Thanks, folks. I suppose I really shouldn't have been surprised by this. The place has the best of the best, so the fact that they do pizza well fits the mold. It's just funny to me that I've been going there for years and never knew they offered pizza. I guess it was always gone by the time I got there. It was only when I saw pizza on their website that I decided to ask. Glad I did.
@olsonmatt - Good to know. I'll be keeping an eye out for such treats in the future.
@Rodzilla - Sounds like a good idea. I'm certainly no Food Lab, so I was just trying my best not to ruin what looked like a good slice.

dmcavanagh, I can't speak for your mental state, but the pizza was not pink. The hue is mostly due to the lack of light in the dining room. The Dogwood has the lighting set on "couples only", featuring candles on the tables. Great for atmosphere, not so great for my photography.

Even something so seemingly mundane as warehouse placement can affect the flavor and character of a whiskey, whether that's bourbon, Scotch, or Irish. For that matter, warehousing can affect other aged spirits, as well—rum, brandy, tequila, etc. So this is just one concrete (pardon the pun) example of why blending is such an important part of whiskey production.

When is a Maple not a maple? When it's the Maple pizza at the Dogwood Café in Jamaica Plain. The house specialty brick oven pizzas at this JP mainstay pay homage to the nearby Arnold Arboretum (Magnolia, Redwood, Willow, etc.). While there were more than two or tree (sorry) options that bore serious consideration, the winning combination this night was the sausage and ricotta pairing featured on the Maple. More
