Coalhouse Pizza is a pizza and brew restaurant located in the Bull’s Head strip mall in Stamford. The beer selection, both bottled and on tap, is impressive. The pizza – I wasn’t impressed, especially after hearing rave reviews from other patrons.
The pies I ordered were the Sidewinder and the Unforgettable. My favorite of the two was the latter.
Sidewinder Small: $12.75/Large: $17.75
Fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh basil, garlic, sautéed broccoli rabe, cherry peppers, hot oil, house-made Coalhouse spicy sausage
> The cherry peppers were not needed – it was throwing off the taste of the ingredients – no harmony I guess. Without the peppers, this could have been a great pie.
Unforgettable Small: $13.75/Large: $18.75
House-made vodka sauce, nitrate-free bacon chunks, Pecorino Romano, fresh ground pepper, fresh basil
> Too much of a good thing: vodka sauce. The bacon, who doesn’t love bacon, was great and meshed well with the other ingredients, but too much sauce, which overpowered the rest.
If you’re in Stamford, head to Remo’s instead.
