www.thepizzakitchen.netHouse-manufactured products show up on a good deal of pizzeria menus across the state, but at The Pizza Kitchen, it isn’t just lip service. Just about anything from the marinara to appetizers like kalamata tapenade and meatballs is created from scratch. We haven’t observed anything like the chocolate peanut brittle cake: chocolate cake, layered with a chocolate ganache and topped with a peanut butter brittle product cheese icing. And of course –– it is home made, way too!

Scalini’s Pizza ‘n Pasta

www.scalinispizza.comThe pizza scene is heating up in Orlando, Florida, which is regarded more for its theme parks than its eating. At Scalini’s, on the other hand, it’s all about New York –– New York-fashion pizza, that is. The firm has a very simple menu of pizzas, pastas, salads and sandwiches. We especially like the Gondolini –– the Italian sausage roll is built with sweet sausage, peppers and mozzarella and is served with a facet of the company’s dwelling-made marinara.

Twist’d Sisters

293 Business Street

Provincetown, Massachusetts 02657

www.twistdsisters.comWhile the restaurant’s name originally drew our focus, this pizzeria is a lot more than just a really facial area. Hand-tossed dough, entire-milk mozzarella and a long listing of toppings set this pizzeria aside from its competitors. Even better, the New York-design and style pizzeria has named its pizza choices soon after New York destinations and sights. A standout is the Central Park. This salad pizza includes mixed greens, black olives, onions, tomatoes, Parmesan cheese and is fi nished with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Why travel to Manhattan when you get a style of it ideal below?
