Community Pizza is a new restaurant in Wimberley, but has become such a fine watering hole and gathering spot that it feels like it’s always been here. With authentic wood-fired pizzas, fresh salads, a sumptuous beer selection, and live music, it has become a welcoming place to find and build community.
Michael and Morgan Mekuly, have worked in food and hospitality all their adult lives, and Community Pizza is the the fruition of their skill and creativity. I first met Morgan at the Wimberley Farmers market where she became a fan of our lettuce mix for their family table. After talking with Michael we agreed that heirloom tomatoes would be a good fit for their fresh garden ingredient pizzas, and they are our largest buyer of fresh basil. Conventional basil available for restaurant wholesale is about 50% stems, so staff has to strip the leaves away before using it. We harvest only the bud tips of our basil, and so it is all tender and ready for processing into fresh pesto.
One of my favorite things to do on delivery days is to drop off our product, and ask them to let me drop back by to pick up the check. When I stop by on my way back to the farm, I can count on taking a brief break with a nice cold, freshly pulled, glass of refreshment.
