Pizza & Beer at Stone Hearth

Hope you’re all having a relaxing Sunday night!  I don’t know why I always wait until now to post when I could have done it earlier…but then again I think I’ve been that way for as long as I can remember.  Sunday night homework anyone??

Last week was crazy busy!!  I participated in my 3rd Flashmob Thursday night at the State Room in Boston for a charity event hosted by Kevin Youkilis of  the Boston Red Sox. 

There were late rehearsals on Tuesday and Wednesday with the actual event on Thursday.  Throw in a blogger event Wednesday evening before rehearsal and I was one tired girl by Friday! 

In case you’re curious… 

I’m in the pinkish sequin dress splitting center in the beginning.  Space was tight, and I kind of think it’s hilarious we all blanked at one point in the beginning while up on the damn stage.  Never once in rehearsal did that happen, but what can you do…besides keep going.  We were all really squished for the other dances too but it was SO FUN!!  Plus we were able to enjoy this very nice event a bit before and after we performed. 

Moving on…back to Wednesday!

I was invited to, what sounded like, a delicious and fun event at the new Stone Hearth Pizza location in Allston!


I was even more excited to learn it was a stand alone building with a parking lot and I wouldn’t have to deal with trying to park in Allston center.

There was a nice big group of us bloggers, and we were seated at a long table ready to dive into some appetizers, salads, pizza, and dessert.  All of this delicious food was also accompanied by some fantastic beer from Clown Shoes. 


A representative from Pete & Gerry’s eggs was also there to tell us about their eggs and one of our desserts was made specially with Pete & Gerry’s eggs!


Centerpieces of heirloom eggs


When I arrived, some appetizers were just being brought to the table. 

We sampled their Parmesan Flatbread (thin chewy flavorful cheesy!)


Cheddar Covered Olives (loved these!!)

These were so different!  A salty olive covered in a cheese coating and baked.  They had a nice little kick to them as well. 

And we had all three varieties of their Meatball Poppers


Basically, they are their housemade meatballs (made with locally raised beef) stuffed with mozzarella cheese!   

They came with signature tomato sauce, spicy tomato sauce, and also creamy roasted onion and herb sauce


I loved them all!  I’m a sucker for a good meatball, especially when I can order them as an appetizer.  The tomato sauces were delicious, and the herb sauce ones reminded me of beef stroganoff…YUM!

To accompany these appetizers, we all sampled some Clown Shoes  Clementine.  I’ve tried some of Clown Shoes’ beers before, and this is one of my favorites.  I love how refreshing white ale’s are. 



Next, there were 4 beautiful salads brought over to the table.


I didn’t get photos of them all, but the one above is the Spinach and Avocado which also has red onion and lightly dressed. 


This salad had romaine, pears, shredded celeriac, and walnuts.  Loved the flavor combinations on this one! 

There was also a classic Caesar salad, and an Arugula and Portobello salad. 

Our next beer was another that I knew I liked…Tramp Stamp!


They have some really funny names for their beers! 


Tramp Stamp is a Belgian Style IPA.  I’m usually not crazy about IPA’s (some are much too bitter for my liking), but I do love Belgian Style ales, and I really like this one as well.  It’s citrusy and refreshing but a bit more bite than the Clementine.   I believe I heard this uses some West Coast hops, and after our trip to San Fran in November I know I like West Coast style IPA’s much better than other IPA’s. 

Pizza time.

 Farm Fresh Garlic oil, cherry tomatoes, charred red/yellow peppers, Yukon gold potatoes, artichoke hearts, green olives, fresh mozzarella, and topped with a salad of arugula, red onion and prosciutto


Bacon & Blue Garlic oil, julienned zucchini/squash blend,
mozzarella/provolone blend, smoked bacon, blue cheese, cherry tomatoes, and finished with fresh basil


The Divine Goddess Our healthful version of a white pizza. Garlic oil, topped with a mixture of fresh spinach, broccoli, local ricotta cheese and finished with our cheese blend and a pinch of parmesan


This was their current special, and also probably my favorite of the night, it had leeks, maple sausage, gouda, kale, and cilantro.  I didn’t really taste the cilantro but that’s ok because it was AMAZING.  The best part was how the pieces of kale got all crispy on top.  This is making me so hungry right now!

