A Look at Pizzerias Across the U.S.
Southend | Venice Beach, California
“We are a local spot in the middle of beautiful Venice Beach. We stand out for our sourdough technique, our vibrant and large wine list by the glass, welcoming attitude and fresh products,” says owner Mario Vollera. “Trolleway pizza (name comes from a street in Venice) is a white pizza with four cheeses, including the Sottocenere (under-ash truffle-aged Venetian cheese). It’s topped with fresh wild arugula and truffle oil….my fans love it. It is a decadent truffle party — crispy and tasty. We serve a gold pizza called 24k, made with edible gold and foie gras, organic mushroom, white truffle and shaved black truffle. But the price of $101 doesn’t make it that popular. Still, my guests ask daily about it. We sell one or two a week, usually to four to five guests that share the cost.”
L’industrie Pizzeria | Brooklyn, New York
The Williamsburg spot loves to show off that gorgeous crumb structure and people rave about the pizzeria. Its cheese pizza was No. 79 on The Daily Meal’s list of 101 Best Pizzas in America. Its menu features over 30 red and white pies, as well as a variety of slices. The white pizza menu includes the Zola & Grapes with mozzarella, ricotta, gorgonzola, fresh grapes, Parmigiano and basil and the Farmer with crème fraiche, mozzarella, bacon, goat cheese and honey. The red pizza menu includes the New Yorker with tomato sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage, ricotta and garlic confit.
Adriatico’s New York Style Pizza | Columbus, Ohio
The tiny pizza joint that has been an Ohio State University staple for nearly 40 years was demolished to make way for a new and improved Adriatico’s with more seating, tons of televisions for Buckeye fans and asthetics like brick walls, an eye-catching mural and vintage photos. To please the sports bar crowd, the pizzeria offers apps, wings, subs, salads, zonis, pastas, gelato and 18 beers on draft. In addition to small, medium and large, the pizza menu offers the Buckeye 18-inch X 24 Sicilian pie and 10 specialty pies to choose from. The Chicken Pesto has chicken, tomato, spinach, onion, ricotta cheese and pesto sauce.
