Broccoli Pizza

Wonder Bar‘s pizza is loaded with fresh, bite sized broccoli florets. The broccoli had a great texture and offered a really nice balance with the tomato sauce making an overall excellent pizza. -DL It seems like an oxymoron to include broccoli on a dish like pizza, but in reality, the fresh, perfectly seasoned broccoli balanced the…

Mushroom Pizza

The pizzas at Wonder Bar re perfect for 2-3 people.  I tried the mushroom pizza, a simple but classic choice.  The red sauced pizza was covered with mozzarella and moist mushrooms.  The cheese was not overwhelming and the flavors blended well.  However, I think the salty kick from the grated parmesan available in jars at the…

Eggplant Pizza

Wonder Bar‘s pizza had chunks of cooked eggplant. When I saw this pizza I got very excited, I have to admit eggplant is one of my new favorite vegetables if it is cooked right. Wonder Bar did an excellent job of removing all the skin from the eggplant, which can be very bitter. I found this…
