Think crisp-crusted pizzas liberally doused with red onions, green peppers, sausage, mushrooms, and whatever else your heart desires; by the pie or by the slice, the emphasis is on made-to-order munc. The Scene: Forget Pizza Hut, Papa John's and Domino's. When you and your party crave a homegrown pizza pie, the Memphis Pizza Cafe is ready to take your order. Along with pizza, the restaurants also offer sandwiches and salads. The beer flows but so does the cigarette smoke inside these casual pizza parlors; if smoke bothers you, consider yourself forewarned. Other cafe locations are at 5061 Park Avenue, 38117 (684-1306); and 7604 W. Farmington, Germantown, 38138 (753-2218).
If you order one thing: It's amore! Go for the pizza.
