What’s a Rich Text element?

FGHFG

DDFGHDFGH

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Pizza is one of those timeless pleasures that people of all ages enjoy. Some people believe we love pizza because it reminds us of our inner teenager who ate carbs without regrets and had a lot of fun with no obligations other than going to school and maybe working a part-time job. Our taste connects with our brain, and we remember that teenager with a bite of a crunchy pepperoni pizza. The teenager that ordered a pizza when a friend stayed over, or when there was a potluck at school, or when the squad got together to study for the final exam. 

The truth is, we've been in a long-time relationship with pizza, and we don't seem to be letting it go any time soon. After all, the combination of flavors, textures, temperatures, and ingredients makes us like it even more and try new kinds of pizza that will let our inner teenager smile. Here are some of the places where you can get pizza around Merion Village, Ohio. 

Arch City Tavern

A nod to the history of Columbus

862 N High St, Columbus, OH 43215 | +1 614-725-5620 |  archcitytavern.com/

There are many ways to eat delicious pizza. Some people like to have it with an ice-cold soda, some others prefer a glass of wine, and still others prefer a refreshing beer. In Arch City Tavern, there is a great variety of craft beers with different textures, flavors, and colors. The happy hour is Monday to Friday from 3 pm to 6 pm, so enjoy your pizza with some of these delightful beers. If you are not a beer person, choose from the great selection of red and white wines or handcrafted cocktails. 

Now let's talk about the pizzas. The pizzas are stone-baked with high-quality ingredients that create an exciting combination of flavors. For instance, the Mediterranean pizza comes with kalamata olives, feta, buffalo mozzarella, roasted tomato, spinach, and roasted garlic.

Another great option is the Fig and Arugula Pizza, with black mission fig, prosciutto, pine nut, goat cheese, roasted garlic spread, and truffle-dressed fresh arugula. 

 When I lived in Columbus, I used to come here all the time. Their food is SO good!!! They have a pretty good draft list. Their blueberry mojito is amazing! They play good music. It's a good vibe all around!!! Yelp Review.

Donato's Pizza

One of the people's favorites

1000 Thurman Ave, Columbus, OH 43206 | +16144446823 | www.donatos.com

This restaurant offers a wide variety of red and white wines that will complement your pizza in a wonderful way. The famous large monster pizzas are not only delicious but also an excellent option for dinner during those nights when you don't feel like cooking or those weekends when all you want to do is watch the games. 

Complement your monster pizza with some delicious appetizers or salads to add that freshness of the veggies, with the pizza's crunchiness and warmth. If you happen to be near a Donato's around February, you might be lucky and see heart-shaped pizzas just in time for Valentine's Day. That's the ultimate romantic detail you can have with your beloved ones!

 The staff is very kind and attentive. The big window opening to the back shows more than just the pizza being made, but also how clean they keep the place. Yelp Review.

The Red Brick Tap & Grill

292 E Gates St, Columbus, OH 43206 | theredbricktapandgrill.com | +1 614-444-2742

This is a very nice local business where you can find really good food. The hand-tossed pizzas come with different ingredient combinations that you will love. For instance, The Black Magic Woman pizza comes with a BBQ sauce base, house-smoked pulled pork, bell peppers, red onions, jalapeños, pineapple, and mozzarella. One of the favorites is The Porky's Revenge, with chipotle ranch base, house-smoked pulled pork, pork belly, fried onions, fried jalapeños, mozzarella, and smoked gouda. 

There are screens in the restaurant where you can watch the games, and dining tables to chat with friends or family. With 30 different beers available on tap, the happy hour is Monday to Friday from 3 pm to 7 pm. Here, you will also find wines, liquors, and a variety of cocktails.

 I love the ambiance. There's an old school diner feel to this establishment, and it is chock full of fun photos and items of history on the walls for you to look at. There is plenty of seating, and they also have a great outdoor patio with a fire pit! Yelp Review.

Grandma's Pizza & Pasta

1242 Parsons Ave, Columbus, OH 43206 | +1 614-449-0777 | slicelife.com

This is one of the most popular pizza places for Merion Village residents, as it is very close to the heart of this neighborhood, and the place is very well known for its great service and delightful pizzas. Create your own pizza by choosing your favorite toppings, and try some side orders like the garlic cheese bread, the cheese sticks with home-style dipping sauce, or the french fries covered with cheese and bacon. This great pizza place offers outdoor seating, home delivery, and takeout orders. 

It is your typical thin crust Columbus-style pie. We got the veggie and the gyro pizzas, which were both delicious. Try it, you won't regret it. They are fast and friendly when ordering. Yelp Review.

