Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Clam pie
$$, Outdoor Seating, Pizza, Full Bar, University South
"I love all of the pizzas but this one is my favorite by far. I add anchovies because I love the extra saltiness it adds. Of course, you have to add the dried chili flakes and oregano they give you on the side. I love to drink a glass of Verdicchio or a Mio Mao cocktail to pair with this pie."
