For anyone who has ever heard of Tony Palombino—the mastermind behind the art of pizza-making, not to mention winner of the World Pizza Cup in Italy who has garnished awards from the International Pizza Expo and gained Food Network recognition—you will certainly be excited about the new family-friendly neighborhood pizzeria in Gilbert, BoomBozz Pizza and Taphouse.
BoomBozz Pizza and Taphouse features delicious fare like Tony’s hand-crafted pizzas, plus small bites, soups, salads, calzones and pastas, with lunch combinations starting at just $6.99. The lunch, happy hour and dinner menus get more appetizing when set among the vibrant atmosphere of a taphouse equipped with a full bar and local and craft brews. On top of that, enjoy the large flat-screen TVs with broadcastings of all NBA and NCAA sports.
A must-try at the taphouse would be one of Tony’s “Famous Creations” pizzas, which include the award-winning Fire-Roasted Fajita, the Pollotate’, The Portobello Bello, The Tuscan Chicken, and named after his daughter, the D’Sienna. Or opt to make your own pizza on thin or wheat crust in medium and large sizes. Alongside the pizzas, take your time to feast on the array of pastas offered. To top off the meal, indulge with one of their desserts, including the One Hot Cookie topped with vanilla bean ice cream and the Pineapple Ripieno, which is fruit sorbet served in a natural pineapple shell. Don’t worry, BoomBozz doesn’t forget about the kiddies; there’s a whole menu just for them as well. www.boombozztaphouse.com. –Kirstina Bolton
