A three hour drive to Boston is best broken up by lunch, preferably pizza, and always with a good friend. This is how I found myself at Camille’s Wood Fired Pizza in Tollandwith someone as obsessed with pizza as I am.
A strikingly thin and crispy yet solidly constructed crust forms the foundation for Camille’s 11 or so red and white pies. They range from the classic margherita to their signature Billy’s Bianco, a combination of pistachio, cream, goat cheese, ricotta, truffle honey, red onion (pictured). Their spicy sausage and kale was an excellent lunch partner alongside the Bianco, balanced well with savory sausage, spicy chile oil, and slight bitterness from the kale smoothed out by mozzarella.
In addition to pizza, Camille's has a number of small and large plates from eggplant fries to meatballs, salads, and a solidly curated beer list. If I didn’t live so far away, this would be my neighborhood pizza joint. For those of you lucky enough to live in Tolland County, it is clearly yours.
Camille’s Wood Fired Pizza is located at 23 E Fieldstone Commons in Tolland, CT. For more information visit camillespizza.com.
