Church St. Pizza (Part 3)

(Original Review -- May 2011 (previous management))
(Second Review -- January 2012 -- Demitri now owner)
(Fourth Review -- March 2012)

I made a return trip to Church St. Pizza a few weeks ago, having been impressed on the last visit.

The chef's special on January 26 was a pizza containing figs, caramelized shallots, prosciutto, and goat cheese on a pomodoro leone sauce. After my slice went back in the oven to heat up for a few minutes, I noshed away. The blissful sweet-savory nature of this slice blew my mind. I didn't care if I burned the roof of my mouth several times eating this. Yeah, the top of the pizza was a little greasy from the ingredients. Just needed to dab the slice with a napkin and then throw my face in there. Yum.

I bought an extra slice to give to my friend, and she also loved it. If you get two slices on your visit, it's only $5.25 total. Pretty good deal, but not as good as the "$10 Tuesdays." Yup, an 18" pie from the regular menu for $10. That's just insanely awesome. Good to know if I go on a pizza bender and want to consume over 5,000 calories.

Menu on 1/26/12
Figs, Caramelized Shallots, Prosciutto, and Goat Cheese
The base is house-made Pomodoro Leone Sauce

My glorious slice after coming out of the pizza oven!
In the future, I'll try some more slices, preferably ones that are much spicier. The new Church St. Pizza team has convinced me they can produce great pies not found in just any pizza place. If they can nail it with a real spicy pie (maybe even like the El Jefe Pizza at Fire on the Mountain), then I'm sold.
