Old Forge, PA: Pizza Capital of the World?
If we had to guess the pizza capital of the world, we may suggest somewhere in Italy, or maybe New York City. Ask a resident of Old Forge, Pennsylvania, and they'd say we were wrong. The pizza in Old Forge however, is completely different from the pie you'd expect (and don't call it pie, either -- it's a tray), so perhaps it is a pizza capital in its own right.
But what really seems to distinguish Old Forge pizza is a penchant for unusual cheese blends. Though different at each establishment, combinations range from classics like mozzarella, Parmesan, and Pecorino Romano to less common pizza cheeses like American and cheddar.
