Everyone we've talked to that has ever eaten at Lucky Slice Pizza in Ogden has raved about their delicious pizza, so we were excited when we were invited to try them out recently.
We spent quite awhile ogling the menu before discovering that due to numerous requests they have now added calzones to their menu just in time for Ogden's Restaurant Week, and ended up trying them out. They were so good! They currently have three flavor options: a meat lovers, a chicken alfredo and a veggie option.
The first combines pepperoni and sausage with mozzarella and ricotta cheeses baked with a marinara sauce. The chicken alfredo was filled with parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, roasted chicken, green onion and a garlic cream sauce. It was so rich and deliciously creamy that we went home with leftovers! The kids ended up getting their traditional pizza so we didn't end up trying the last option, but they told us it was a creamy spinach and mushroom florentine with mozzarella and roasted red peppers, which sounded equally good.
As a part of restaurant week they are offering a two course lunch for $10, which includes a calzone and a large crispie treat... a simple, basic dessert that took me back to my childhood.
We were so full we wrapped it up and took ours home and ate them over the course of the next couple days. Dinner comes with three courses for $17. Two calzones and either six bread sticks (served with marinara and ranch dipping sauces), dough puppies (a basket of fried dough balls coated with herbs and parmesan, also served with dipping sauce--these little guys were probably the reason we were too full to finish anything else! Oh my gosh, so good!) or zeppoles (fried dough balls with cinnamon and sugar and a carmel dipping sauce).
The kids stuck with what they were familiar with and ordered a pepperoni and cheese-less meat lovers pizza, which they inhaled!
Until recently our kids really hardly ever ate pizza, since half of them are allergic to milk, we just avoided it. Then within the past year we've discovered that they really enjoy a topping loaded pizza, just without any cheese and they constantly ask for pizza when we go out to eat. However, unlike most kids they actually care a lot about the quality of the sauce, the crust and the toppings, since they don't just bank on yummy cheese to make up for lack of quality. So I actually consider them to be pretty good critics and Lucky Slice has moved straight up to one of their top favorites!
