Pizza-Making at Tavolo

Last week, I joined the Charlotte Food Bloggers at Tavolo for a little pizza-making action. This was my first visit to this uptown Italian kitchen, and I quickly learned that I’d been saying the name all wrong.

Tavolo is pronounced “Tah-vah-lo” which means “table” in Italian. Definitely didn’t know, as I’d been calling it “Tah-vol-o.” Oops.

Tavolo opened last November and has been serving “Italian food made with love” ever since. They make traditional favorites such as lasagna and spaghetti and meatballs, and they cook their pizzas in a wood-based oven.

The chefs at Tavolo hand-make their dough and sauces (alfredo, marinara, roasted garlic oil) and use whole-milk mozzarella. They also sprinkle on a special pizza seasoning specially made for the by Motown Spice Provisions in Concord.

Our group enjoyed cocktails, watched a dough-making demo, and decorated our own pizzas. I was keeping it meat-free, so I choose marinara, mozzarella, mushrooms, tomatoes, kalamata olives, and roasted red peppers. Solid.

Pretty pumped to head back to Tavolo to try their pastas (I have my eye on their risotto menu.) Thanks for the wonderful hospitality and fun night!
