You may have noticed that pizza is taken very seriously on G&M…because it’s one of our favorite items of food ever, haha. And I am lucky enough to have found that my coworkers are as into pizza as I am. I’m not sure how the idea sparked, or how it actually managed to come to fruition, but the gals of Hartford Prints! have created a delicious Pizza Club.
We are fortunate to get out early on the 2nd Friday of the month, so we thought it would be a perfect time to grab some za. We picked our spot, grabbed a beer and had a wonderful afternoon. The main gist of Pizza Club is to find all of the delicious pizza places in our area (and eat at all of them), and the only “rule” per say, is that the location has to have a gluten free pizza option for our coworker Kait.
We started off with Backstage Pizza in West Hartford Center.
I was the only person who had been in our group, but it had been awhile ago, so we decided to give it a shot. And it didn’t disappoint!
I ordered the BBQ chicken, Lauren ordered a white pizza with chicken, Nina ordered the Classic – which consisted of sausage, peppers and onions, and Kait got a gluten free margarita. We were very happy to see that their small was pretty much the perfect personal sized pizza (we were starving, so we finished them pretty quick haha).
We got a beer, chatted away and scarfed our pizza, overall it was a wonderful 1st Pizza Club meeting! The weather was amazing, we ate on the patio and there was some casual light music to set the mood. We all enjoyed our pizzas, and Kait was pleasantly surprised by the gluten free option (with gluten free beer as well!). Kait’s gluten free pizza below:
We’re giving Backstage pizza 3.5 stars!
We’re not quite sure where our next Pizza Club will bring us, but we’re already getting excited already. Do you guys have a favorite pizza place in the Hartford area? We’d love to hear about it!
