I travel to Provo regularly and am always looking for great meals. This place just became one of my top recommends. The food is amazing, the service is good, and they have a cute little patio surrounded by fresh herb planter boxes. Awesome al fresco dining.
First of all, don't let the idea that you're "going out for pizza' fool you. This is not your average pizza joint. The 'pizzas' are truly unique and satisfying culinary creations.
We had the gnocchi appetizer, which was incredible. The gnocchi were tender and succulent, tossed in a cheesy sauce with fresh herbs. This is eye-rolling, humming out loud delicious stuff, folks!
I also had the butter wedge salad--nice portion, tender butter lettuce topped with a really excellent blue cheese dressing, thin tart strands of pickled red onion, and crunchy sunflower seeds--not to mention blue cheese crumbles. Fresh and delicious.
But of course, the pizza was the real star. I had the roasted sweet corn pizza and asked them to substitute the goat cheese, which they did graciously, with ricotta. The crust had it's own yeasty flavor, and was bubbly and crisp and slightly charred (not too much!) from the oven. It was covered with rich, nutty parmesan, loads of roasted corn kernels that were fresh and sweet, studded with uber-thin slices of fresh chili peppers (which were hot!) and then generously dolloped with mounds of delicous, creamy ricotta. I could not believe how delicious this unusual combination was. So much flavor from the cheeses, the corn, and the chilis--I tried to eat the whole thing and just couldn't. It was flavorful, creamy, yet somehow light and fresh at the same time.
My dining companion had the housemade sausage and tomato sauce pizza. This was a nice complement to the corn pizza, although I found the homemade sauce slightly sweet to my taste--it was almost like a homemade ketchup kind of taste. Don't get me wrong, we are not talking Heinz here--lots of bold tomato flavor, with spices and a slight sweetness. The sausage was excellent--lean and well-seasoned--and the combination was terrific. However, for me personally, I'd have a hard time eating a whole pizza of those flavors, so getting to try both pizzas was perfect.
So with 2 pizzas, 2 glasses of wine each (yes, they serve wine from a small list), 1 appetizer and 1 salad, the bill with tax and tip was $93. That's kind of high for this area, but the quality of ingredients and the resulting dishes is top-notch, and if you subtract the price of wine (we probably should have done a bottle to start but ended up lingering on the patio and having a 2nd glass) probably represents close to 35% of the bill.
I would totally suggest visitng this with friends/others, so you can try the different pizzas and share them. I'm headed back with more friends next week.
