Sample a Specialty Pizza at Villaggio Del Vino

January 10, 2017 10:00 am

Pistachio pesto, spicy sausage, house-made mozzarella cheese, and extra virgin olive oil. These are the components that make up the popular Pistachio e Salsiccia pizza at Villaggio Del Vino, a popular wine bare and pizzeria in Tyler. The pies here are creative and beautiful—and that they tend to pair perfectly with a glass of wine or an artisan cocktail.

The pistachio pizza may be the most popular, but it's far from your only option. Share some slices of the meat-free Giardino, which features caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, basil, hand-smashed San Marzano tomatoes, and more of the house-crafted mozzarella cheese. On the other end of the spectrum, there's the Della Carne pie, loaded with pepperoni, Italian sausage, hot soppressata, and tomatoes and cheese. You can also opt for a classic Italian entree (think shrimp scampi and chicken marsala) or simply do a few appetizers with your vino at this beloved local eatery and bar.
