“Very different but delicious pizza! ”
Review of Evo Pizza

Evo Pizza
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$10 - US$25
Cuisines: Pizza, Bar
Description: EVO (Extra Virgin Oven) Pizzeria is the wood-fired dream of Matt McIntosh and Ricky Hacker. Matt and Ricky met while working in the illustrious kitchen at FIG in downtown Charleston in 2003. The pair spent the better part of a year forming the concept for a wood-fired pizza shop that would focus on local ingredients. In 2005 they flew the coop to start EVO. The first incarnation was a mobile wood-fired pizza oven - in other words, a fancy trailer - that they used for catering. Turns out, people really like fancy trailer pizza. It became apparent that the concept was ready for a brick & mortar restaurant, and they found a perfect home on East Montague Avenue in North Charleston, part of the up-and-coming Park Circle area. In 2007, EVO Pizzeria fired up its ovens for the public, and hasn't stopped since. We come to work at EVO every day to bring fun, delicious food and drink to our community. We source locally and regionally because we're proud to be here. We cook with love because we love to cook. And who doesn't love pizza?

We were looking for a place to eat on our way to the outlet mall and came across EVO on trip advisor. We had the pistachio pizza with pepperoni and it was very good!!! Not what you would expect! You could taste a hint of pistachio but it wasn't too much, just the right flavor. The crust was amazing! It was fun to watch them toss the crust in the back too. Don't get the bread as an appetizer-- way too filling and not as good as the pizza. I saw a few peoples salads around me and I wish I had ordered one. We shared a 12" pizza between the two of us and nothing was left. The service was impeccable-- our glasses never got below half full. Lots of local beers to choose from. The decor was also neat and fun to check out. Looked like a lot of local art. We would definitely come back.

Went in for lunch last week! Everything was so delicious, the host was on point and the pizza was great! We had the corn and chorizo. Service was good. My only complaint was the wait, but it was worth it!

I remember the first time I ate at EVO's, it was a unique experience and the pizza was fabulous. I enjoyed the environment the great wait staff and the outstanding pizza. I have returned several times after that first visit and come to think of it, I'm over due for another visit. See you there!

Great pizza, it is pretty pricey, but you can tell how fresh the ingredients are by the look and taste of the food.

Only issue was it took a good twenty minutes for our server to reach us. After that it was smooth sailing. Good drinks, service and pizzas.

We will be back.
