Tahoe eats: Base Camp Pizza
- Tiara Wasner
I'm not going to lie, I love food. I don't count calories - I eat whatever I want and I workout (cue "I'm sexy and I know it..."). Ok, all jokes aside I eat pretty healthy, but I had some amazing pizza on Friday and had to share.
Base Camp Pizza (1001 Heavenly Village Way, South Lake Tahoe, CA) is a fairly new restaurant in Tahoe South. They offer gourmet pizzas, drinks served in mason jars and a fun camp-like atmosphere. I was there for a lunch meeting and can't wait to go back with my husband and winter visitors. Hands down it's now my favorite pizza place. We ordered a large half Thai chicken curry and half big mountain pizza, an apple and walnut salad, and out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookie.
Italian and Thai worlds collide and the result -- Thai chicken curry pizza. It has the perfect ratio of curry, cilantro, veggies, chicken and lime to dough. The biggest seller was the thin crust pizza dough. Check out the mouthwatering photo below! I must admit I'm now craving this pizza! Want more menu details? Check it out here.
The four of us shared the deliciousness of the out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookie. Drum roll please...
Base Camp Pizza is family friendly, perfect for a date night or lunch with the girls. Rumor has it they might sell pizza by the slice this winter. I can't wait to cap off a long day on the mountain with a couple of slices of pizza from an outside pizza bar.
Note: Their menu varies seasonally and they offer a full service bar.
