pomodoro fresh italian-highland michigan

i have nothing but great things to say about pomodoros. not only is it family owned and operated but the food is great and you can tell they really love what they are doing. good people making good food. what more can you ask for?

pomodoros is ran by a dude named hank who was an old manager of the french laundry in fenton who then opened up this place not too long ago down in highland. yeah, sounds like a drive but its just past duck lake road on m-59 so from fenton it was only about a 20 minute drive.

anyway, they offer a variety of pizza, salad, grinders, pastas and they also have monthly specials and daily specials.  we went with the 6inch veggie grinder and a medium Mediterranean pizza.


the veggie grinder was nothing short of amazing. served on oven fresh focaccia style bread bread its loaded with portabella mushrooms, peppers, celery, carrots, onions and tomatoes that are all helDSC00254d together with provolone and swiss cheese. there was no bells and whistles about this grinder. it was simply fantastic. and the best part about it was that it was loaded with veggies and was put together so well that when you bite into it not a single item fell out of the bread. it was also served with their own house made pickle and some pickled italian vegetables.


we then dove into the pizza. after the first bite all i could say was WHOA. after the second bite all i could sputter out was WOW. this pizza is whats up. i have had pesto on pizza before but it was always very oily and ruined the whole pizza. pomodoros makes their own pesto and it was the best tasting pesto i have ever had. the pizza is loaded up with feta cheese, kalamata olives, red onion, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts and mozzarella cheeses all on top of soft flakey dough. it was great. i just warmed up my leftovers for dinner and it still tasted great.

check out their website for specials and coupons!
