The Burnham at CBD Bar (Christchurch, NZ)

Of the pizzas she's had in Christchurch, my daughter likes best the wood-fired ones served, not at a pizzeria but a brewery out in the borough of Woolston. Known for award-winning beers that they've been crafting since 2010, Cassels & Sons added a gastropub to the brewery. Enter the pizzas. I've eaten there three times on the way back...

Patxi’s Pizza

Zion Pizza & Noodle Company (Springdale, UT)

This is our second time at Zion Pizza & Noodle Company; the first time was in 2008. Pizzas here are pretty good, the dough thicker than we prefer.
