Pizza at the New Whole Foods Market in Winter Park.
The new location for Whole Foods Market is now open, at 1030 North Orlando Avenue Winter Park. If you have been to any of the newer Whole Foods Market locations recently, this new market follows the trend of premium quality grocery produce and an ever-increasing amount of Grab – n – Go meals in addition to Sushi and a full-service coffee bar.
But for me, the absolute winner was the Pizza Bar featuring made to order Neapolitan Pizzas, sold either self-service by the slice or a whole 16-inch Pizza prepared and cooked to order right in front of you.
I chose the Il Rosemerino – Marinated Eggplant, Onion, Pepper, Squash, Zucchini, Basil Walnut Pesto and Mozzarella. A tremendous thin crust Pizza with just the correct amount of blistered edge with amazing fresh taste.
Other varieties were – Leaning Tower of Pepperoni, Festa Di San Gennaro (Meat Ball, Sausage, Ham and Pork etc.), Il Formaggio Classico, Margherita and Il Carciofo (Bacon, Artichoke Heart)
If you live in and around Winter Park and need a take-out Pizza this is a MUST, I struggle with the quality and cost of chain Pizza restaurants and have yet to find a stand-alone Artisan Pizza place I like.
The Whole Foods Market Pizza for me hits the spot, so off to try another variety before the word gets out.
