I’m a big pizza lover. Always have been, always will be.
It’s been a while, but it’s time we talk about the gem that is 9 Miles East in our community. Over the summer I highlighted their meal delivery service for anyone looking to make their busy lives easier and healthier with freshly prepared food delivered to your doorstep.
Now, I want to talk about their pizza.
First off – this isn’t your traditional delivery pizza. Because it’s actually relatively healthy. That’s right guys – no guilt here. (Not that you should feel guilty for eating something you want, but that’s another blog post waiting to happen.)
Let’s talk ingredients.
- Fresh slow-roasted tomatoes.
- Herbs from the farm.
- Mozzarella cheese from Capiello Dairy in Schenectady, (which is 50% more expensive than commodity mozzarella and 100% better.)
- Flour grown in New York State and freshly milled at Farmer Ground Flour in Ithaca.
- It takes three days to make their naturally leavened, sourdough-style crust.
It’s true – every little attention to detail these guys put into their pizza makes a difference.
They offer three options:
Changes every week!
Last night, I ordered the seasonal pizza, which was covered in hot peppers and sweet corn.
All I can say is… WOW.
First off, on a very general level, this pizza was DELICIOUS. Truly unlike any pizza you can get around here (or anywhere!)
The peppers were HOT but totally worth the pain I endured for a few minutes.
That sourdough crust is truly wonderful, whether you have a problem with gluten or not. I’ve heard that sourdough is easier on people who have gluten sensitivities, so this pizza opens the door for so many more pizza lovers. YOU’RE WELCOME.

A word to the wise – unless the pizza is ice cold when you get it (which I doubt would ever happen), don’t throw it in the oven. The crust is cooked to the perfect temperature, so when you put it in the over, I found it altered the flavor slightly. Just my opinion, but I think it’s perfect just the way it comes.
