I love this pizza so much that I often crave a piece of pepperoni and kalamata olives. The ingredients are super fresh!

Finally giving in to my wife, I gave Hard Knox a try. I'm not a big fan of thin crest, wood fired pizzas. But, Hard Knox has changed my mind. Their pizzas are absolutely the best I've had. The crest and toppings are the freshest...More

The pizzas were made with fresh ingredients, completely from scratch. Baked in a super-hot wood-fired oven, they were delicious, with a bit of delightful char on the thin crust, and came out quickly. The microbrews available go perfectly with the pies. While the regular margherita...More

1.The sauce should not overpower the pizza..it doesn't, 2. the cheese should strech from the pizza when you bite into it, not snap off like the cheap cheeses do, it streches and tastes fresh,3 The crust should be crusty but chewy, hard combo unless you...More
