Blue Dog Pizza in So. Lake Tahoe
(original from Feb of 2008)
Lake Tahoe has a plethora of motels and restaurants. But how many times have we all chosen the easy casino buffet instead of checking out one of the other local establishments? Myself, I think buffets are a waste for my small appetite and the food is mediocre. I want to eat well!
So on our recent snowmobiling weekend we stumbled upon Blue Dog Pizza. If you are tied to casinos, this is within walking distance—at the Raleys shopping center next to Heavenly Village. They will also deliver.
Blue Dog only makes one size pie—14 inches, but their combos are creative and delicious. My friend tends to stick to Hawaiian, but I’m more adventurous. I chose the Hair of the Dog, which had pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon, lots of garlic, jalapenos, and chilis. We couldn’t stop talking about the pizza all weekend! The crust was wonderful and the toppings generous.
My friend likes Hawaiians because of the pineapple. I told him next time he’ll have to try the Thai chicken pizza—peanut sauce, chicken, pineapple, red peppers, snow peas, and sesame seeds.
There are other menu items as well. They can make calzones, chicken wings, salads, and paninis. So, next time you are up at Stateline, be sure and go for the great pizza!
