Is there really anything better than pizza? It’s tough going to a restaurant with all of your friends and not agreeing on the toppings that are about to be piled onto your pie. If you’re in D.C., Maryland, Pennsylvania, or Virginia and you want great pizza that won’t break the bank, &pizza is for you.
Personalized pizzas are ready in 10 minutes or less and you can’t complain about that. Fast-casual restaurants are all the rage and it’s about time that a fast-casual pizza shop came around. Here’s why you won’t regret going to &pizza.
1. Personalized Pizza
Each individual pizza can be personalized with whatever toppings you want, and no one is going to judge you for it. You can even have two different kinds of sauces if you want. With options ranging from classic tomato to garlic ricotta and basil pesto, there’s no way you can go wrong.
2. Fresh Ingredients
All of the ingredients at &pizza are MSG-free, so you don’t have to worry if you’d prefer to avoid it. Their dough is organic and fresh produce is locally sourced for toppings. Throughout the year, you’ll see a variety of vegetables available based on the season, so you’re always sure to get fresh produce to top off your pizza.
3. Housemade Craft Sodas
If you’re looking for a Coke or Pepsi, you’re going to have a hard time finding it here. &pizza prides itself on their housemade soda, which, like their dough, is made from organic ingredients. You can choose from their various craft sodas such as Ginger Berry Lemonade, Dark Cherry Cola, Mango and Passion Fruit, Pear and Fig Elixir, Cherry Bomb, or Burdock and Anise Root Beer. If you’re looking for a great twist on a classic drink, you’ll love the Ginger Berry Lemonade, but all of the sodas pair nicely with pizza.
4. Polite Employees
The first time I went into an &pizza, I was greeted with smiles and friendly faces from every employee. I felt welcomed from the beginning to the end of my time eating there. &pizza’s core values are to make it personal, elevate everything, keep it fresh, and celebrate oneness. The employees take pride in working at &pizza and want to make sure that you enjoy your meal and dining experience.
5. Kickass Interior Design and Color Scheme
By keeping it simple, &pizza creates a fun environment for their guests. The black and white color scheme leaves creativity to the consumer, and makes the minimalist’s heart happy. Besides, you don’t want to be distracted while eating your personalized pizza.
If you’re not in the mood for one of their sodas, &pizza offers tea too. &Tea is the pizza joint’s housemade tea. These teas are definitley not your grandmother’s teas. Lemongrass White Peach, Sweet Mint, Peach Ginger, and Spiced Thai tea offer sweet and natural flavors in every cup.
7. Badass Swag
Just because you finish your pizza doesn’t mean you won’t have anything to take home with you. &pizza sells swag items with huge ‘&’ symbols on them. The black and white color scheme of the restaurant and its simplicity carry through to their entire brand.
The next time you’re in D.C., Maryland, Pennsylvania, or Virginia, stop by &pizza to create your own personalized, perfect bite.
