After a long day out with friends, four of us stumbled into Nomad Pizza on 7th Street near Broad, and boy did we ever luck out! I'd heard great things about Nomad, but just hadn't got around to getting there (story of my eating-life). Two of my friends had just returned from vacationing in Italy the week before, and at the end of the meal they proclaimed that Nomad's pizza was the closest thing they've had to pizza in Italy. From the first bite, my taste buds sang at both the taste and texture of this rustic pizza. They also offer a bottle of Montepulciano (my personal favorite red) for $30. I can't recommend Nomad enough-- it's a MUST VISIT for Philly.
The Spicy Sausage: Italian tomato, house made mozzarella, Renaissance spicy Italian sausage, caramelized onions, basil, and parmesan cheese.
