Edible Landscaping at Nomad Pizza

I feel really lucky to be able to walk to an edible landscaping project in Hopewell Borough that is an active part of the slow food movement in our Princeton region.  Nomad Pizza makes divine wood burning pizza five nights a week with basil, salad greens, and garlic grown right here in raised beds next to the restaurant! The pizza artisans work with local farmers for cheese and go organic whenever possible. Nomad Pizza also has a vintage 1949 REO Speedwagon truck that will bring their pizza to you and your party if you wish,  complete with a mobile wood burning oven or cooked on site in their Stefano Ferrara oven. 
The garden space has easily become a favorite place for local Hopewellians, Princetonites and all of Amwell Valley to mingle. Local artisans are showing off a lovely fountain with fish, a sculptural art piece infused with plants, and a nifty garden. I love this seasonal wreath and the lovely winter tree that was decorated along with the trellises all ablaze in white lights. The owners are as much a part of the experience as their delicious fresh pizza. After one of the owners returned from Rome, they offered the super thin pizza he found on his travels. Warm, inviting and full of charm, one feels like part of the family while dining. Tasting the terroir of Hopewell is a special gift, and they share it with us, naturally.


  1. Ah slow food, yum. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

  2. How lucky you are to have this in your community!

  3. I love it! Nothing is better than growing your own food! Great peace sign too...