Dawghouse Pizza & Bar

Pizza, beers, and football games

2031 Lockbourne Rd, Columbus, OH 43207 | +16144443294 | dawghousepizzaandbar.com

Dawghouse is a popular name in Merion Village. This is a place not only to have great pizza but also to enjoy the company of the people you love. There is a Game Day Special on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, and Saturday nights where you can order an XL pizza for the price of a large pizza. All pizzas come in four different sizes (small, medium, large, and extra-large), with the option of choosing your ingredients and building your own pizza.

However, specialty pizzas have an excellent reputation. Try the Taco Pizza with salsa, ground beef, provolone, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream, and jalapeños if you request them. On the other hand, the chicken fajita pizza comes with grilled chicken, smoked provolone, cheddar cheese, green peppers, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, and fajita seasonings. It all sounds too good to miss!

We have been ordering from here for lunch for several weeks, and I have yet to find a menu item I didn't like -- Everything is fantastic. Their pizzas are delicious with generous toppings. The prices are super reasonable, and their subs and meatballs are out of this world! Yelp Review.

Harvest Bar + Kitchen - Front Street

Freshness and locally made are guaranteed

940 S Front St, Columbus, OH 43206 | +1 614-947-7950 | harvestpizzeria.com/

The history of this local business starts in the heart of German Village with the idea of creating tasty food with locally sourced ingredients to support the community and deliver fresh meals. The mission remains relevant to the business as all the ingredients come from small farms and businesses that produce goods locally. Harvest now has six locations across Ohio and makes pizzas with a crunchy texture and a mixture of fresh flavors.

For instance, the Monaco pizza comes with arrabbiata sauce, a blend of mozzarella and provolone cheese, salami Toscano, capicola, pepperoni, fennel sausage, bacon, pecorino, and herbed chili oi. And even though the concept of creating your own pizza is not new, this place takes it to the next level by offering eight different house-made sauces for the pizza base. This includes the classic tomato and the roasted garlic sauce. Some others like vegan almond pesto, olive oil, spiked chipotle tomato, arrabbiata, and peppercorn ricotta. The locally sourced meats include beef, chicken, seafood, and vegan proteins, so there are a lot of options to choose from!

Great food as always. The space is really nice inside and still with a good amount of capacity available even with social distancing policies. Yelp Review.

A fascinating experience worth sharing with others

197 Thurman Ave, Columbus, OH 43206 | +1 614-826-0491 | southvillagegrille.com

With a Modern American cuisine inspired by European cooking techniques, this restaurant is part of the larger family that includes Local Cantina, Old Skool, Local Bar, SIP Local, The Rossi Kitchen and Bar, and Jonys Sushi. 

The pizzas can be cooked with cauliflower crust if you request it and are made with gourmet ingredients that are fresh and rich in flavor. Some of the great options are the Burrata pizza that comes with prosciutto, arugula, balsamic glaze, and burrata, or the Shrooms pizza, with pesto, shiitake, oyster, caramelized onions, pecorino, and mozzarella cheese. Take a look at the drinks menu when you order your pizza to see the variety of draft beers, crafted drinks, wines, and cocktails that this place offers. Many of them are seasonal, so they will update them with the trendiest flavors of the season. It is definitely a great option for a special occasion!

We sat at the bar and ordered the Ohio Pepperoni Pizza. It had pomodoro, basil, pepperoni and chile infused honey. It had a slight kick, and gave it an awesome sweetness that really complimented the other ingredients. I'd order it again in a heartbeat. I'm actually kind of craving it now, time to go eat the leftovers. Yelp Review.

17 S High St, Columbus, OH 43215 | +16147541459 | pizzarustica-columbus.com

If you are craving for pizza, but the number of carbs and fats is stopping you, this is a great option for you. All pizzas are made with extra virgin olive oil, the healthiest of all olive oils. There are no trans fats, the tomato sauce comes with no chemicals, added citric acid, and sugar, and the pizzas come with only fresh herbs, like basil and rosemary.

Enjoy the Chicken Alla Florentina with natural boneless chicken breast marinated with Alfredo sauce, baby spinach, sweet red onions, diced Roma tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and jalapeño peppers. one of these pizzas without guilt. Also, there are specialty pizzas like the Putanesca, with Kalamata olives, jalapeños, red onions, pepperoni, imported Sicilian anchovies, tomato sauce, and mozzarella cheese. Complement your order with a fresh salad that will balance the warmth and crunchiness of the pizza with a refreshing and crispy texture. 

This place is amazing! Delivery through GrubHub, you'd expect it to be horrible! But nope! The taste, the sauce, large slices! I love it, and now I have to visit in person! Yelp Review.

Whether you are going to eat by yourself or with friends or family, there is a great place for you around Merion Village.
