Hog & Hominy is known for its great food like the Red Eye pizza. However, if you take a minute to look at the rest of their menu, it’s more than just the Red Eye pizza that stands out. In fact, my waiter for the evening, Mickey B., verified this when going over everything. “Some things have changed, other’s haven’t. For example, our pizzas are still fantastic,” he said. So I decided to go with the one I couldn’t stop staring at, the Thunderbird! 40 Twice ($16)! Turns out it was my waiter’s favorite pizza on the menu.

The Thunderbird! 40 Twice! is made up of fontina and mozzarella cheese, pepperoni and spicy honey. The two cheeses blend well together and melt in your mouth. The pepperoni is savory and well cooked. As for the pizza crust, it’s thin, crunchy and has a small coating of oil on it. Overall, the pizza is very spicy. The spicy honey kicks in immediately, but after a while the spiciness dies down, the sweetness of the honey kicks in and the pizza becomes this amazing spicy and sweet mixture. Try this pizza immediately! There wasn’t one slice left!
