So I suggested we just drive north on Sawmill and look for the next pizza place and sure enough we found Cucinova.
When I entered the restaurant I was disappointed to find that it was like a "cafeteria" or like Chipotles. There is no wait staff - you go through a line and design your own. The sign on the wall said: "made from scratch and your creativity." But we were here and hungry and gave it a try.
The problem with me is that I always get anxious because I don't know what to order. I followed a young woman and paid attention to what she was doing and so I ordered a very particular pizza - the sauce was a combination of basil pesto and garlic. I had two kinds of cheese - fresh mozzarella and fontina, and carmelized onion. We ordered a 10 inch pizza and split it and it was more than enough. We also ordered a salad to split and put in mushrooms, peppers, olives, croutons, cucumbers, and more. They also had "craft beer" so I ordered a flat tire and Chuck got a coke.
We went to sit in a booth and then they called my name. And it was delicious - a really great pizza!
It was - of course - hot and fresh and really flavorful. I think it was the pesto sauce that gave it that special something.
This is a chain and I would recommend it - especially for people who want to do it their way.!
