Piola Pizza

Something you’ll learn at Piola is that it’s possible to make pizza in a gajillion different ways — including topped with eggs.

I went there recently and ordered the Moderna (tomato sauce, mozzarella, arugula, fresh tomatoes and shaved parmesan cheese). Very fresh and cheesy. I’m a fan of thin salty crusts, so there were no complaints there but it was a little heavy on the tomatoes.

I was more intrigued by the restaurant than the food. There are only four locations in the U.S. and the remaining establishments are in Italy, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Mexico, and Turkey. When I go back, I’m going to take advantage of their awesome specials: every Mon-Wed, all pizzas between 3 – 4 p.m. are $5, between 4 – 5 p.m. are $6 and between 5 – 6 p.m. are $7.

Though, I have to say, for THE most mouthwatering pizza in the DC area, go to Matchbox in Chinatown or The Italian Store in Arlington. I can bet you’ll never crave any other pizza again.

What’s your favorite pizza joint?
