All Souls Pizza sources as much as they can locally, with care. The organic flours are grown in the region and naturally fermented in house with native yeast and all of the pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven. The produce is either certified organic or grown organically at local farms and they even have their very own garden on site. Everything is made from scratch, even the sausage, which is made from local pature-raised non-GMO pork. The mozzarella is made with milk from grass-fed cows. Gluten-Free options are available.
Although pizza is their specialty, there’s so much more to All Souls Pizza than just pizza. You’ll find unique and ever-changing appetizers such as soup of the day, fried okra, steamed artichoke, fermented chilies, and warm olives. Salads, sandwiches, desserts, and of course pizza. Traditional pizza crust and polenta pizza crust, which is their unique and delicious version of a gluten-free crust, are always available. Craft beer on tap, wine, and specialty drinks and sodas round out the menu.
What I Ordered
I ordered the Gluten-Free Polenta Pizza with crimini mushrooms, spinach, roasted garlic, red onion, mozzarella, and house-made sausage. The Golden Plum Pie was also calling my name, so I indulged. The ingenious Polenta Crust is a great substitute for the traditional crust, who would have thunk it? The texture is certainly different, but it has a nice crispness to it and it works. The toppings were outstanding, especially the tasty and tender sausage, dollops of mozzarella, roasted garlic, mushrooms…heck, all of it was outstanding. Every slice was a little piece of heaven, truly. The Plum Pie was delish as well. The crunchy crumb crust filled with a tart flan type consistency was inhaled on the spot.
We visited during Covid and therefore the inside was off-limits. I did peek in the window and was able to see a bar area and 2 separate rooms with tables for dining. The furnishings were simple with minimal decor; look like an easy-going place. Picnic tables equipped with umbrellas are set up in a nice patio along the side of the restaurant and around the garden area.
What an absolute delight it was to discover All Souls Pizza. They are a rarity as there are very few pizza makers who go to this extreme in ensuring locally sourced clean organic ingredients are used. All the while preparing those special ingredients in the best way possible, such as fermenting, and then cooking their creations in a wood-fired oven. Kudos to you All Souls Pizza, you are a master of clean pizza and true rock stars of the kitchen.
