  11. Library example Pizza lovers, stay away from Rita's Pizza! I'm sorry to say that poor Rita hasn't the knack for making pizza. When I ate there, I had to wait 25 minutes for my pizza. The crust was mushy and the sauce tasted like tomato juice. The center of the pizza had too much oil on it and it dripped all over my hands and the table when I picked it up. Maybe I went there on a bad day. It just seemed like everything was lousy. The only good thing about Rita's Pizza was that it had a room with video games.
