Pizza Nono

by Kelsey

Pizza Nono is one of those places that you hope is as awesome and adorable and delicious as it seems – and then it is.

It’s got that 9th and 9th vibe so yes, it has a photobooth (that works!) And yes, it has adorable water glasses and tin plates and communal tables and a letterboard menu and string lights…but it also has the most amazing, non-presumptuous, fresh and simple pizza pie. You can put up with tin plates for this pizza.

The menu is small, with usually only 6 choices, but it’s all you need. I’ve tried about every pie on the menu. Sgt. Sausage Pepper: sausage, peppers, red onions, and fresh mozz. Margherita, of course (Tomato Sauce, Fresh Mozzarella, Grana Parmesan, Basil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil). One of their rotating special pies included ricotta, pepperoni, spinach, mushrooms. I really love the vegan pie, with artichoke, garlic, red onion, a huge pile of fresh arugula on top after it bakes, and drizzled with balsamic glaze.

One bite and we were like WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR A PIZZA PLACE LIKE THIS IN UTAH AND WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT. And we were bowled over by the flavors, the attention paid to the crust and the dough, and the combo of toppings,
which is creative and fun but not too over-the-top that you lose the taste of the pizza altogether.

They are a good size – a solid 6 fat slices each – and between our family of four (including 2 kids under 5), we finished them off and were full. If we’d splurged for some salad or sides I’m sure there would have been leftovers. There are a few sides available, like salads, olives, and flatbread.

Take full advantage of 9th and 9th people-watching and fun shops to visit while you’re digesting. Parking can be a little tricky but it’s worth it for a fun evening in the neighborhood. Patio seating is available in the warmer seasons and really opens the place up (which is pretty limited on seating indoors – one big communal table and a few small 2-person tabletops.) Not super kid-friendly with the seating arrangements in winter but we have brought our kids and it was a good time.

Will we ever eat another pizza from Utah again that’s not from Nono? Most likely not.
