Is there a better way to hang out with friends than over pizza and drinks? There’s something casually comforting about catching up over a few shared pies: you can sample different slices and gush over your favorite bites in between bits of personal news and gossip.

That’s why we were thrilled to attend a complimentary tasting at Post Scriptum Pizza Shop. Post Scriptum, or PS for short, specializes in thin-crusted pies holding creative topping combinations. Piles of arugula with prosciutto and lemon juice? Count us in. Chicken milanese and creamy gorgonzola? Two slices, please.

 

On a chilly weeknight, the WHA team ate our way through the menu, with all dishes brilliantly photographed by the talented-in-all-things-tasty Marielle Solan. Take a look, a just try to get through the post without craving pizza!

We started with the Risotto Balls. Oh man, these risotto balls hit the spot. They were cheesy, crunchy, and carb-y, with an awesome red sauce and fresh asiago cheese. Beginning with these foreshadowed that we were in for a good time.

The Baked Clams kept the good times rolling with a delicate butter lemon sauce and perfectly crunchy panko. If enjoying a little seafood before pizza sounds like a plan, definitely check this dish out.

As for the Arugula and Pear Salad, can you really go wrong with peppery arugula, asiago cheese, mushroom, pear, artichoke, and lavender dressing? Obviously not. This is a nice, clean start to a big meal.

But the real star of the evening was, unsurprisingly, the pizza. It wasn’t easy to highlight just a few favorites, but we’ve narrowed down the superstars for you.

One of the group’s favorites was the Godmother (included in the pie on the right) which is impressive in its simplicity. Fresh mozzarella, cheddar, red onion, scallion, and garlic may all sound like basic ingredients, but the combination was memorably tasty.

Another crowd-pleaser was the Godfather, in all its lemony goodness. Arugula, brussel sprouts, prosciutto, fontina cheese, and garlic top this satisfying slice.

Post Scriptum has lots of hearty options for vegetarians, and the Harvest pizza is a great example. Boasting pesto sauce, roasted green and red pepper, cherry tomatoes, red onions, mushrooms, and crescenza cheese, this pizza will definitely fill up even the hungriest meat-eaters.

The Tressa Bellissimo was not only beautiful to look at, (How Instagram-able is that photo?) it’s also a joy to eat. This mini pie was gobbled up in a matter of minutes. Combining lemony Chicken Milanese with soft gorgonzola, marina, and chili results in a slam-dunk pie.

Somehow, after all that pizza, we saved room for dessert. And good thing we did! We were presented with three sweet treats: a tiramisu, a filled doughnut, and a knockout funnel cake with ice cream. All three options are excellent, and a perfect way to end the meal.
