Feast on a Sub at Northboro House of Pizza Near Avalon Orchards

You won't find a conveyor belt oven at most pizzerias—but Northboro House of Pizza isn't most pizzerias. This establishment near Avalon Orchards enlists the help of a slow-moving conveyor belt to ensure that its pies are perfectly crisp and bubbly after baking. According to its many favorable Yelp reviews, chefs hit the mark. Dig into a white pizza, a Mediterranean with grilled chicken and feta, or the Greek with sliced tomatoes and olives.

Pizza isn't your only option, though. Despite its name, Northboro House of Pizza actually has a more widespread reputation for its subs and grinders than its pies. Customers highly recommend all of the subs, and the options are plenty. Order the Italian sub stuffed with bologna, Genoa salami, cooked salami, and provolone cheese, or try the American sub stuffed with the ham instead of Genoa, American cheese instead of provolone, and then the same bologna and cooked salami as the Italian sandwich.
