Woodstone Market 

Did you know this creekside oasis makes a killer pizza lineup? At Woodstone Market, you can choose from local favorites like “The Veggie”, Pesto Chicken, or the good old Italian pizza. Or, you can get creative and have it your way, with fresh toppings of your choice.

The Gardens of Avila

Are flatbreads considered pizza? In this case, we are counting it! The Gardens of Avila features a delicious flatbread appetizer on their menu, complete tomato and pesto sauce, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese, finished with arugula, olive oil, and balsamic glaze. Yum!

Wood-fired pizza, oysters, and local wine. Now, that’s a trio made in culinary heaven. The new Shuck Shack has happily married the three and frequently hosts pop-ups with their friends over at Earth and Oven. Be sure to follow them on Instagram at @shuckshackavila to never miss an opportunity.
