A Look at Pizzerias from Around the U.S.
Juniper Pizza Café | Price, Utah
Juniper strives to balance ingredients’ flavors on every scratch-made menu item. There are a dozen pizzas on the menu. “The new favorite is our P3 pizza, which is a real labor of love,” Sherry Nehl says. “We make the barbecue sauce, pickled jalapeños, pickled red onion and pulled pork in our kitchen. We then top it with a little pineapple, provolone and mozzarella. The Chicken Pesto Panini is our best-selling item, overall. We use this gorgeous ciabatta bread, our own basil pesto, charbroiled chicken breast, cherry tomatoes, crumbled feta and mozzarella. I’ve made this sandwich for family and friends for years and cannot express the joy in seeing how loved it is at our restaurant.” Juniper has shifted with the restrictions of the COVID-19 crisis. “We transitioned to online ordering and contact-free delivery in two days,” Nehl says. “We use social media as an inexpensive marketing tool to keep our customers informed and showcase our efforts to keep our customers and staff safe, while also quickly adapting to new circumstances. We started offering pizza kits and, eventually, quaran”team” meal kits for families. Above all, we tried to display the love and care we always have for our small community.”
