&pizza - Washington DC

NEPA goes to DC!

I know that I'm the NEPA Pizza Review, but I couldn't resist going on a pizza binge on a recent family trip to Washington DC!  After walking miles and miles, I found DC didn't have the quantity of pizzerias that New York City had, but with some heavy walking and metro use, I was able to hit quite a few spots.  Yes I felt totally gross after eating all that pizza (including 5 different pizzas in less than 3 hours!), but I felt an obligation to keep going so that I could report back to the 570 to let you know how our pizza stacks up against our nation's capital.

As soon as I walked into And Pizza for the first time, I was 50% excited and 50% bummed out because I have had the idea to operate a fast-casual (Subway/Chipoltle/Moe's/Quizno's) type pizzeria for several years now, and I know it would be a successful business model.  I was bummed because until I traveled, I didn't know such a thing existed but I guess it was only a matter of time until someone started making money off of it!  I was excited to see how the whole thing worked.  I saw the dough was fresh and ready to be pressed out onto a screen.  All the ingredients, including various sauces, cheeses, toppings, and toppings to top off the toppings were all there for me to choose from.  I wanted to keep my pizza fairly standard, so I went with the traditional sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, romano cheese, and sausage and pepperoni.  The pizza was ready in about 3 minutes and popped into a box for me to enjoy.  It was fast, and I have to admit, it was very good.  I enjoyed the heck out of it as the flavors were all pretty wonderful and authentic.  The texture of the dough was satisfying, but was missing some crispness and crunch.  I doubt that can be acheived in a conveyor oven anyway, but for a 3 minute pizza freshly made to order, I'd call this a success.  I see &pizza is already rapidly expanding into other areas in the northeast and I predict they will quickly sweep the nation because this model is set up for success.  The other cool thing is that they create their own unique fountain sodas which were all very different and tasty.  Overall, I'd recommend you give this a try because it's a pretty cool experience - one that is sure to be popular with the millennial crowd.
