Every once in a while after all the eating we Food Dudes do, we sometimes like to switch things up a bit and try something healthy. Or a better way to put it, less calorie packed. I am a marathon runner and have been eating healthy for some time now, and when it was suggested that I go to Capri Pizza in Ossining, NY, I felt like I was being misunderstood.
I was out with my lady and her friend and they were both looking for something quick and good. She was told by a work friend that Capri Pizza was a good place to check out. They were very friendly with fast service, good food, and very were well priced. I love to find all those qualities in a place to eat.
Capri Pizza looks like your standard pizza joint. It’s a store front in a strip mall with neon lights flashing in the windows. Even the inside has that standard pizza joint look and the to-die-for pizza aroma that fills the place. I couldn’t quite figure out what it was, but I knew that this place had something different about it.
We were seated in the middle of the dining area and handed our menus. I wanted to stick with a healthy eating theme so I decided to go for something other than my usual burger or pizza. I was also trying to keep away from carbs so that ruled out and pasta. Of all the menu options, I ordered the turkey avocado wrap. This wrap consisted of turkey, avocado, bacon, provolone and a homemade creamy balsamic dressing but I couldn’t help it and I had to order some fries as well. I mean you have to have fries if you have any kind of wrap. It’s like a law. This was one hell of a wrap might I add. They didn’t skimp on the bacon either and I am a bacon lover to the extreme. The turkey and avocado was fresh as can be too and the fries were pretty basic but they came out hot and fresh.
My girlfriend went with what seemed like more of an upscale dish, the Penne alla Capri. It was appealing to the eye as well as the taste buds. Now I don’t normally review what someone else gets, but because I had some of her food too, I had to include this dish. It was penne with grilled chicken, broccoli, and sun-dried tomatoes in garlic and oil. So me avoiding carbs went right out the window, but that was OK. I only had a few bites, but those few bites are still in my mind and still echo. I can honestly say that her dish was better than mine, yet mine was still an incredible wrap.
Capri Pizza is a great place to stop by for a quick bite or a sit down and dine-in. They have what I believe to be the biggest menu for a pizza place. Possibly even a ridiculous amount of selections, but they all seem unique in their own way and possibly taste good too but you have to give it a shot!
