This is a rare occasion I find myself in when I think about Maxwell's as the local Park City pizza joint and just how many stars it deserves. For me, to give a pizza place 5 stars means they really have got something exceptional. That they are clearly a cut above the rest and have proven that pizza that isn't deep dish, can be, indeed, still delicious.
Mind you, I was never really the biggest fan of New York pizza even the few times I've had it. I mean, it's good ... but it's still pizza. Until Maxwell's changed my mind.
We came here on our last night in Park City because cooking just got tiring and I think we all just wanted some 3.2% beer to wash down the Niners loss ... so it goes for the best rated place in Park City and we found ourselves at the snowy doorstep of Maxwell's. We made a reservation in advance by about an hour so did not have to wait at all and were promptly seated when we arrived. The waitress put down some menu's and let us have it.
Their pizzas are phenomenal. And yes, 6 people can kill two 20 inch pizzas plus 2 pastas if they really tried! The pizzas came out hot, full of flavor and ingredients, loaded with sauce and just the right amount of cheese. The crust was delightfully NOT crunchy and hard like a brick, or burnt at all but cooked perfectly to a golden brown with that chewy dough-like flavor that makes for a great crust. The vegetarian choices were actually, in my opinion, better than their meat loaded pizzas which is a huge thumbs up for the combination of flavors and ingredients they used in the pizza.
But let's not forget ... they also make pasta. By they make pasta I mean ... they make it fresh in house every day! You can order a variety of different fresh made pastas with an even more variety of different sauces with toppings as well all at very reasonable prices. The fettucini with marinara was out of this world! It was so incredibly simple and yet so deliciously fresh and flavorful. If Italian tasted like this back home, I'd be fat!
I can't say more about how amazing this place is, and how it's changed my mind about New York style pizzas. I'd come back to Park City just for Maxwell's. It was that awesomeRecommended for:Vegetarian
