Tried out the debut Thursday Pizza Delicious production last night. We've been wanting to try it, but going out to the Bywater for to-go items has not been so appealing, especially since MVB is serving burgers right in our 'hood that same night.
We ordered their special pie: "MARINATED SPICY HOLLYGROVE BABY KALE pie on which you can add HOT SOPPRESSATA" which we, in fact did do.
We got the pizza, a salad, and 2 slices of king cake, which is made by one of the pizza stretchers there at PD.
It was really, really, really... excellent. Spicy from the soppressata and the kale, the crunchiness and earthiness of the kale, the crust, the sauce... simple and, dare I say, delicious. I actually don't love red sauce pizza so much (heresy, I know!) but I liked this a lot. The salad was also fantastic- baby greens, kalamata olives, roasted red pepper, yellow cherry tomatoes, pickled onions- perfect.
King cake was doughy and soft, which was a feature for me and a bug for Tom.
I had the last 2 pieces of pizza warmed in the oven for lunch today, and it heated up wonderfully. This may be a new Thursday tradition!
Interestingly, they are super precise about when you pick up the pizza. We got there early at around 6:15 and I was told that our pizza wouldn't be ready till 6:24. I was told on the phone that it would be 6:27, so I guess someone cancelled an order or something? In New Orleans, it is rare to find exact timing like that, so it amused me and pleased my Virgo tendencies.
