Whether you have a gas or charcoal grill, you have an excellent chance of reproducing the pizza you love in your own backyard. In a wood fired or deck oven in a pizzeria the temperature is usually around 700-800 degrees.

Eat Locally and Seasonally All Summer Long With Grow OV

Last summer, as a relative newcomer to the area, I was thrilled to learn that we have a great Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) option right here in Downtown Wheeling: Grow Ohio Valley. For a reasonable upfront rate, my husband and I dined on an abundance of fresh produce well into the month of October: zucchini, corn, tomatoes, strawberries, okra, sweet potatoes, garlic, herbs, and even the occasional pound or two of locally-raised, free-range beef.
