Pomo Pizzeria Gilbert
There is nothing like a pizza to fill you up after a long workout – and if that’s what you’re looking for, head over to North Gilbert Road to this little pizzeria. Pomo’s continues the traditions of southern Italian cooking, which includes crusts made with slow-rising sourdough, all-natural ingredients, and flash cooking at super high heats. Try their Tartufata, which features mushroom and white truffle oil, or Toto Sapore with sausage if you need a protein fix. If you’re looking to get in your vegetable quota for the day, Pomo has eight vegetarian pizzas from which to choose, as well as a variety of lean soups and salads.
