National Pizza Month

5 Pies to Try

There’s no time like pizza time and in October, which proudly holds the title of National Pizza Month, it’s always time to indulge in a pie. Check out these local pizza joints to get your fill.

Margherita Pizza

The Margherita Pizza is said to have first been made in the late 1800s for Queen Margherita when she visited Naples. Whether that story is true or not might be debated, but there’s no question that the colors of the Italian flag (green basil, white mozzarella, and red sauce) make a pizza worth trying. Stop by David’s Pizza to sample this simple pizza done right.

Pesto Combo Pizza

Red sauce isn’t the only option when it comes to everyone’s favorite Friday night food, and nothing tastes quite like a pizza smothered in pesto. Rick’s takes this tasty twist head on with mushrooms, olives, artichoke hearts, and fresh garlic atop a flavorful pesto sauce and crisp crust. Be sure to order a large so there’s enough to go around.

Caprese Pizza

It only makes sense that combining a crowd favorite like caprese salad with pizza is going to result in an ooey, gooey, cheesy, and—most importantly—mouthwateringly delicious meal. The Caprese Pizza at Michael’s Pizza takes this classic flavor combo to a new level with thick rounds of tomatoes topped with a generous portion of fresh basil and drizzled in balsamic vinegar.

Tandoori Barbeque Chicken Pizza

We can almost guarantee you’ve never had a pizza like this before. Tandoori Pizza specializes in cuisine fusion pizzas and offers options like the Malai Paneer, which gets its name from the use of both malai (a dairy-based ingredient used in Indian cooking) and paneer (a type of fresh cheese), or the Curry Veggie Delight. But the real showstopper is the popular Tandoori Barbeque Chicken. With a spicy barbecue sauce, this pizza is loaded with mozzarella, red onions, and barbeque chicken.
