I came here excitedly with Elephant for our dinner run, this was located really close to Michaels in the Poco Mall. Inside, it was quite busy for 8pm and we actually had to wait in line.

They had a large selection of toppings to go with your pizza and you get to choose sizes. We got a regular 11" pizza ($8.95, small is 9" for $6.95). I forgot exactly which toppings I got, but definitely not all of them! I got white sauce, mozzarella cheese, chicken, bacon, Italian sausage, pepperoni (on half), anchovies (on half), olives, artichoke, tomatoes, mushrooms and zucchini. Overall the pizza was too burnt on the sides, and the ingredients too salty-- especially the Italian sausage, sauce, along with the anchovies. I liked the presentation of the pizza and service was wonderful at the store-- though my combination of ingredients and baking of the pizza was underwhelming.

Their stone oven was visible and I liked the clean, simple layout they had, but ingredients need a bit of work. Looking forward to improvements, considering they're only one month old (happy one month!!).

  1. Those prices aren't bad! Hopefully they get a chance to read your review and make some changes! It'd be interesting to see if you go back in the future and see if things have improved :)
