Here lately there has been a lot of hype about a new pizza place in Carthage, MO, called Cave Gang Pizza (910 S. Garrison Ave, Carthage, MO). Friday night after the fair, we decided to go try it out.
This is a wood fire pizza joint and let’s just say YUM! The atmosphere is really something to be reckoned with. The story is that the building is built over an underground cavern. There was a group of boys called the 10th Street Cave Gang and they would go into the cave and leave trinkets as far back as they could travel.
Since then the building has had many different purposes and the cavern has been closed off for public safety. Now, the building is the home of Cave Gang Pizza for diversity to the Carthage eating joints.
Initially Mark and I were going to order 2 small pizzas but our server told us it was cheaper to order a large and have it split. We were sold.
So one side is a Chicken Bacon Ranch. Chicken, Bacon, Flaked Parmesan on a Ranch Base.
The other half of our pizza was the 10th Street Special but Mark thought it should be called everything but the kitchen sink :). Beef, Chicken, Italian Sausage, Pepperoni, Bacon, Bell Pepper, Onions, Black Olives, Tomatoes, Spinach Cauliflower, Red Sauce with a perfect cheese blend. We thought the cauliflower was an interesting addition but upon eating the pizza, YUM! It was good.
Mark liked the 10th Street Special better while my favorite was the Chicken Bacon Ranch. Different flavors for different folks :). I would say we will be going back and trying other flavors. My next choice will be The Pigfeather Alfredo :).
