1. Barbecue Chicken
This is by far the best pizza in the DC. It’s smoky, savory, melt-in-your-mouth, take-five-slices-home-in-a-takeout-box good. Crumbled feta cheese from the salad bar pairs well with the barbecue sauce and fried onions on this pizza.
2. Smoked Gouda and Onion
I could honestly eat an entire pie of this pizza because it’s just that good. The creamy, salty flavor of the gouda combined with the sweetness of the sautéed onions is heavenly. Make sure to grab more than one slice, as this pizza goes quickly.
Who knew that avocados belonged on pizza? Peppers, avocados, and oregano are sprinkled on top of a cheese pizza to make this masterpiece. A drizzle of pesto from the salad bar on this pizza is definitely a must.
4. Buffalo Chicken
Spicy, tangy deliciousness. If you like chicken wings, then this is the pizza for you. Grab a slice from the hot bar and drizzle blue cheese dressing from the salad bar on top to send this pizza over the edge.
5. Chicken Caesar Salad
Salad and pizza collide here to make one of the wackiest, yet tastiest pizza flavors in the DC. Don’t knock it ’til you try it. The caesar dressing is what really makes this pizza so good. Sprinkle bacon bits from the salad bar on top because bacon makes everything better.
6. Pico de Gallo
Simple, yet satisfying. Although the pizza only has tomatoes and onions as its toppings, it’s a go-to for any Haverford student. To spice up your pizza, try adding any of the toppings from the Cantina Bar (now served every day at lunch) or the Fajita Bar (every Monday night). Or just a dash of red pepper flakes from the spice rack.
It’s a classic. Tomato, basil, and mozzarella cheese come together to make the ultimate pizza. A drizzle of olive oil on top will almost make you feel like you’re in Italy instead of scarfing down lunch at the DC in between classes…almost.
8. Cheddar and Broccoli
Cheddar and broccoli go together like peanut butter and jelly so it’s only natural that the two belong on a pizza. Broccoli is also a vegetable so you should probably grab a few slices for lunch or dinner to make sure you’re getting the recommended daily serving of vegetables (which is 2 1/2 cups).
You can never go wrong with pepperoni. What’s great about the pepperoni pizza in the DC is that it’s served at most meals. If you don’t like what’s offered at the hot bar one night, chances are you can fall back on pepperoni pizza.
Once again the DC combines two unlikely foods: hamburgers and pizza. Tomatoes, lettuce, and ground beef are sprinkled across a plain cheese pizza. If you’re feeling adventurous, maybe try drizzling ketchup or mustard on top for a true hamburger pizza experience (and let me know how it turns out).
