There’s a new pizza in an old pizza place. Lenny’s Pizza opened this week in the former Steven’s Pizza that used to be Frankie’s Pizza.
The exterior and interior are mostly the same. They haven’t even changed the sign yet.

The big change is it’s now kosher. That’s a big plus for Jews who keep kosher. It’s unclear how it will appeal to others.
The biggest thing non-kosher pizza eaters will notice is there are no meat toppings. No pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, etc.
They do have a lunch special – $5.50 for two cheese slices and a soda. The slices we got were positively huge. A couple could conceivably share this.

One of us had plain cheese (above). The other had one slice with tomatoes and the other with fresh garlic (extra cost).

I loved it, though the garlic was invisible. It still tasted good. The crust was very thin and had great texture. The menu says they use Yoshon flour, which has special significance to devout Jews.
My companion thought the pizza was just okay. She likes Brooklyn Boys better.
The soda is also different. Again this looks like an effort to be extremely kosher. We both had cola and it tasted just like Coke.

Ordering is different. There’s no wait staff. You go up to the counter and order and the soda is self serve. They did bring the pizza out to us when it was ready.

There was no Parmesan cheese on the table, which seemed a little odd.

We wonder how Lenny’s will do. Is there enough of a market of kosher eaters near 441 and Palmetto? We aren’t sure.
Here is the menu, which may be temporary.

We appreciate the irony of a Kosher restaurant in spittin’ distance from the supposedly anti-Semitic Hobby Lobby. But then we don’t believe that about Hobby Lobby anyway.

Speaking of Hobby Lobby, we took another peek inside. They have a long way to go.
