I had a craving for some really good pizza today, and I knew right where I was heading!
Babe’s Pizza in Brandon is home of the Double Decker Pizza. What’s a Double Decker pizza you ask? The Double Decker is a layers on layers of deliciousness, and Babe’s has been doing it for over 30 years.
Babe’s starts their Double Decker with a hand tossed dough, then comes the sauce, tons of toppings, another layer of dough, then more sauce, toppings and cheese, glorious cheese!
What I like about Babe’s is the freshness of their pizza. It wouldn’t matter that they make a double decker if it didn’t taste good. This isn’t some chain pizza joint giving you frozen dough and some thick tomato paste out of a can. Their flavor is excellent, with plenty of toppings, and just the right amount of sauce.
A pizza this thick takes a while to bake, (30 minutes) so make sure to allow yourself plenty of time if you’re eating in the restaurant. And, don’t expect anything fancy. This is an old school pizzeria with red booths, and plastic cups and dishes. But, this isn’t a place you go for the ambience. This is about the pizza!
I prefer to order my pizza to go.to avoid the long wait you can always find for people dining in. Here’s a tip: Even though the restaurant doesn’t open until 5:00, you can call your order in at 4:30, so it will be ready for you when they open. And, nothing is better than being handed a delicious Babe’s Pizza with a friendly smile.
