Bacon + pizza + wine = dinner at Jockamo

Feb 12th, 2014 | by Eat Drink Indy | News, Restaurants, Wine & Spirits

Now here’s a wine dinner that’s definitely not stuffy. Jockamo Upper Crust Pizza will be hosting a $30-per-person wine dinner Feb.24 at its Greenwood location at 401 Market Plaza. Pizza…wine. Sounds good, right?


Did I mention the menu is called “An Ode to Bacon?”

Jockamo will be sampling the wines of Goldschmidt Vineyards to complement what general manager Josh Smith called “an entirely bacon-inspired menu.”

From bacon jelly to bacon and crab dip to chocolate-covered bacon, the much-loved meat will make plenty of appearances. And why not, said Smith. “I love bacon,” he said, “and as an ingredient, it  can be the star of the show, as well as a great accompanying role too. I love that I’m able to be as creative with the menu as possible and try and use ingredients found in our kitchen.”

The menu includes an appetizer of scratch-made jambalaya plus entrees of smoked gouda apple melt with bacon jelly, pesto BLT and bacon and crab dip pizza. But don’t miss dessert — it’s caramel bread pudding topped with chipotle and chocolate-covered bacon.

The dinner is at 7 p.m. Feb. 24; RSVP by Feb. 21 to or call 317-883-8993.
