    From the folks who own Pizza Fried Chicken Ice Cream in Bridgeport, Kim's Uncle Pizza has been open a couple weeks - and it is now IMHO the best pizza in the area. Their one size only (16") tavern thin crust bakes in a 1954 Fauld's oven. They cold ferment their dough. Cracker thin with great texture, a minimalist sprinkling of cheese, and zesty sauce, I would have no problem ordering a plain cheese pizza...something I have only done a handful of times. No sausage on my pizza? This pizza could actually help me lose weight!

    Just reporting that link is safe, and, still, the most suspicious non-spam URL I have ever seen, as if coded by Wile E. Coyote.

    Pizza looks great and will be on my shortlist. Thanks for sharing.

    “The last owner, not the original owner, was a Korean woman named Kim,” said Cecily Federighi, one of the new owners. “She had been running the restaurant basically by herself for the last few years, through COVID and everything, and was just ready to retire.”

    Kim Sinclair originally bought the business in 1971. She’s lifelong friends with fellow Korean American woman business owner Maria Marszewski, the namesake and founder of Maria’s Packaged Goods and Community Bar. Her son, Ed Marszewski, the Bridgeport-based entrepreneur, worked as a teenager at Uncle Pete’s, which he bought with E.F. Pizza in late 2020. The brand once known as Eat Free Pizza was created by Federighi, her husband Billy Federighi, and their business partner Brad Shorten.

    I've wanted to try PFCIC for a while but haven't been able to. I should have an easier time getting to Kim's Uncle. By the way, you actually will have a much better chance to lose weight if you do have the sausage (extra even) and go easy or no cheese on your pizzas. Although it's the dough that is the bigger problem. :wink:

    I really wanted to like this pizza in light of Louisa Chu’s rave review. However, we were disappointed.

    Let me first state that I’m an East Coaster and not the greatest fan of Chicago tavern-style thin crust pizza. However, I have eaten enough of it to know good pies from bad. The crust was much too crackery - it reminded me more of a large fried and flavorless flour tortilla than any sort of pizza crust. The sauce was too cloyingly sweet for my palate. Nevertheless, the sausage was tasty.

    Maybe this was an off night. I’m willing to give them one more try.
