Greek pizza. That is what is sold at the restaurant Colossus, located in a small strip off the main road in Tucker, Georgia. Greek pizza is good.
I can’t believe it took me so long to even realize that Colossus sold pizza. I knew when it first opened, but I’d known it to be a Greek restaurant, and I guess I didn’t think pizza with that. Walking into the restaurant for the first time, I was honestly a bit moved. It’s split up into two sections; both indoors, but because of the large garage door style windows, the first section still feels like outdoor seating. I really felt the Greek vibes in the decorating, with blue doors with white trim, lots of plants, and a lot of open space. I almost felt like I was on a beachfront restaurant- if it wasn’t for the cars going past outside the windows. The light wooded rustic doors was my favorite part.
Let’s talk about this Greek pizza. My dad and I split a medium – which in my opinion was quite large – and we picked the Colossus pizza (Ground beef, italian sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions & green peppers), minus the mushrooms. In the first bite I knew two things immediately. The meat was real meat and the cheese was not your average mozzarella. I’m not sure what cheese they use – I want to assume feta but I really don’t know – but whatever they’re using, it gives the pizza a taste that’s different than most pizzas you’ll eat. The crust is really fluffy, which I think can be seen not only in the thinness of it, but also in the very light brown, hardly toasted color it is.
I really enjoyed this pizza, it was a really new taste for me that brightened up a drab Tuesday evening. I would certainly go there again with friends and family for a nice dinner where we can all sit beside one of their garage windows and really get the full experience.
