Bazbeaux Pizza (downtown)

Gourmet pizza with homemade sauces and dough; 50 toppings; salads (try the creamy basil dressing) and decent sandwiches. We favor the garden pizza and the Tchoupitoulas (fun to say, more fun to eat). Also try the new Broad Ripple location, although downtown provides some fun people-watching along Mass Ave and a door-blocking mannequin named Maxine. This is a great place for lunch, as they offer three or four pizzas-by-the-slice for a few dollars.

We opted for take-out sandwiches the other day. I went for the tuna sub, which had lots of tuna and very little mayo. That made it a little dry and crumbly, but I appreciated not drowning it in Hellman’s.

Chris had the Muffaletta, and I am only now beginning to appreciate the spicy, salty, nasty goodness that is 18 kinds of Italian meat and green olive spread with cheese. These are big sandwiches (and come with chips and a pickle), so to finish one was a bit indulgent but so worth every bite.
