When you go to Angelo’s, you need to get the “Upside Down Jawn.” It’s thick, square, and so big you’ll need at least a few people if you want to finish it. This pizza has layer of cheese buried beneath a mountain of tomato sauce that produces something like a Detroit-style pie. You can order it in the store or call ahead and pick it up, but either way you’ll have to pay cash. There are other pizza options as well, like the spicy Diavlo and the Big Lou with sweet sausage and onions, but nothing beats the Upside Down Jawn.
