Lucky Duck Pizza is located a few doors down from the Kroger grocery store on M-59 & Crescent Lk Rd. I was picking up a few things at the store and was going to head home. I saw the sign for $0.99 slices of pizza and thought I’d give it a shot.
The place is fairly small (no large parties/gatherings will be had here) but is very clean and bright.
It was about 1pm or 2pm on a Saturday afternoon and the place was empty. The owner (?) came out just before my slice was finished and cut up a new pie for slices and wished me a good day and that he hoped to see me come back soon.
As I was waiting for my slice, they reheated it with their quick toaster/heater that I imagine they use on subs to make the cheese melt. Wrapped in foil and served with a few napkins and a menu/flier I was given a wish for a good day and a hope that I would return.
Once in my car I took a look at my slice and was surprised to see the old-style pepperoni that tends to curl up as it’s cooked. This means more grease but napkins are a wonderful thing. A few blots and the grease was pretty much gone and I took my first bite.
The crust was thin and very crisp . . . something I had been searching for, for along time (I’ve become disenchanted with pizza in Waterford) and this was good. The cheese had a fantastic taste, I think it was very fresh. The sauce was pretty decent but the pepperoni . . . wow. It brought back memories! [There used to be that little, hole in the wall pizza place at The Mall (Summit Place) that served New York Style pizza with the little round pepperonis . . . this Lucky Duck Pizza brought back those memories for me.] A little bite to the pepperoni but not too much and then with that cheese and the thin & crisp crust. Just wonderful.
If a reheated slice was this good for me, I can only imagine what a fresh pizza would taste like.
I will be going back to try a fresh pizza.
