A Look at Pizzerias Across America
3 Palms Pizzeria | Hudson, Ohio
3 Palms has a modern style, serving up Neapolitan pizza and baked goods. While the original Hudson location opened in 2012, 3 Palms has added a location in Pinecrest and Orange. “What makes 3 Palms stand out from the crowd is the authentic nature in everything we do. We use the finest ingredients in all of our recipes, and everything is created in an open concept where the customers can see their meal being prepared for them. We also have a full-service Italian bakery in our restaurant making fresh breads, desserts and gelato,” says Shawn Monday, principal and executive chef. A big hit is the Meatball Plates with choice of traditional, turkey and chicken, grass-fed lamb or vegetable and choice of San Marzano Tomato Marinara, Sunday Gravy, Wild Mushroom Gravy or Pistachio Pesto served with house ciabatta bread and house-made ricotta. The pizza menu includes the Formaggio Di Capra with local goat cheese, prosciotto di parma, fresh cherry tomatoes, basil, extra virgin olive oil and slivered garlic.
V Pizza | Jacksonville, FL
V Pizza had a big year in 2018. The pizza company expanded, opening its fifth location.
