Pizza: Pizza Tree

Pizza Tree bills itself as Columbia’s “funnest” pizza shop, and you’d be hard-pressed to disagree. Classic pepperoni is the best-seller, but Pizza Tree earned its reputation with creative pies like the bánh mì, with Sriracha-glazed pork belly, the Corne Asada, with corn purée and queso fresco, and the Ranch Hands, with buttered onion, ground sirloin, peppered bacon and white Cheddar.
