The April Restaurant of the Month is the Angela's Coal Fired Pizza. It's been a few years since we went here, so I'd like to try it again. Expect a little bit of a wait, since I don't believe they take reservations. Next month we will go to one of the restaurants suggested by those who attend this month.
About the Restaurant of the Month:
Cooking with coal brings the ovens up to 900 degrees. Their blazing temperatures cook the pizza fast, giving it a well done crust and creating flavor profiles that just can't be matched by any other cooking method.
The type of coal they use is called Anthracite. Surprisingly, it burns cleaner than fuel such as wood, oil, electricity, and propane because it produces virtually no smoke or polluting emissions. The coal is mined from once abandoned sites, and when mining is complete, grass and trees are planted to attract wildlife back to the area.
Why don't more restaurants cook with coal? Well, it's a very complex and messy method that calls for a lot of 'TLC'. Fortunately, Angela's loves the challenge! What keeps them going is when guests tell them, "I can never eat pizza from anywhere else again!"
