A Small Gathering
Where: Bombay Pizza
Order this: Any of their 16-inch specialty pizzas (the saag paneer with stewed greens and creamy paneer, mozzarella, fontina and goat cheese is our favorite). Get a few combinations and mix it up.
Details: Their uber-thin crust pizzas are best eaten immediately, so call ahead right before you want to pick up unless it's a large order - in which case you'll want to give them additional time to prepare
