Steel City Pizza really hits a high note with their freshly made pizzas, fresh ingredients and even a recent addition of cauliflower crust pizzas! Steel City Pizza draws its roots in from Pittsburgh, PA, known for its spectacular family style pizza restaurants. The restaurant has been slinging Pittsburgh style pizzas in Charleston for over 13 years. There are locations in Summerville, North Charleston and Mt. Pleasant.
Last weekend I visited the Steel City location in Mt. Pleasant with my mom and we decided to split their California Veggie Cauliflower Crust Pizza. This pizza is complete with a deliciously tangy and slightly sweet red sauce, lots of melted provolone and mozzarella cheese, roasted red pepper, caramelized onion, baby spinach and chili flakes. I loved the flavor that the red sauce added to this pizza – honestly I can’t remember the last time I had a red sauce that was so full of flavor. The cheese to crust ratio hit a high note as well. The cauliflower crust is very thin so obviously that just means you need lots of cheese, which Steel City did not skimp on! I loved the spinach, red pepper and onion mixed in with, which made the pizza super colorful and extra delicious. The entire pizza cost us $14, which might seem a bit steep for a cauliflower crust pizza, but the taste made it well worth the price. If you split it with a friend, that can help lower the price per person as well.
The restaurant offers plenty of appetizers, pasta dishes, wings, salads, “weggies”, cheesesteaks, sandwiches and a variety of standard crust pizzas. I would say if you’re feeling extra hungry, definitely opt for one of the standard crust pizzas, as the cauliflower crust I mentioned previously is super thin. You can also pair a cauliflower crust pizza with an appetizer or some wings for a delicious, hearty meal. I hope you get a chance to indulge in some pizza at Steel City soon!
