L was starting to get a little cranky and J really wanted to take a shower before going to bed.  I asked if she wanted to go on a little road trip.  J asked what I had in mind and I said pizza.

It was dinner time anyway and someone had just recommended a pizza place in Paw Paw to me.  L sleeps pretty good in her car seat so I knew the trip down I-94 would give J enough time to do what she wanted to do and I got pizza.  Win win.

Amore Pizza is on West Michigan Avenue just to the west of the downtown business district.  I put in our order for an 18″ thin crust pizza from home and by the time I got to the small store, it was ready.

The restaurant is a full service, sit down joint with a pretty typical Italian restaurant decor.  The paint scheme is the same as an Italian flag and the table cloths were the red and white checkered ones you see at a lot of pizza joints. 

I went in the side door from the small parking lot and found the kitchen counter.  I set L, who was still passed out, down on the floor and gave the lady working my name.  She headed back into the kitchen to pick up a huge box while I filled out the credit card slip.  The X-Large pizza cost me just over $11.

While the typical pizza from Amore is a hand tossed, we opted for the thin crust.  The pizza is a hand stretched dough with a slightly tangy sauce.  The cheese was very golden brown, but not at all greasy.  I got pepperoni on my half while J stuck with plain cheese.

The pizza was cut in to long triangles which were easily folded NY style.  The handle on the crust had a nice snap to it, but the as you got further into the pizza, the crust got softer.

We both liked the pizza from Amore and didn’t have much of a problem putting it down.  The large size gave us a few extra slices each for a midnight snack/breakfast.

Amore is a great small town pizza joint.  When some people move to a new town, they look for a bar to call home.  I always look for a go-to pizza place.  If I was moving to Paw Paw, Amore would be that pizza place.
