Pepperoni Roll at Mama Mia's Italian Restaurant and Pizzaria in Deep Ellum
Gut Bomb Alert! Gut Bomb Alert!
Pizza, calzone, stromboli...what's the big deal? We all know that those things are not good for you in the extreme, why pick one over all of the others? Because, my health food eating friends, this one caused me more gastrointestinal distress than any pizza resembling object that any that I have eaten in quite some time.
Mama Mias is the kind of restaurant that is guaranteed success in an area packed with bars, clubs and drunks. Cheap, dense, booze soaking food is just what you need at 2:00 in the morning after an evening of debauchery, and Mama Mia's is open until 3:00 on Friday and Saturday to cater to the staggering masses. Their traditional New York style hand tossed pizzas are really quite good with the ingredients tasting like everyone else's that buys from Ben E. Keith. Good, but not exceptional. Decent pastas and not too bad sandwiches round out the selection of Italianate offerings that every drunk requires.
