If you are looking for a tantalizing and unique pizza dining experience, look no further than Kaleidoscope Pizzeria & Pub in Medford. Many already know about this popular establishment; on our inaugural visit, the parking lot was packed; still, we were seated almost immediately. One of the first things we noticed was the décor: entertaining, eclectic and enjoyable. Much of our dinner conversations revolved around the diverse light fixtures and other artistic glass elements found around the restaurant. We ordered the Mozzarella Bread Sticks with the House sauce (half marinara, half pesto; a must-try delectable treat) as our starter. When they arrived…let’s just say that you get much more than a “starter” portion, as we ended up taking some of them home; otherwise we wouldn’t have had room for dinner. These cheesesticks seemed easily over a foot long apiece, and there were about eight to ten on the plate. . . . and to top it off, they were DELICIOUS! They were heavily-laden with mozzarella and baked to a soft yet crispy perfection. Yum!
After much deliberation and consideration, we finally decided on the Prosciutto Blue pizza. This treat comes with Prosciutto ham, roma tomatoes, gorgonzola, artichoke hearts, garlic and olive oil (although we substituted marinara for the garlic and olive oil sauce). We were not disappointed by this salty, yet spicy combination of flavors. Our favorite characteristics of the pizza were its bountiful crust and generous amount of toppings.
As we were dining, we looked around at other table’s orders (who doesn’t?). We look forward to returning so that we can try their many delicious-looking soups, salads, tortillas and desserts. All of these items appeared fresh, were thoughtfully presented and smelled great! Their pizza menu is diverse, including quality, flavorful options sure to please every palate. Also, be sure to check out their selection of beers and wines (we did!). They proudly serve Ashland’s own, Caldera Beer, as well as many other local favorites. For the oenophiles out there, they offer a wine selection of over 100 unique varieties available by the
glass or bottle from local and regional wineries.
All in all, Kaleidoscope comes highly recommended from these two self-proclaimed pizza connoisseurs. For those of you (like me) who needed it, now you have another reason to visit Medford. You’re welcome.
