The United States isn't the only place where Italian immigrants have made an indelible mark on the local cuisine. But while American pizza generally errs on the side of thin crust, notes USA Today, Argentinian pizza starts with "thick, bready crust" crowned with heaps of onions and cheese. The Carrera family's Buenos Aires Pizzeria, the newspaper continues, walks "a middle ground" with a hand-tossed, medium-sized crust. Flavored with housemade tomato sauce or olive oil, these pies arrive topped with everything from spinach and prosciutto to chorizo and mint leaves, an ideal ingredient for pizza you'd rather kiss than eat. In addition to nearly 40 specialty pizzas, the eatery accommodates diners of all stripes with customizable pies and gluten-free crust.
Pizza isn't the only thing the Carrera clan crafts by hand. Made from scratch, traditional and open-faced empanadas sport nearly 30 fillings, from butternut squash and carrot to a medley of bacon, cheese, and fig. For dessert, try over 35 gelato flavors?such as chocolate almond and mango?made in-house daily. While cooks work tirelessly in the open kitchen, bartenders serve wines hailing exclusively from Argentina, including four varieties of malbec.
Under the supervision of an experienced chef at Woody?s Tavern, crackling logs not only give pizza dough a crispy crunch, but also create complex, smoky flavors. Chefs top pizzas with specialty combinations, such as the California Dream's basil pesto and artichoke hearts or the Pep Pep Pepperoni's roasted poblanos and jalape?os, and use gluten-free crusts and big, round carrots for those with dietary restrictions. Customers can enjoy the slices by the pie or sample a variety at the shop?s featured all-you-can-eat salad, soup, and pizza bar. These dishes and their hearty half-pound burgers pair well with the 16 drafts on tap, award-winning wine, margaritas, and other cocktails from the bar.
