Let's be honest. It's hard to find good pizza in the Lehigh Valley. Especially if you've been spoiled by living in New York City--no one does pizza like the Italians. I know many people appreciate a slice from the average local pizza shop, but throughout my childhood, even prior to being exposed to the real deal, I found myself just tolerating it.
Although there is much to be thankful for about the Lehigh Valley Region, coming back and looking for a decent slice (which I prefer a thick, hearty crust--not too crispy but definitely not too flimsy) was an exception. However, we discovered a gem within walking distance from our home.
The small borough of Coopersburg is stacked with pizza shops, including "Pronto's", a local favorite. While there is nothing distinct about their regular pizza, I highly recommend their sicilian pizza. Sicilian pizza is a thick rectangular pizza, slices come in a square. While you pay more ($18/pie), it goes a long way, serving 12 generous slices.
Pronto's may have our vote for all-time best Sicilian we have experienced. What makes it distinct is the thick layer of cheese served under a large dollop of their red marinara sauce, with a sweet edge to it. We look forward to opportunities to share this pizza with friends and are quick to recommend it to area newcomers.
