Pigs In Blankets @ Midway Pizza
The pizza is first-class at Midway, with a thicker crust than is the current vogue. That makes for a nice change of pace. But the dishes that excited me most here were the few appetizers, mostly made of pizza ingredients. These pigs in blankets–Italian sausage, cheese, and onions wrapped in pizza dough and baked–were much better than they sound. And were big enough to have me stuffed before the pizza came out.
