EVO Wood-Fired Pizza, North Charleston
North Charleston , South Carolina
Tel: 843 225 1796
Concierge.com's insider take:
It might be borderline sacrilege to suggest pizza in a coastal town full of fresh seafood joints, but EVO's featherlight, cracker-crisp pies would be required eating anywhere. This North Charleston pizzeria started out when two flatbread-crazed chefs traded high-end culinary gigs at FIG and Normandy Farms for a wood-fired pizza cart at Marion Square's weekly farmers market. Now in permanent digs in historic North Charleston, EVO uses locally grown ingredients on top of a complex, bready crust that melts on the tongue. Start off with crisp salad and a cold pint of Highland Brewing's locally brewed oatmeal porter, then choose between the classically simple tomato, basil, and cheese Margherita pie or the meaty pork trifecta (topped with house-made sausage, pepperoni, and smoky bacon).
Open Tuesdays through Fridays 11 am to 2:30 pm and 5 to 10 pm, Saturdays 6 to 10 pm.
