Applewood Inn Pizza / Menlo Park

Sandra | Mar 31, 2006 12:54 PM

Based on a co-worker's request, I tried their pizza - even though it was to go, I think that their pizzas were decent.

They are located on El Camino and Ravenswood in Menlo Park; they have 3 locations now, Los Altos, and 2 in Menlo Park (well, both are within site of each other)

I ordered a Medium - 1/2 Milano (spinach, portabella mushrooms, goat cheese, roasted peppers, fresh basil), and 1/2 Roma (peppered ham, mushrooms, bell peppers, fresh tomatoes) - I substituted the peppered ham with Italian sausage though.

I like thin crust - this one was medium, not too thick or too thin; it was good flavor, but it could've been a little more crispy (maybe it was in the box too long)

The toppings were decent - I likened the modified Roma to a Thai dish(!) where it's ground pork with bell peppers and basil, since the sausage was sprinkled finely (not chunky like I've had before) and the bell peppers were slices, not diced (good).
I liked it alot.

The other 1/2 was Milano, which was pretty good too (albeit vegetarian!) - the portabella mushrooms were slices and the goat cheese was complementary to the other toppings.

The pizza didn't have too much cheese (couldn't had more) or sauce (good; don't like too much tomato sauce) -
Overall, I would go back and try the pizza inhouse.
