My journey started off with a cheese pizza – it was cheesier than the siren song of a pirate! Every bite was smothered in gooey, melty goodness that made my taste buds do the happy dance.

Their crust is among the best I’ve ever had. It’s just thick enough to hold all that deliciousness without being too bready, but still light and crispy in just the right places. And they definitely know how to cook their pizzas; there wasn’t a single slice that wasn’t evenly baked and full of flavor.

But what really sets The Gypsy Poet apart from all the other pizza restaurants in town isn’t just the quality of their pizza – it’s also the atmosphere. It’s run by an ex-poet who loves to spin yarns about her travels around the world, so you get some great stories while you wait for your food. Plus, they have live music on Tuesdays and Wednesday nights, making it one of my favorite places in town to grab a slice.
