Reporter Food: Green Lantern Pizza

Reporter Food: Green Lantern Pizza 

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Dec. 19, 2016)

Madison Heights, MI – I’ve been told that Green Lantern pizza is a classic, and they have certainly won many awards.  So it seemed right to give it a try for myself.

I indulged in a pizza with green olives and feta, which was decently cheesy and greasy.  On the side I got Candy Coated Bacon Strips. These are “Skewered Bacon Strips with Caramelized Brown Sugar, Barbecued with a Hint of Cayenne Pepper.”

According to their website, “Making pizza is a family tradition that goes back 55 years when Thomas and Irene Vettraino bought an old farmhouse bar along with its green lantern. They passed along their savory pizza recipe to their daughter, Marlene, who is the present owner. She, along with everyone here, works hard to ensure that every pizza pie is a culinary delight made with love that leaves a lasting impression from the very first, mouth-watering bite.”

I am a pizza fan, and Green Lantern is definitely now on my list of favorites.
