City Editor Jordan here — I’m a big believer of pizza as the great equalizer. Whether you’re a five-year-old at a birthday party or a C-suite executive finishing a long day at work — pizza probably sounds delicious.
In the Farm-to-Fork Capital, there’s no shortage of pizzerias to choose from. Here’s a list of seven we recommend.
Uncle Vito’s Slice of NY, 1800 15th St., Ste. E
Its location across the street from Ace of Spades paired with a late night happy hour make Uncle Vito’s perfect for a post-concert pit stop — not to mention they offer what can only be referred to as “Costco-sized” slices.
Curry Pizza House, Locations vary
Classic Indian flavors work with incredible pizza crusts and some serious amounts of cheese to give us savory and spicy delights such as the Chicken Tikka pizza — made with garlic sauce, chicken tikka, cilantro, tomatoes, and red and green onions.
Giovanni’s Old World New York Pizzeria, Locations vary
Stop by for lunch Monday-Saturday to snag two slices and a soda for $10.99 — maybe even add on a bucket of beers if the rest of your day looks open. We’re not here to tell you how to live your life.
Pizzasaurus Rex, 2322 K St.
In addition to multiple vegan options, the menu also includes the tantalizing potato pizza — a white sauce pie of incredible crust topped with potatoes (duh), onions, garlic, parsley, and sun-dried tomatoes.
Buffalo Pizza and Ice Cream Co., 2030 10th St.
Besides traditional pies (and ice cream, as implied by the name) Buffalo also serves up breakfast pizzas — a mouth-watering combo of scrambled eggs and cheese topped with a variety of meats or veggies.
Masullo Pizza, 2711 Riverside Blvd.
Masullo is known for its Neopolitan-style pies that are wood-fired to near-perfection — like the prosciutto-topped Mustapha — along with a small selection of other Italian dishes.
