You can tell you’re back at college when you’re too lazy to cook yourself food or walk to the dining center, so instead you order yourself a big greasy pizza from the nearest and cheapest pizza place. As I was chomping down on my pizza today, I was thinking about just how much I miss pizza from my favorite pizza place in Door County–the Wild Tomato.
The Wild Tomato is a restaurant located in Fish Creek, Wisconsin on Highway 42. Of the top places to visit on a Door County Vacation, the Wild Tomato is definitely in the top 5. It is the place to be on any night of the week, with packed indoor and outdoor seating during any prime meal hour.
It isn’t just packed for nothing, however. The pizza at the Wild Tomato is truly out of this world. The pizzas are wood-fired and consist of very fresh and high-quality ingredients. You can order any imaginable type of pizza from the traditional sausage and cheese pizza to the Wild Tomato’s specialty pizzas (The Green and Gold Pizza–featuring real Wisconsin cheese curds, Chicken & Choke–featuring grilled chicken and artichoke dip, and many more). My personal favorite is called the Donation Creation. This specialty pizza changes monthly, and the time I had it the flavor was similar to a taco pizza. The special thing about this pizza is that $1 of each Donation Creation goes to local non-profit organizations.
Being young and slightly impatient sometimes, my favorite part of the Wild Tomato is its “To-Go order” building. Instead of fighting the rush inside the restaurant when you simply want a pizza to-go, walk behind the Wild Tomato to find the “To-Go” building. The wait for pick-up is typically only about 20 minutes, and there are picnic tables to enjoy your pizza at if you so choose. This is a great option for families or for those who still want to enjoy the Wild Tomato without the wait.
