Neapolitan pizza. And the Sicilian pizza at La Cascia's Bakery rivals the best in the Boston area. I still prefer the pizza at Galleria Umberto, a fantastic pizza place in the North End of Boston, but parking is much easier at La Cascia's, and they are open longer hours.

For those of you who need the address for La Cascia's Bakery, here it is: La Cascia's Bakery, 418 Main Street, Medford, MA 02155; the phone number is (781) 396-5041
