Sunny Pizza opens across from USF near Boba House

The Foodies Club stopped by Sunny Pizza yesterday for a quick bite to eat. They recently opened next to the International “Boba House” on University Square Drive just minutes from campus and are accessible by the USF Bull Runner Route D.

We ordered two San Francisco sourdough slices. The sourdough gives the crust an extra sour tastes that is reminiscent of a bread bowl. The cheese and toppings featured quality ingredients and you can taste that they use fresh tomatoes in their base instead of typical marinara.

We also ordered a Jarritos Mandarin Soda. The total with the two slices was just $4.10 and Sunny’s currently has a deal for $1 slices as well as College Specials and delivers.

Sunny Pizza will be sponsoring us for our upcoming Foodies Club Meeting. Don’t miss it on Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 from 5:45PM-7:15PM in MSC3709.
