While Avalon is known for thick crust pizzas, the pizzerias of this Seven Mile Island borough like to hedge their bets and make sure they keep their clients happy. They do that by offering two or three different types of pizza on their menus as well as the ever-popular thick crust. Other than thick crust, the most common types of pizzas featured on the menus of the pizzerias in Avalon are deep dish and Sicilian-style. Almost everyone across Europe and America has had a thick crust pizza at some time. Often just called pizza, it's the type of pie that's been around for centuries and has infiltrated the cuisine of just about every country on the planet almost as much as french fries have. From being just a rustic Italian dish, it's become part and parcel of millions of people's everyday life and who would want it to be any other way. Life without thick crust pizza just wouldn't be the same.
The borough of Avalon covers around five square miles.

Nemo's Pizza and Family Restaurant has a premises on Dune Drive that's squashed in among a row of stores and not easy to spot, but you'll still find it because the aroma of baking pizza will draw you in.

Don't forget to put it back when you get your pie though as the next customer in might like a read too.
Head away from Avalon and Seven Mile Island for the day and make a trip to Maurice River. Maurice River is twenty-two miles northwest of Avalon and bordered by the Belleplain State Forest as well as the Heislerville Wildlife Management Area.

You can find out all about ships and oysters in the Bayshore Center Museum before trying a seafood pizza at the Panzini Pizza House on Dehirsch Avenue.
Belleplain is a rural town twenty miles north of Avalon that is surrounded by the extensive acreage of the Belleplain State Forest.
