I will start with this: Flying Saucer is AMAZING. You can get an 8 inch personal pizza however you want. Period. In-house, they have an intriguing space odyssey theme with multiple local taps to choose from. Or, you can get their pizza delivered to Black Raven Brewery down the street at no extra cost.
I ate over at the brewery and went with something on their menu, the Soylent Green. It comes with pesto, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, garlic, and pine nuts to top it off. You can get any pizza as a deep dish. Honestly, you have to go deep dish. The deep dish isn’t that deep, but is much better than the regular offering.
I love this pizza because I am a garlic junkie. The pesto combined with garlic makes this a garlic extravaganza! The sun-dried tomatoes give the pizza an extra dose of salt. The artichoke hearts show a creamier side of vegetables we don’t see that often in pizzas, while the pine nuts provide a crunch of bitterness.
Overall, this pairs nicely with beer…and literally everything else.
My rating: 4.5/5
