Don’t miss the Royal Feast Pizza at Sir Pizza of Asheboro in Randolph County.
An enthusiastic online review of Sir Pizza says it all: “This is a pizza chain but different from most.” With a yellow-and-red crenellated awning adorned with theater marquee lights, a half-timber and half-concrete block exterior, spires atop the rampart on the roof, handsomely faux-stone walls, the Sir Pizza on North Fayetteville Street in Asheboro deserves to be on the National Register of Hysterical Places. And you can’t help but love it. The chain has been around since 1965, gaining particular success in North Carolina’s smaller cities because it provides tasty, value-priced pizza paired with generous servings. The crust, thin and ever-so-crunchy on the bottom, is carpet-bombed with toppings. I can never resist the Royal Feast, which has so much spicy sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and finely diced pepperoni that you can barely see the tomato sauce under it all. Add a salad, piled high with fresh tomatoes and smothered with garlicky, creamy Italian, and “That’s Amore,” Asheboro-style.
