Hamilton County “Craft” Pizza

According to a United States Department of Agriculture study, about 1 in 8 Americans eat pizza everyday. Although we typically credit Italy with inventing our beloved tomato sauce and melty cheese pies, pizza is easily one of America’s favorite meals.

 Foodies, rejoice, because in Hamilton County, Ind., pizza is not only a staple, but also an art.

 “Pizzartisans” like Neal Brown, owner of Pizzology in Carmel, are challenging the status quo and getting creative with sauces, cheeses and, of course, toppings.
