Roman Candle Pizzeria

Munchie style pizza
There are a lot of pizza joints in Madison. There are cheap chains, munchie-satiating crazy combination creators, and there are even a few that celebrate quality ingredients. Roman Candle falls under the latter category but takes it one step further, celebrating not only quality ingredients, but wherever possible local quality ingredients! There is a lot of fantastic stuff that is made right here in Wisconsin, with much of it coming from other Madison establishments, such as RP's Pasta Co.'s Alfredo and Pesto sauces; most of the meats and all of the cheeses are also locally sourced. I won't go quite so far as to say that this is a pizza that's actually good for you, but its definitely the closest I've ever seen!! There are lots of vegetarian options, and even a vegan option, all of which look appetizing even to the carnivores, so a very good place to go with veggie loving friends.

Halfway through this beauty
before I got around to taking a picture!
For this Every on Willy review, three of us split a 16" Professional and still had enough room to spare for Chocolate Shoppe ice cream. The Professional is a pizza that has a dedicated following, with some people becoming slightly obsessed about it. After trying it, I can see why! This 'za comes fully loaded with "Professional Sauce" (pesto and alfredo sauces mixed together), feta and house blend cheese, broccoli, bacon, green peppers, chicken, and a light sprinkling of jalapeno.

The ice cream came from Chocolate Shoppe, which has to be some of the best ice cream in the world. I went for the Mint Avalanche. All that minty and chocolaty cold goodness made me really wish summer would hurry up and get here!! The boys both got Heaps of Love, which is basically all the best things in ice cream: Oreos, brownies, cookie dough, caramel ripple, pecans and chocolate ripple!!
Best nutritional info ever.

So the next time you're craving pizza or ice cream, Roman Candle is the place to go on Willy St!
