Move over, Barley's!

There's a new best pizza place in Knoxville!

Hard Knox Pizza
Hard Knox Pizzeria on Urbanspoon
 Ok, sorry for the straight-up advertisement, but I really don't think enough people know about this place. It's located in the same plaza as Fresh Market on Kingston Pike. They make real deal, wood-fired pizza and have a fantastic menu. Andy & I rocked the Pastrano: a cream & mozzarella base with mozzarella, Italian roast sausage, caramelized garlic, thyme, rosemany, and parm and romano cheese. This thing was amazing and the crust was very good. I usually get upset when a pizza place doesn't offer something to dip the crust in but this crust was just fine completely naked. It was free cone day and Ben & Jerry's but if it wasn't I would have been completely tempted by their in-house gelato and I am still upset I didn't try an Italian soda. This place will be my Metro Pulse vote for best pizzeria this year for SURE!
