Destinations: Louisville, Kentucky

By Denise Greer



The artisan-style pizzeria is one of the newest shops in Louisville, but its mobile unit and catering business has been going strong since 2011. With an onsite mill, MozzaPi is meticulous about its sourdough crust and baked goods. Its small pizza menu features the Sweet Onion Marmalade (wood-fired Andouille sausage, bleu cheese, rosemary and bourbon cherries with a sweet onion base) and the Pesto & Arugula with Whipped Feta (homemade basil pesto, fresh arugula, whipped feta cheese, grape tomatoes and mozzarella).

Garage Bar

Passersby can’t miss this auto-service-garage- turned-pizzeria with a two-car collision art installation as a centerpiece in its huge outdoor space. That space also features ping pong, fire pits and faux grass, along with picnic and patio seating. Garage Bar serves wood-fired pizza, Southern specialties and a beverage program of craft beer, cocktails, wine and Kentucky bourbons. Its Neapolitan-style pies are naturally leavened, hand kneaded in small batches and feature local ingredients. The Housemade Pepperoni pizza is topped with cream, fior di latte, pickled jalapeño, spinach and shaved onion.

The Post

The Post thrives on being the neighborhood spot for pizza and beer. The pizzeria serves up New York-style whole pies and slices, subs, calzones, salads, sides and desserts. Its giant slice list consists of cheese, pepperoni or a rotating slice of the day. Each month, The Post debuts a monthly, limited-time-only pizza special, like the recent BBQ pizza featuring a local Feast BBQ restaurant’s pulled pork, pickles, onions and Feast’s bbq sauce. Whole pies come in 12-, 16- and 20-inch. The Riveter is topped with meatballs, banana peppers, basil and provolone. The White Flag has a garlic olive oil base with onion, spinach, roasted red pepper, ricotta and fresh basil.
