If you find yourself wandering around downtown Abilene looking for something good to eat, you need not wander far. Vagabond pizza is right around the corner. What makes this place so great you may ask? Well for starters the front of the restaurant is quite inviting. Who can resist the visual appeal of a large two colored sign that displays the word Vagabond in bold red letters?
So what makes Vagabond different from any other pizza joints? Well, for starters, they cook all of their pizzas fresh using a wood-fired oven. I think this is the way pizza was meant to be cooked. There are just so many things to appreciate about having a pizza cooked in this type of oven. For one, the oven enhances the flavor of the pizza. You get a little bit of that smokiness from the wood, not overpowering, but rather just the right amount. This is something you won’t get at some fast food pizza place or even in your own home making a pizza from scratch unless you want to put fresh logs in your oven and light a fire…I don’t recommend that.
