Mama's Pizza

With so many pizza places to compete with, Mama’s Pizza sets itself apart with its crust, made from the restaurant’s special dough and baked in a brick oven to create the perfect combination of soft and crispy. It’s also brushed with melted garlic butter, which gives the restaurant an aroma that will make your mouth water.

Chimera Brewing Company

Sure, the Chimera name boasts its brews, which are made on the property, but thanks to Italian-born founding partner Carlo Galotto, the food is a worthy partner. Housemade dough and sauces are prepared daily before baking in a stone oven, creating incredibly flavorful thin-crust pizzas. The Diavola, with spicy salami and red pepper flakes, is, well, spicy. And delicious. Plus, beer and pizza is just a no brainer.
