Black Sheep Pizza

Apparently 5yo Drake and 3yo Guppy can eat at Punch pizza once a week for years and not tire of it. Not me, so I’ve been trying to expand our family-dining horizons and tried the recently opened Black Sheep, whose coal-fired pizza is different enough from Punch’s wood-fired pies to feel like a change.

Black Sheep has two sizes, a handful of menu pizzas, then a long list for making your own. Though not as fast as Punch (what could be?) the pizza was delicious, more evenly cooked, and much less oily. We were in a hurry, so didn’t try any of the alluring appetizers, or the home-made ice cream sandwiches. But we devoured both small pizzas, and will happily try Black Sheep again, though only in good weather. Street parking was sparse so we had far to walk on a day with a vicious wind chill. Rain, especially like today’s, would also be unpleasant for the long walk.

    I’m jealous of anyone who can get good pizza where they live. Nashville is not so good when it comes to the ‘za, and really goes to show that pizza is really one of those things that it’s hard to screw up, but even more difficult to do really well. One place does a pretty decent White pizza, but otherwise most everywhere we’ve tried has been largely unremarkable. Sigh.

    Sounds good, especially the homemade ice-cream sandwiches! Where in the metro is Black Sheep pizza?
