Huntington Edition: Backyard Pizza

Backyard PizzaThe other place in Huntington that I was really excited to visit was Backyard Pizza. Unfortunately, their building caught fire and caused some damage to the restaurant, as well as another burger restaurant I was hoping to visit.

Backyard PizzaLuckily, Backyard was actually operating out of their food truck at the beer festival, so I got to try it.

They were offering three pies: the Woo-Tang, Memphis Olde, Chophouse, and Truffle Shuffle.

After consulting with my friend and others in line around me, I went for the Woo-Tang: hickory grilled chicken, bleu cheese crumbles, fresh shredded mozzarella, roasted red peppers, diced jalapeno and red onion. Finished with cilantro, drizzled with honey, Sriracha and lime schwing sauce.

Backyard PizzaOhhh my god. This was SO good. Salty, Smokey and sweet. And amazing. Everything was fresh, delicious and the flavors were perfectly complementary.

Backyard PizzaI especially loved the cilantro, lime and honey flavors. Just awesome. As soon as they reopen, I'll have to plan a trip back to Huntington.
