I can't tell you how many times people come to me and say, "Oh my God - you HAVE to try XYZ!" I do love when it happens - it's how I have found some of my favorite spots in the city. So last week - my coworker Maria came to me with, "Oh my God - you have to try Strong's Pizza in Newport!"
Okay - now prepare yourself for an Awkward Coworker Photo - I have no idea why - but this photo makes me smile so much.
Strong's also has DESSERT pizza ($6.99)! What I loved about this was that it wasn't just the normal cinnamon streusel kind that you find most places. This was a brick oven pizza with white chocolate chips, powdered sugar and raspberry sauce!
This was DELICIOUS and very unique. I really liked this - though I only had one piece. So I would definitely recommend it - but with friends - because it is rich and sweet.
Why Should You Go? I like brick oven and I have to say - I don't know that I even have a "favorite" pizza place. The crust holds up a little better than Dewey's but might benefit from a dipping sauce. The table had mixed reactions and overall said the pizza was good but they weren't sure they felt the need to go back. That said - Maria loves it and will definitely be back! So - I think it's one you might have to try for yourself to make the final decision.
