Back in March, my family was invited to attend the pre-grand opening of Cucinova in Dublin, Ohio. Upon entry, there was a sign stating “Pizza, Pasta or Salad $7.99″ Then. you head straight to the counter to place your order. All pizzas, pastas and salads are custom orders. All of us opted for the pizza (10” pizza each). (It smells so good, right??) Once you order the pizza, you then have your choice of red or pesto sauce on your pizza. All of us opted for red sauce on the pizza. After that, we had to decide on which cheese: mozzarella, fresh mozzarella slices, feta, and fontina. Everyone in the family chose mozzarella and I chose fresh mozzarella slices. Next up was toppings! My youngest chose nothing (no shocker there), middle child chose red onions and banana pepper rings, my oldest chose pepperoni and Italian sausage. (My husband ordered the same thing as my oldest kid!) I ordered a pizza with mushrooms, red onion and banana pepper rings.
After everyone ordered, our pizzas were put into wood fired oven and we ordered our drinks. (There are soft drinks, including wine and beer) We were given a number and we waited for our number to be called once our pizzas were ready. The kids pizzas were ready first and they all said “the pizza is really good.” Once the adult pizzas were done, we were ready to eat! The first thing my husband said was “wow the crust is really good” and I took a bite of my pizza and thought the same thing! All of the ingredients are fresh and I almost ate the whole pizza! We did have leftovers and we were given a box to take home with us!
We loved it and returned within a few weeks back to Dublin (we all ordered pizzas again!). (This time I tried pesto sauce on half of it…I still love the red sauce!) We have not been back since because it is a bit of a hike from our house to Dublin. LUCKY for us there is Cucinova opening in Westerville on June 30th! (I just wish they would offer bigger pie sizes because I would order this pizza for takeout for the family because the crust is the BEST!)
