Montgomery Pizzeria Named One of the Best in Minnesota
Mike Marcotte from Twin Cities Live took your votes to put together a list of the best pizzerias around Minnesota and Pizzeria 201 in Montgomery made the list!
On Mike's Facebook page, Mike's Twitter, the Twin Cities Live Facebook page, and via email, Mike tallied up where everyone suggested as the best pizzerias in Minnesota. The segment is called 'Worth the Trip,' and people around Minnesota determined that Pizzeria 201 in Montgomery is worth it.
In Mike's blog, he writes that when the last pizzeria in Montgomery closed, husband and wife Troy and Diane took advantage of the opportunity and opened up their own pizzeria. They had no experience running a restaurant but Diane loves cooking. Mike writes that "she owns about 1,000 cookbooks - that's after giving away hundreds more."
At Pizzeria 201, all of their produce is grown in their garden next door. And the sausage and bacon come from Troy and Diane's hog farm. They also have mobile woodfire pizza ovens you can rent for events and they also park them at different locations. You can check out where to find one of their woodfire ovens on the Pizzeria 201 Facebook page.
And to top it all off they serve beer and wine, some of them are from a local brewery and winery! If you get there and they're extremely busy, Mike writes that they also deliver to Montgomery Brewing.
The other pizzerias that made Mike's list are:
Aurelio's Pizza - Ramsey
Mama's Pizza - St. Paul
Metric's Woodfire Oven and Tavern - Hampton
Pizza Barn - Princeton
