I've been ordering Papa Del's pizza for many years, but just recently I decided to throw some arancini from the appetizer menu into the mix. If you're not familiar, arancini are delightful balls of cheese and rice that are then breaded and deep fried. Papa Del's serves theirs with a slightly spicy romanesco sauce as well as a balsamic glaze, which is my favorite dipping option. 

The outside is crunchy, the inside is warm and gooey; they're delightful. I know that the pizza is very filling, and you probably don't need an appetizer, but it's worth it.
