What Is This ‘Rhode Island-Style Pizza’ That’s Headed to Fort Collins?
Another bar/restaurant is on its way to the Old Town area, which will be serving pizza. That's not such a big deal, until you hear it's "Rhode Island-Style," and don't have any idea what that means.
There are a lot of pizza places to enjoy in Fort Collins, with many different styles. Beau Jo's stands out as offering their classic "Colorado-Style" pies. You may have heard of "New York-Style" pizza, where you are encouraged to fold your slice. Another east coast style is making its way to the Choice City, are we ready?
It's really good news for the Old Town area, as the corner of Mountain and Mathews/Walnut (where Goodyear stood for so many years) is finally getting renovations done. One of the new businesses, according to The Coloradoan, is a restaurant/bar that will be family friendly, where you can gather for dinner or watching sports.
This is going to be great location for Fieldhouse @ The Fort, just off of Old Town, but still in the heart of Downtown. One of the menu items that they highlight, is their pizza. What stands out about their pizza is that its "Rhode Island-Style;" the term caught me by surprise, and I thought it might strike others as out of the ordinary.
WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT "RHODE ISLAND-STYLE" PIZZA:
- Most of the time, it's presented in long, rectangular slices, much like French bread pizza.
- They are not very cheesy.
In doing my research, many places that sell Rhode Island-Style pizza pride themselves on their sauces, their 'gravies,' more than anything; some places almost make their sauces a paste; not to say that's how Fieldhouse @ The Fort will roll, it's just a heads-up.
Either way, it'll be one more cool place to check out in the Old Town/Downtown area of Fort Collins.
