(Gillette, Wyo.) - CAUTION: This post will cause your mouth to water and may lead to some serious pizza cravings!
Pizza Carrello, located at 400 W 2nd Street in Gillette, WY, just launched their new summer menu and it looks INSANE! Everything is refreshing, vibrant and a little punchy! The Summer Crunch Strawberry Coleslaw utilizes their notorious wood-fired strawberry compote in a vinaigrette, features three different members of the cabbage family and fresh green onions. It's the perfect compliment to any pizza on the menu. "We love the slaw so much that we used it to make a new bbq chicken pizza, as well as a new bbq chicken wrap," explained Ariane.
Another new menu item, the Verde Veggie Pizza, is made with Pizza Carrello's homemade chipotle sauce, homemade green chili, heirloom tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, black olives, green onions, and topped with cilantro after cooking, served with a wedge of lime. "It is exciting for the palate, as well as the eyes," said Ariane. "It's a lot of layers of flavors for one pizza, something that is often missing in vegetarian options."
As for dessert, the Blueberry Lemon Love is where it's at! It's sweet and tart, with wood fired blueberries, lemon, sweet glaze and little bits of cream cheese! Also new to their dessert menu is the S'mores Pizza with Ghirardelli Chocolate, graham crackers, sweet glaze, and of course, marshmallows.
"We are pretty excited to see people's expressions when they try S'mores Pizza because we always see huge chocolatey smiles after the first bite, followed by camping stories," said Ariane. "You can't beat that kind of connection to people through food. For us it's the best part of the job, and the new summer menu is like putting on a picnic for our friends -- we can't wait to have everyone over to try everything!"
Pizza Carrello will begin their summer hours on Tuesday, May 31 and will be open Monday-Saturday 10am-10pm. Stop by for their new “Happy Hour” every day from 2-4pm where you can get a personal Pepperoni Pizza and a can of soda for only $5!
