When it comes to eating healthy, some people may view it as a chore or sacrifice. But what if we told you that eating healthy can be just as cool as indulging in your favorite guilty pleasure? Eating nutritious foods can be just as delicious, fun, and satisfying as eating less healthy options. Our friends at Alta Via Pizzeria
have absolutely mastered this art. Pizza is literally in their name but we thought we’d think outside the (pizza) box and show you some of the delicious non-pizza options they offer! At Alta Via Pizzeria, you can indulge in a range of delicious and healthy dishes that won't leave you feeling guilty. We're also so excited to announce that AVP is open 7 days a week for dine in and carry out. Check out some of our suggestions below.
FRESH GRILLED ARTICHOKES
Served with a lemon aioli, citrus-olive salsa, oregano
If it’s your first time dining at AVP, we always recommend you start with these incredible grilled artichokes. Artichokes are a delicious and versatile vegetable that can be prepared in a variety of ways, but when paired with zesty lemon aioli, citrus-olive salsa, and a dash of oregano, they become truly unbelievable. The lemon aioli adds a creamy and tangy element to it, while the citrus-olive salsa brings a bright and refreshing flavor to balance the earthiness of the artichokes. The oregano adds a savory depth that ties all the flavors together. With each bite, you'll savor the combination of the tender artichokes with the vibrant and tangy dressing, making for a flavorful and satisfying culinary experience. Plus, the tangy and savory flavors of the lemon aioli and citrus-olive salsa will pair perfectly with a crisp glass of white wine.
BRUSSELS SPROUTS SALAD
Served with black currants, Honeycrisp apple, Pecorino Romano, pine nuts, lemon vinaigrette
Brussels sprouts have become so trendy in recent years as a flavorful and nutritious side dish. When a bed of Brussels sprouts is combined with black currants, Honeycrisp apples, Pecorino Romano, pine nuts, and a tangy lemon vinaigrette, they transform into the freshest and most satisfying dish on the AVP menu. The black currants add a tart and sweet flavor to the salad, while the Honeycrisp apple provides a juicy crunch that is much needed. The Pecorino Romano cheese brings a savory saltiness that balances out the dish's sweetness, and the pine nuts offer a pleasant nuttiness and crunch. The lemon vinaigrette ties all the flavors together, bringing a bright and tangy flavor making it the perfect dish for a hot summer day that perfectly complements the Brussels sprouts. Each bite is a deliciously balanced combination of textures and flavors that will make you savor every last bite. Craving a bit of protein? Opt to add in salmon or grilled chicken to satisfy the carnivore in you! To pair with the fresh and vibrant flavors of this dish, we recommend a light and refreshing cocktail like a gin and tonic.
Gin and Tonic
Served with baby kale, romaine, radicchio,pickled red onions, shaved Asiago, bread crumbs, and Caesar dressing
A classic Caesar salad takes on a new life with this fresh and flavorful update. Baby kale, romaine, and radicchio, all combined with tangy pickled red onions, nutty shaved Asiago cheese, crispy bread crumbs, and a house-made creamy Caesar dressing make this “simple” salad a complete slay. The baby kale adds a delicate texture and a touch of bitterness, while the romaine and radicchio bring a satisfying crunch and slightly bitter taste that pairs well with the creamy dressing. The pickled red onions add a bright tangy flavor that really cuts through the richness of the salad, while the shaved Asiago cheese brings a nutty and salty flavor. The crispy bread crumbs add a delightful crunch and texture to the dish. With every bite, you'll taste the perfect balance of flavors and textures that make this Caesar salad a refreshing and delicious dish that you'll keep coming back to. We recommend adding grilled chicken to this one, it’s perfectly seasoned and will have you addicted to this salad. To match the sophisticated flavors of this dish, we recommend a classic cocktail like a martini.
Served wth vodka sauce, grilled chicken, fresh mozzarella, basil, bread crumbs, Pecorino Romano
If you aren’t familiar with mafaldini pasta, Malfadini is a type of pasta with a ribbon-like shape, which is totally elevated to a new level of deliciousness when paired with their signature creamy vodka sauce (featured on their incredible Carnivore pizza!), succulent grilled chicken, fresh mozzarella, fragrant basil, crispy bread crumbs, and salty Pecorino Romano cheese. The pasta's delicate texture and shape make it the perfect vessel to hold the vodka sauce, which adds a rich and comforting creaminess to the dish. The grilled chicken provides a hearty protein, while the fresh mozzarella adds a silky creaminess that balances out the dish's richness. The basil brings a refreshing herbaceous flavor and aroma, while the crispy bread crumbs add a delightful crunch. The salty Pecorino Romano cheese adds a tangy and savory flavor that ties everything together. Each bite is a perfectly balanced combination of flavors and textures that will have you savoring every last bite of this decadent pasta dish. We recommend pairing it with a bold and fruity red wine to match the robust flavors of this dish.
