Pizza Factory review

  If you've ever looked over the menu at Dayton's Original Pizza Factory, you'll probably notice the variety.  They have a Reuben pizza, seafood pizza, whole wheat crusts, and nearly 40 toppings you can choose from, including 6 different cheeses.

  If you think that a pizza place that offers a choice between green and black olives is great, how about broccoli, pickles and lamb as options?

  We tried the Greek Gyro with double lamb, double feta cheese, onion, black olives, tomato and hand tossed crust.  Since it was buy 1 get 1 free Monday, we also got a Seafood Blanc with whole wheat crust, shrimp, imitation crab, with a bit of tomato and onion and some cheddar added.

  I'll have to say that of the two, we enjoyed the Greek Gyro pizza the most, and I enjoyed the feta cheese taste quite a bit, and the lamb. (probably because I grew up raising sheep for 4-H, and we had lamb several times a year)  I'd score it a 9/10 overall.  The Seafood Blanc pizza fared less well, and we had quite a bit left over.  I'm not sure if it was the onion, imitation crab, or exactly what.  All I could tell was that it simply had a somewhat strong fishy taste to it, and that's saying something considering that I like to eat canned fish occcasionally, and sheepshead (freshwater drum) caught from Lake Erie.  I think I might have preferred a seafood pizza with clams, fire roasted shrimp some scallops and oyster sauce.

  Overall, I would definitely suggest giving the place a try if you're tired of pizza the same old, same old way.  It's clear they are using quality ingredients, and they are really offering some unique combinations.

Note: take advantage of their Buy 1 get 1 free deal (for pickup) on Mondays!
