FireworksAt Fireworks we use only the best ingredients available to us at all times. Whenever possible, we use organic produce and humanely raised meat and poultry from small local producers. Our cheeses are all whole milk cow, goat and sheep cheeses from Vermont and Italy and we use San Marzano tomatoes. You will taste the difference in what we use and how we cook it. Our guiding principle is to make wonderful simple food that highlights the natural flavors of these quality ingredients. The unique heat produced in our 700 degree stone oven releases rich, dynamic flavors from our thin crust pizza and many other dishes. With great food, we hope to offer you great service in a friendly, comfortable and unpretentious environment.
