Woody's Tap and Grill--A salad wrapped in a pizza inside a wood oven

Stuck away on a side street in Fenway, Woody’s Tap and Grill is a local’s favorite. Most appealing is its wood fired oven that warms the cold cockles of ones heart on any odd November night. With flames unmatched by even the fiery furnaces of hell, the oven glowed enticingly. We hovered towards it, like moths drawn flame, like Icarus flying towards the sun, but the kindly waitress ushered us past before we singed our coats.

Our hungry eyes scanned, the long winding beer and beverage list, but our search was cursory at best. We wanted the renowned wood fired pizza and nothing else would do. There is something special about wood fired pizza, with its daintily burnt crust, its bulbous mounded center and lingering smokiness.

We ordered the vegetable pizza (13.95) and got a pizza and salad to boot. Our zucchini, pepper, onion, tomato slice, red sauce pizza, was overflowing with a balsamic dressed greens. A traditionalist might balk at this creative twist, but us Palateers were enthralled by it.

Pizza and Salad to boot!
Bite of salad here, bite of pizza there. A perfect match. Though, if you are planning to bring home leftovers and then it is well advised that you eat the salad completely.
