Today on the Bite Tonight: Supino’s
Located in Eastern Market, on Russell St. is Supino Pizzeria. With a wide array of specialty pizzas and creative options including the Supino (roasted garlic, black olives, chili oil, ricotta, mozzarella) and the Bismarck AKA “one egg” (fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, egg), Supino’s is really setting the bar high for local pizza joints. My favorite is the white pizza selections (no sauce) because, frankly, sometimes you just don’t feel like sauce. See how they ranked.

Since there was a Tiger’s game and seating was limited, Josh and I got a pie to go.
We went with a “create your own” pizza.
Pepperoni, roasted garlic, and red onions: The roasted garlic really shined through and added that extra “umph.” The sweetness of the onions and the zing from the pepperoni and sauce was delicious. I really enjoyed the thin crust which was cooked perfectly and had a slight chew and a crispy edge. A little more cheese would be really amp up the pizza.
For local places, Supino really brings the competition. They were super busy when I walked in, which only can mean good things. We went with the large (18 inch) and it was the biggest pizza box I ever carried. The fresh and creative toppings really set them apart from the boring options offered at their competition. I think my heart belongs to flavored crust, but we will definitely be back to try that fried egg on a pizza!
