There is nothing complicated about the pimento cheeseburger pizza on the menu at Terra in West Columbia, South Carolina. It has nothing on the house-made charcuterie, or the carefully ornamented plates of fish, steak, and poultry, or the salads that balance farm-fresh vegetables with vibrant dressings and smoky hunks of meat. But chef Mike Davis, who worked for years under famed Alabama chef Frank Stitt, has inherited his mentor’s knack for haute simplicity—and a bit of his playfulness, too. With what has become one of his signature offerings, Davis nods to his restaurant’s location just outside the pimento cheeseburger capital of the South. And although this pizza may be simple, we doubt that any of your party guests will mind.
