While on the way to our furthest destination, Birmingham, Alabama, we passed through Knoxville, Tennessee.
Knoxville was a good place for a pitstop to grab a bite to eat and take a break. It also just so happened to be home to a drive-in pizzeria, the Pizza Palace!
None of us have ever been to or even heard of a drive-in pizzeria before so we knew that we had to give Pizza Palace a try.We pulled into Pizza Palace on a rainy night. While the shop wasn’t too busy, there were other cars coming and going during our visit.I pulled into a spot and looked over the menu through the car window.After deciding on our order, we pressed the button on the menu box to order a Cheese Pizza and “Famous Spaghetti”.
This is what we saw when we opened the box.The pizza didn’t look great but we were ready to give it a try.After looking at the bottom of the crust, I didn’t feel any more confident that this would be good pizza.I picked up a slice, which felt on the heavier side and noticed just how cheesy this pizza was. There was also a good amount of grease which I could live without. The sauce was subtle and the slice had a decent saltiness to it. The crust, while not really crispy had a decent crunch on the edge.
Regardless, Pizza Palace got the job done. No, it wasn’t the best pizza but we’ve had far worse!
In the end, we all enjoyed this pizza in a weird way. I’d say that the overall experience of dining at a drive-in pizzeria really made this a fun time! (And just an FYI, Pizza Palace’s Famous Spaghetti was delicious, just be extremely careful eating it in your car!)
