Hearth Pizza Tavern

The Setting:  Proving once again that good pizza can come from unlikely places, Hearth Pizza Tavern makes its home at the opposite end of a strip mall that holds a Whole Foods grocery.  They offer table, booth and bar seating indoors.  And, a small patio with tables is off to the side.  A wooden screen and huge red umbrellas protect diners from the nearby road.

The Staff:  Friendly

The Food:  Light, fluffy and delicate, this is everything I usually hate in a pizza crust.  But, somehow, Hearth Pizza Tavern takes these wonderful bread qualities and turn them into a pizza crust that really works.  Their pizza dough is made with 100% organic flour fortified with wheat germ for flavor.  Fire roasting is key to their success.

On two different visits, we’ve seen great consistency in four pizzas.  The high heat of a fired pizza oven adds good color and char to what could otherwise be a doughy mess when tomato sauce and toppings are added.  All four of the pizzas we’ve sampled have been delightfully crisp, a little chewy, and nicely charred with dark golden dough bubbles dotting the surface of the crust.

Current Favorites:

Ring of Fire:  Garlic chili oil, thin-sliced chorizo, pickled cherry peppers, caramelized onions and cremini mushrooms.

Custom Built:  Mozzarella, fontinella, roasted cremini mushrooms and caramelized onion.
