Bacon Pizza @ Granite City Brewery

Friday, December 28, 2012 Review by Brian

IMAG0204

Joined a couple of my co-workers out to happy hour at Granite City Brewery. During the 4-6pm happy hour, all flat breads were only $4 – so I ordered one of each. The Peppered Bacon and Tomato pizza really stood out (for obvious reasons). The ‘sweeter’ taste of the tomato and cheese, against the spicy bacon was unreal.  I must also say that the bacon was cooked perfectly in little bit-sized bit. We ended up ordering another. This is a must try if you’re ever near Granite City Brewery.
