Finger Lakes Wood-Fired Pizzas
If you can stand the heat, the best meal to have in the Finger Lakes this summer comes right from the fire. A wheel of flame-flecked crust, lightly brushed with tomato sauce and olive oil, layered with fresh vegetables and dusted with grated cheese is the reward of anyone willing to get a few logs burning up to 1000º.
But for those of you who’d rather let someone else play pyromaniac, you are in luck. We’ve got quite a few places for you to get your wood-fired pizza fix on around the region. Check these places out during your travels; they’re using local ingredients like goat cheese, sausage, herbs and garlic, providing you with a pie hard to find anywhere else. Some of them serve local wines right alongside, making for the perfect meal on a hot night.
