Wild Mushroom Pizza @ St. Philip

My wife isn’t one to obsess over food.  So when she told me four times how much she liked the wild mushroom pizza at St. Philip, I took note.  And she’s right, it is notable.  The pizza delivers big garlicky roasted mushroom flavor.  Traditional red sauce is replaced by St. Philip’s seriously flavorful umami sauce which is featured in more than one of their dishes.  I inquired about the sauce’s ingredients but the waitress was tight-lipped and didn’t share any secrets.  Fresh greens lightly dressed with lemon juice are a necessary addition to help balance the pizza’s richness.  The crust was a little dense but certainly didn’t detract.   I look forward to heading back to St. Philip for some more pie.
