When Pizza Friendly Pizza opened in the recent weeks, its team knew they would face unique challenges. So they took preemptive steps to keep their customers as safe as possible. That includes limiting walk-up service to a takeout window, which opens onto a socially distanced patio, and making takeout as easy as possible.
That being said, the dough for their Sicilian crust relies on a fermentation process that can produce widely varied results—so snagging a full pie for pickup is never a guarantee. But if you want to throw your hat in the ring, order ahead online and then wait for the notification that you’ve lucked out. The pies are pricey ($33 each), but patrons say they’re well worth the cost thanks to the perfect crust, high-quality ingredients, and exemplary craftsmanship.
Try the classic pepperoni pie with fresh basil and burrata, or treat yourself to the unusual rapini and lemon pie with smoked black pepper. Walk up for a slice of the supreme pizza or grab a square loaded with spicy soppressata, roasted corn, green onions, and pickled chili flakes. The eatery also offers overstuffed sandwiches that one patron describes as “the real deal.”
