Spark Wood Fire Grill is more of a restaurant that uses a wood fire grill/oven. Since it is convenient, with the wood fire and all, they specialize in pizza. It is kind of a nice low key fancy place. That has kind of upscale food, but not too expensive.

The pizza fits right in. The crust was nice and thin and had a doughy edge. Of course it was under cooked. Not crispy enough. The strange thing was the taste. I couldn't figure it out at first, and I am still not sure, but it tasted slightly like sourdough, interesting. There was, as you can see a ton of basil. I love basil, but really it was a bit much. The cheese was cheese, actually the cheese was pretty decent except there was a little too much. Maybe it wasn't so much cheese as it was the lack of sauce. I'd like to say what I thought of the sauce but I couldn't really taste it that much. I know it looks as if there is a sufficient amount, but there really wasn't a lot on 70 percent of the pie.
This pizza had potential but some key things were off. If you went out expecting a nice dinner and decided to get pizza, you wouldn't be disappointed, however if you want a pizza and decide to eat one here you are going to miss NY. And so another 3 rating it is.
