Lakeville Pizza Joint Serves Up Piping Hot ‘General Tso’ Pizza
In the small town of Lakeville is a popular pizza joint that dishes out unique menu items. If you've yet to try Baldies Craft Pizzeria on Main Street, this might entice you to give it a shot.
If there's one thing I can't get enough of, it's Chinese food and pizza. Thanks to Baldies, I was introduced to a mouth-watering fusion that blends together perfectly: the General Tso chicken pizza. Yes, this is a real thing and the world needs to know about it.
I was meeting up with an old friend to catch up on the time we've missed when I first noticed the unorthodox pizza on the menu, so of course I had to order it. The only regret I have is not taking a closer look at the rest of the menu since my heart was set on the General Tso, but other than that, it was a solid choice.
Within about 20 minutes, a piping hot pie was placed in front of me, still steaming from the pizza oven. Loaded up with that sweet and savory General Tso's sauce, meaty chunks of fried chicken, fresh broccoli florets, and roasted red peppers, it was a foodie's dream come true.
All it took was one bite and I was hooked.
The last time I fell in love with a pizza topping this delicious was when I gave a Mexican Street Corn specialty pizza a try in New Bedford.
This Baldies staple can be ordered and purchased throughout the day for lunch or dinner, dine-in or take-out, but is only offered in the brick-oven kiln at dinner time. During the day, all specialty pizzas are cooked in the restaurant's take-out oven due to the fact that the brick oven is only operated and used for dinner service.
One last thing, if you happen to see a bald guy with glasses working hard in the kitchen, that's the owner Michael Mastrangelo, a.k.a. "Mr. Baldie." He's a super-cool, down-to-earth, hard-working guy who not only loves what he does, but enjoys the company of his customers. I say 10 out of 10, would highly recommend.
*Pro tip: add crushed red pepper flakes to turn the heat up on the General Tso and thank me later.
