Hometown Pizza: Factory Special
Many, many years ago, there was a pizza joint located in Champlain Heights called Hometown Pizza that we’d often grab takeout from. The mom and pop shop left the area and we eventually forgot all about them. Recently, we noticed a Hometown Pizza that was located on 57th Ave and Knight Street so we decided to drop by and see if it was in fact the same place.
We didn’t see the former owner (guessing that ownership has changed hands over the years) but we did see a number of familiar items on the menu and decided to order the Factory Special pizza ($16.45 + $2 for added pineapple) which comes with ham, salami, pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, green peppers, cheese, and tomato sauce.
Service was fairly quick and the pizza came out in about 10-15 minutes. The interior of this pizza place is actually quite spacious but it’s fairly stark inside and we almost thought the place wasn’t even open. In addition to their regular pizza, pasta, and chicken wing offerings, they also had some East Indian items on their menu as well.
