You haven’t lived, until you have had Carriage Inn Pizza. I grew up spending my summers in a small town in Southern Indiana, where my Aunt and Uncle owned the busiest pizza place around- The Old Carriage Inn. Some of my fondest memories were spent here, but the pizza is what I miss the most. I had a craving for this pizza, and I must say I nailed it. This is not the exact recipe, but this pizza was exactly as I remembered. I’m salivating just writing this right now.
