I am a pizza addict. When I get the pizza craving, it is all I think about. During my manicure/ pedicure appointment yesterday morning with Sam, I did nothing but search for a NEW pizza joint on my iPhone. I hit up my best friend about going for pizza last night. He proposed my favorite, Barro’s. I love Barro’s pizza more than life itself. Barro’s special pizza, extra crisp, replace the ham with their sausage balls….Oh my God, there is nothing better! Before I could answer, he shot me a second text saying “wanna try Humble Pie?” I didn’t have to think about it, YES! I wanted to try Humble Pie. I was so excited about going to HP. We are huge fans of the restaurant right next to HP, Tryst Cafe at Desert Ridge. It is very challenging for me to sit at Tryst and watch people 5 feet away from me eating pizza. It is torture!
We arrived at Humble Pie at about 5:45pm Sunday evening. It was busy, but we were immediately seated outside on the patio at a great table. I have a quick confession, I hate being crowded at restaurants. I do not like sitting along busy walkways, near bathrooms, or server doors. I am a chick all about my personal space. Saying that, I loved our table. It was “Happy Hour” so drinks were cheap. I had a glass of red wine, and my BFF had one of their signature mixed drinks, a “cucumber tonic”, which consists of house infused cucumber vodka, gin, tonic, and a squeeze of lime. I sampled a sip, and thought it was very tasty and refreshing, two thumbs up! We ordered the baked ravioli appetizer with tomato dipping sauce, and a prosciutto, fig, caramelized onion pizza with their home made mozzarella cheese.
There were five baked ravioli’s total, but we couldn’t wait to dig in. The ravioli’s were perfectly crisp and filled with molten ricotta cheese. The tomato dipping sauce was simple and fresh.
Here is the pie! The fresh mozzarella cheese was awesome, and what doesn’t taste good with prosciutto? The crust was light and crispy. We both thoroughly enjoyed this pizza!
Our first visit to Humble Pie Desert Ridge was complete. Our summary: This restaurant has a casual easy-going vibe. Dress code, t-shirt & flip flops or dressier for a date. We experienced great service, tasty drinks and amazing food. I highly recommend Humble Pie!
