While you could smell the pizzas from Spa City Pizza being delivered to area hotels or even to peckish fans at the race track, you'll most likely encounter it at the source. And that source is easy to find, not just by smell, but also thanks to its iconic location: the pink store in downtown Saratoga. There, the scent of classic and gluten-free pizzas sizzling in the brick oven mixes with the aromatic effects of herbs being mixed into the shop's Italian dishes and sandwiches. Chefs bake a full complement of dishes, ranging from Italian entrees all the way to their homemade desserts.?Indulge in fettuccine alfredo and baked ziti with meat sauce or enjoy a meatball parmesan sub with a side of curly fries. And for those who want pizza, they can choose from a selection of speciality pies such as chicken marsala, hawaiian, or buffalo chicken, or can create their own with a variety of toppings. There is one thing, however, you won't smell baking at the shop: bread. The staff instead chooses to turn to the experts at a local bakery to create the pizzeria's supply of fresh loaves of bread, grown and harvested daily.
