*This review is just for the express pick up of pizza only* As an out-of-towner to Menlo Park, tried the pizza based on reviews and liked my ""unusual"" pesto pizza w/o the red sauce and not a lot of cheese. My friends who like the ""classic"" taste weren't too keen on it but as long as you get the flavors you like (plenty of classics to choose from as well as the creative ones), it's a tastier, healthier alternative to the chain pizzas. Crust however was just ""OK."" I like super crunchy crusts and this one was a bit too chewy for me. Will go again, however, and try some other combinations.

Applewood makes a decent pizza in a pleasantly run-down atmosphere. There's no wood firing, no tandoori chicken, just good ol' pizza. The crust is neither thick nor thin, the sauce is pleasantly tangy, and with counter service there's little waiting. The selection of beer is german-only, but unusual B-grade German beers.

This is the BEST pizza I've ever eaten, and I'm a long-time New Yorker, though I grew up in the Bay Area. In fact, I framed a menu and hung it on my office wall in New York City so I could remember how yummy it tastes! It's not just the interesting combinations of toppings that make Applewood pizza so delicious--it's the bread dough! I could eat the crust all day long, with or without pizza sauce. It is the best tasting crust EVER, easily beating anything New York can produce. It's has the perfect texture and just the right thickness. It's the first thing I ask for when I come home to Menlo Park!
