Love these gourmet personal-sized pizzas. Ingredients are fresh and often local. Only downside: pretty expensive for pizza. Personal-sized pie and a beer could run you $20. I often think its worth it :)

After our tip to Italy we have been searching for a good wood fired pizza...this one is yummy.
A bit thinner than weremember in Italy, but the cheese is so delicious and smooth.
We sat outside and could smell the great dough cooking in the oven. We were there on a sunday and it was very busy. The service was ok, friendly.... but not anytime for small talk...good thing the pizza is so good.
We had 5 people in our party...its hard to find room for lager parties here. But its nice and cozy just like in Italy. You can bring your own bottle of wine too. There are no drinks for kiddos except sodas....so bring your own milk or juice. There are a great choice of soda to choose from and a couple of beers, The nut brown draft was a great addition.
Please oder one pizza for each adult...just like they do in Italy!!!
love the black fired part of the crust!

The Pulled Punch ( pulled pork ) pizza is outstanding. The crust they use on all their pizzas is extremely good. The cook made a mistake but the server more than made up for it and made sure we were happy! Will definitely be going back soon!

This little hole in the wall joint has the best wood fired pizza in Knoxville and it is not far from a University of Tennessee football game in the "old money" area of town. I almost hate to share as seating is limited.

The menu for the pies are both traditional and creative...something for everyone including beers and rootbear on tap. The pizza...crispy crusts and fresh ingredients...gets me everytime! The customer service also makes for a great experience.

The owner began his venture by building a pizza oven in his backyard for friends/family to enjoy...you can read the rest of the story on the table. This is a must when you visit Knoxville.

Kudos to this new little joint!

Best pizza in Knoxville. Mini meatballs for appetizer were great, Rocky Balboa pizza was awesome. Pizza crust tastes authentic and the ingredients are obviously fresh and Italian sausage on the pizza great.
