Blind Tiger Dishes Divine Pizza in Maplewood 

February 25, 2014
The hand-tossed, New York-style pizza is where Blind Tiger excels. We tried three of the four specialty pies (there is also a build-your-own option), and they were all excellent. The “Bolo” was topped with a sausage and beef Bolognese sauce, and there was a generous amount of meat in every bite, finished with housemade ricotta. The “Soldier of Four-Cheese” was a beautiful marriage of pizza and cheesy garlic bread. The sage brown-butter base was topped with ricotta, mozzarella, Parmigiano Reggiano and American cheeses, then generously sprinkled with smoked garlic. Blind Tiger’s signature pizza is the “Hog Mess,” a mélange of pepperoni, salami, bacon and sausage with a spicy rib-braise sauce. The pizza sears with serious spice from jalapeños, pepperoncini, red peppers and smoked garlic. It could have been overwhelming, but the chunks of juicy pineapple gave a burst of refreshment when I was ready to cry “uncle.”
