Can you think of a more perfect food than pizza?

We can’t, either. You’ve got all your food groups present. It’s equally delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner (we think). Depending on your mood, you can get quick, greasy takeout ‘za, or go the gourmet route with poached figs and fresh buffalo mozzarella on your pie. And here in Madison, it’s getting even better; the pizza options are delicious and diverse, spanning the cheesy spectrum and representing broader food movements like farm to table. It’s a pizza lover’s paradise out there, and we’re happy to help you chew through it.
