Latest Anna's Pizzeria news and reviews
Brandy, JM, Mark, Nichole ate the Works pizza, cheese bread, garlic bread, and three sodas.
The bill was $32, or $8/person, plus tip (thanks, guys!)
Brandy, JM, Mark, and Nichole gave Anna's Pizzeria an A- (see our grading rubric).
First things first: walking into Anna's is like walking into someone's basement. It's paneled, dark, there's a TV on in the corner with a pile of VHS tapes (?!) stacked up next to it, and there are 3 black Naugahyde stools set up at the small, dimly-lit bar. Anna's keeps weird hours, the menu is hard to read, and they don't take credit.
You should still go.
Here's the thing: this pizza is great. At the server's recommendation, we got the Works with pepperoni, sausage, bacon, green peppers, onion, and mushrooms. The crust was light and bready, thin but not crackery. A sweet made-from-scratch sauce held everything together. As if by divine intervention, the 16 inch pie did not sog out even in the middle after 20 minutes. The combination of toppings on the Works was delightful, but Brandy pointed out that it was really the smoky bacon that really made this pie. JM was very much in favor of the sausage as well.
The garlic and cheese breads we tried were just rounds of light Italian run under a broiler. They were great for staving off a toddler meltdown, however, and may have been even better if they'd been served with a side of red sauce.
After the meal Mark said he kind of felt like Anthony Bourdain dining on the finest foods in the most unlikely of places. Plus, we think local WKOW celeb Jake Zimmerman dined one table over. You can't argue with success.
When we've discussed Anna's with other SP natives, those who've tried it are in favor. That many haven't even tried Anna's is a shame because Sun Prairie has a real treasure here.
