It’s on College Avenue, it’s delicious and cheese is its main ingredient

on November 23, 2009

It rode on the back of a bike for a mile, it survived numerous left and right turns on the way to its final destination, and in the end this Zachary’s deep dish pizza loaded with spinach, mushrooms and cheese was well worth the wait.

Though the staff at Zachary’s on Sunday night wouldn’t allow OaklandNorth to take pictures of their restaurant interior or their delicious pizzas as they slid out of ovens and into cardboard to-go boxes, raising the obvious question of, “But why not?,” there was no denying how good this pizza looked. Dozens of people sat hunched over their plates smiling in silence as they forked their way through pie after pie. With turkey day on the horizon, let the record show that Oakland’s appetite for cheesy goodness goes unhindered.
