Artisan is appropriate. I love pizza but the crust I generally pass when it’s jus a basic dough. The Coal crust accentuates the toppings, so light and crispy. A pleasurable stop at Louisville.

Not my first choice for good "za" in Louisville but a close second. Very good little thin crust "artisan" pizzas from a coal fired oven. Fresh, tasty ingredients, friendly servers, decent wine. Not cheap given the portion sizes but very good and worth the price....More
