Being from NJ I am really picky when it comes to pizza. After hearing many rave reviews about &pizza my family and I decided to give it a try.
We traveled to the North Bethesda, Maryland &pizza location located in the new development, Pike & Rose. We are huge fans of Pike & Rose as it not only features a lovely selection of restaurants but amazing shops as well. In fact we did much of our back to school shopping there this year.
We planned to stop in &pizza and get our pizza to go but the atmosphere and ambiance were so inviting at Pike & Rose, we decided to sit and enjoy the meal there.
My two children decided on plain cheese pizzas, while my husband ordered the Moonstruck Pizza (mushroom truffle, garlic ricotta, mozzarella, mushroom, grilled onion, goat cheese, fig balsamic) and I ordered the Gnarlic (garlic ricotta, mozzarella, grilled onion, pesto, garlic sauce, parmesan). We also decided to order the Lori Lane, a dessert pizza (white chocolate sauce, berries, sweet ricotta, agave syrup).
If you think the descriptions of these pizzas sound delicious you should try them. Oh my goodness. No wonder why the Washington Post Express voted &pizza the ‘BEST of DC’ in 2014 and 2015!
Not only are the pizzas delicious but they are the perfect individual size. The crust is perfect, the toppings plentiful and the handmade ricotta to die for. My children, my husband and I all loved our pizzas. I am a HUGE garlic lover so I LOVED the Gnarlic (just a warning–don’t talk to people for a few days after eating it).
Oh and pizza isn’t all they have–are you a soda lover? &pizza also offers housemade craft sodas and & tea?
Those are just as delicious!
So when you are in the neighborhood be sure to stop by &pizza at Pike and Rose and then shop to your hearts content at the nearby stores Gap, Nike Factory Outlet, Francesca’s and more!
