Baton Rouge - Oscar's Ice Cream and Pizza Joint

Oscar's Pizza & Ice Cream on Urbanspoon

We had to bring kiddo a textbook he ordered from Amazon, so it made a good excuse to take him to lunch on Sunday. He chose Oscar's Pizza & Ice Cream, on Perkins, after hearing several friends rave about the sundaes. I figured, why not, how bad can any pizza be, if there's good ice cream in the offing?

No worries, the pizza was pretty good...

Southern Pecan, from Lazy Magnolia, in Mississippi. I pick this brew up regularly at the grocery, but it's so much nicer on tap!

The three of us split an order of meatballs as a starter. Didn't get a chance to take a pic--they got devoured too fast!

We each got calzones. Oscar's does 7" and 12" sizes, and all three of us got the smaller size. Mrs. YatPundit and kiddo both got just-pepperoni, but I got a specialty from the menu, the "Primo." It's ground italian sausage, caramelized onions, and pepperonicis. The sauce on the side was incredibly tasty, making for a great lunch.

Warm chocolate chip cookie sundae. That's two scoops of cookies-and-cream ice cream on the ends, and vanilla in the middle. It's not fair to say the pizza wasn't relevant, but it could have been a disaster and the trip would've been worth it. The fact that the calzones were all tasty means we'll be back to Oscar's.
