I got one of the last of their Easter special pies, Eggcellent, which featured ghost pepper egg soufflé. The crust was doughy but also chewy as I like it. I honestly thought the ghost pepper would be over powering initially but all the flavors were super balanced. It was a truly unique and fresh flavor combination. Even though this is a special pizza that I am reviewing them on today.“ – Jen C.

Top Review: “Loved this place!. The whole menu looks awesome and we only had the pizza and cinnamon bites to start out with. The location is off the main corridor but not too far off of it. The crust was fantastic. It was crispy but chewy, just how I love it but it had a delicate crackle to it when I bit into it. They toppings were all tasty and well spaced and the service was friendly and helpful. I wish they had dine in options beyond the tables they have sitting on the sidewalk outside the door. Pizza like this deserves the full sit down restaurant experience. That being said, I can easily grab it and take it home or find a park to eat it in. Totally recommend and plan to be back often.” – Chris S.
