Dear Slice: Sac's Place Follow-up

Yesterday, Chichi Wang asked for some advice on what to get at the coal-oven-havin' Sac's Place in Astoria. Today, she emails with a follow-up:

So we ended up getting the Mama's Special pie—the one with the San Marzano tomatoes.

Happy to report that there weren't any sogginess issues. Crust stayed dry on the bottom with a nice char; no gumminess in the middle. Can't beat San Marzano tomatoes. I could have used a bit more basil on top, but otherwise, a stellar pie.

Oh, also, cheese was good. Stayed melty for about the first half of the pie; even when the cheese solidified, it was still pleasantly soft rather than waxy or too chewy.

After the jump, the upskirt.
