Review: Rico’s Pizza – Lansing, IL

Date:1/17/2021 – take out
Type / Appearance:I know this is in IL, but it’s one block in, so technically, NWI for all intents and purposes. Packaged “old school” in a bag, on a piece of round cardboard. Pickup was easy. Again, typical of the region, improperly cut into squares, i.e. “checkerboard” cut. See my page on “The Proper Cut” here. Good looking pie. You could tell it was nice and crispy. For the record, if this place asked if you wanted pie-cut, I bet a lot of people would take them up on it. It’s the right kind of pizza to do that.
Dough:Good thickness, so not too thick, and cooked properly. It was a bit “ritz” cracker-ish, but okay.
Sauce:Good. Not too sweet, with good spices.
Cheese:Good cheese to sauce to crust ratio. Wasn’t a bland mix. I liked it.
Oil:It was a touch greasy, but that may be because it was 1/2 sausage.
Smell:Great-smelling pie.
Other:Good overall pizza.
Grade:B-
Comments:Given the exterior of this place, I didn’t expect much. But I liked it. It was better than “just ok”. I’d order again for sure.
