Beautiful Pizza at Pizzeria 712
Enter the holy grail of dining in Orem: Pizzeria 712. Tucked away in an ocean of beige strip malls and condos, this little oasis leaves you positively uplifted with it's cuisine and delicious beverages. Shug and I started our meal with a pork belly on a bed of tart cole slaw. The pork belly was so tender we could cut it with our forks. I enjoyed a seasonal salad with blanched almonds, fresh nectarines, green beans, red potatoes, and a simple vinaigrette. The highlight of the dinner was definitely the pizza Shug ordered. While I wasn't able to sample the pizza (damn you, gluten!), Shug reported the fresh mozzarella and basil paired perfectly with the thin slices of summer squash and Pecorino Romano cheese.
