Once in awhile, we’ll just make impromptu dinner plans, in the neighborhood. While our usual go-to takeout pizza joint is Lazaro’s, we wanted to dine in. So on a particularly lovely day, we took a nice little walk to Nomad Pizza. It’s a nice spot with plenty of seating, including al fresco. There’s a large upstairs where they sometimes show movies! It seems quite family-friendly, as we saw many there, along with pets at the outdoor tables. We got the spicy soppressata pizza. We loved it! It comes with italian tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, spicy soppressato (der), oregano, garlic, red pepper flakes, parmesan, honey, and sea salt. Yep, you read that right – honey! And it was awesome. There’s so many different tastes going on in this pizza, with the spiciness of the salami, the sweetness of the honey, the savory flavors of the basil, cheese, and other spices. And I wouldn’t change a thing!
We figured we might need a little bit of veggies too, so we also got a bleu cheese salad of mixed greens, roasted pecans, roasted pears, dried cranberries, and maytag crumbled bleu cheese in a house balsamic vinaigrette. This was great too, and it made me think I was being “healthy”. Anything to make me think I’m counteracting the pizza.
The service was good, however, I think they forgot about our pizza or our order got initially lost. There were so many tables who got their pizza before us, who came in and ordered way after us. And we waited an awfully long time for the pizza. And they apologized to us about the wait. We didn’t care though, at least not this time. We enjoyed the salad and then enjoyed our time together waiting for the tasty pizza.
