Details

  • Lunch, Dinner
This, among the latest pizza places to join the local pack, comes to the Valley by way of northern California and has two sister restaurants in the Bay Area. In addition to pies large and small, Neapolitan and deep-dish, Forge offers a selection of starters, soups, and salads, and three non-pizza entrées. Crispy cheese curds are light, slightly spiced batter around mozzarella balls, served with a side of long-simmered tomato sauce for dipping. The fried chicken sandwich features a chicken thigh covered in a light and crunchy batter served with Calabrian aioli and lettuce on a toasted bun. Best pies include the cauliflower pizza, which features hunks of cauliflower with pistachio pesto, leeks, Gruyere cheese, and a generous helping of baby arugula. Eat yours inside or on the spacious and very comfortable patio at Forge Pizza.
