Located in the first floor of the Findlay Commons lies a small eatery that is widely known to the Freshman Population as the Big O. Their menu consists of several different types of pizza, a few different submarine sandwiches and chicken tenders and fries. They also have a small breakfast option but this review will be focused on their lunch/dinner options.
They have 4 types of pizza’s served daily consisting of: Pepperoni, Cheese, Buffalo Chicken, and White. They also have 5 different specialty pizza’s each served a different day of the week. Today (Thursday) their specialty was a barbecue chicken pizza. I decided to grab one for research purposes.
The first thing to judge when eating a pizza is their crust. What kind of crust did they use? Is it Deep Dish or Thin Crust? This particular pizza had a hand-tossed thin crust, almost reminiscent of the New York Style. After taking the first bite, I realized that the Big O was a place I could regularly come to. The first bite consisted of an abundance of flavors, harmonizing together to create the perfect combination. The smoky, tangy barbecue sauce paired well with the thinly sliced red onions creating a sweet, spicy, and robust flavor. This paired well with the Chicken breast which were sliced into chunks. There were 2 different types of cheese that were layered on top of the pizza, cheddar and mozzarella. There was no distinct way of telling apart the types of cheeses as they tasted the same.
All in all I give the Big Onion’s Barbecue Chicken Pizza a 4/5.