We also tried The Bean:  Garlic oil, white bean spread, fresh mozzarella, sautéed red onion topped with a spinach, red onion, and pesto salad

I don’t think I’ve ever had a pizza with bean spread on it, but I loved this. 

I actually really loved them ALL!!  The crust was super thin and chewy, the vegetables and other toppings were SO fresh, they weren’t overly inundated with cheese, didn’t leave my hands greasy, and the flavor combinations were unique and delicious!

I was lucky that Shannon agreed to go half-sies with me on all the slices so we could try them all without getting too full!

Best Plan Ever.  The Bacon and Blue was a close second favorite, by the way. 


The last two beers we tried were the Brown Angel, American Brown Ale, and the Supa Hero! 

The Brown Angel was smooth, slightly sweet and went down nice and easy.  The Supa Hero, on the other hand, was more of the type of IPA that’s a little too bitter for me!  Good flavor, but I only had a few sips. 



Stone Hearth Pizza has partnered with Pete & Gerry’s by providing a delicious Custard for a Cause dessert.  Stone Hearth will serve a seasonal custard dessert using Pete and Gerry’s eggs, and all proceeds go to a local charity called Community Servings.  Community Servings prepares, packages, and delivers fresh meals for people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.   

Our custard was served with organic maple syrup from Schoolyard Sugarbush and walnuts. 

I was a BIG fan of the custard…love the creaminess and the flavors. 

The other dessert was Sweet Potato gelato!!  We had to guess the flavor, and it was so subtle at first I had NO idea…but as soon as I heard sweet potato, I couldn’t get the taste out of my mouth.  Normally I’d love it, but I think I’ve OD’d on the sweet potatoes lately…my taste buds need a little break…I know, I didn’t think it was possible either!!

A BIG Thanks to Stone Hearth Pizza, Clown Shoes Beer, and Pete & Gerry’s!!  It was a fun, relaxing evening with some awesome pizza and beer, and even some trivia to keep us on our toes.   I can’t wait to come back so I can try all the different pizzas on the menu, they all sound incredible! 

This meal was complimentary, but all opinions are my own.

Is January really almost over???  How did that happen?!! 

How are those resolutions going??  Honestly I didn’t really make any…and I’m totally OK with that ;)


  1. The bacon & blue is my absolute favorite. :) It was so great to see you and catch up a little Wednesday night. The video of you is awesome!!

  2. Good idea to split slices with someone so you could try more! I wish i got to try the gouda and kale special!

  3. Ah! I love this flash mob stuff- you look so good! Rocking :) Youkkkkkk- what a fun event. And all the food and beer? So jealous. I want the Parmesan Flatbread. And I love the name tramp stamp! My only resolution was to take a picture of Kay every day- doing pretty well!

    This month has flown by!  Between New Year's, my 30th birthday and lots of wedding planning, this month has certainly been busy!

  5. So nice seeing you last week! We had such a nice night at Stone Hearth. And I love their meatballs too!

  6. It sounds like you had a great time! ^^ I don't make resolutions...but I'm sure mine would probably be broken by now! hehe

  7. Emily @ A Cambridge StoryJanuary 30, 2012 at 10:27 PM

    The special was definitely my favorite! Fun to see you that night :) 

  8. Definitely best idea ever going halfsies :)  My fav was the special, but kale has a way of winning me over!  Hope you got some rest after that crazy (fun) week!

  9. I absolutely adore Stone Hearth. Nice seeing you!

  10. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be at the internet the
    simplest factor to bear in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed
    at the same time as people consider worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , other folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

    suppose you composed a catchier post title? I ain't saying your content isn't good.

    , but what if you added a headline that grabbed a person's attention? I mean "Pizza & Beer at Stone Hearth" is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo's home
    page and watch how they write news titles to grab people to click.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to get people interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could bring your website a little livelier.

    coping reviews from competitive websites to
    show you have circulation and satisfied customers, your website is more likely
    to earn higher ranking in the major search
    engines. The more doors you have the more chances of people
    finding it. SEO (search engine optimization) and keyword density are terms that scare
    many a writer who want to write for the internet.
    Organic SEO uses valid and safe techniques to rank your site for its keyword.

    Meta Name and Meta Description Tags are two of the important ones.

    SEO companies may only offer this type of service.
    The World Wide Web is an incredible source of customers and potential revenue for all types of businesses and companies in all niches.
    However with passing time the complexity in this field has increased and performing an SEO task is not a simple thing to do.
