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.
