CHEF’S DESCRIPTION: An amazing combination of simple but savory flavors, this pizza is inspired by basic ingredients of classic Italian cuisine, including olive oil with garlic and Italian herbs, fresh Roma tomatoes, red onion, pepper jack, provolone and mozzarella cheeses and fresh basil. The hearthstone oven-baked house-made dough is brushed with a premium garlic and herbed olive oil. Together, the trio of cheeses and the roasted chicken combine for tremendous texture. Pizza is finished with a drizzle of balsamic reduction.

Menu Price: $13.99, regular menu item
