A spokesperson says, “ the Upper crust – forget the tiresome Chicago – N.Y. debate: we are going for what’s the best all around, ‘Custom Pizza’ in town, and you’ll be surprised at what we found. Sawdust covered floors and exposed kitchen, so you can watch cooks throw the dough in the air while you wait. The pizza is lovely – thin, crisp, herby tomato sauce with just the right amount of seasoning and it’s very cheesy. We like fresh mushrooms, pepperoni and sausage, delicious and liberally applied. Notice the wall-to-wall appreciation plaques; the owners sponsor soccer teams, baseball, softball and other sports teams." “Celebrities love their food, John Travolta tried the pizza and loved it,” the spokesperson says. “Danny Trejo loves the pasta entrée and Robert Davie, the salads and subs.“  Come in and enjoy the finest cuisine and coziest atmosphere. Ask about their Sunday entertainment.
