Wi-Pie Pizza Restaurant
I was out for a walk the other day, however, and a slice of pizza (or two) sounded like a great lunch. I noticed quite a few people in Wi Pie. I didn't know anything about the place, but I figured with all those customers, at the very least the pizza would be fresh.
It was kind of a clusterf**k inside, there was no rhyme or reason to the way they were taking orders. So, when I felt everyone who was already there before me had ordered, I elbowed my way to the front of the counter and loudly placed my order: one slice of Margherita, one barbecue chicken. Into the oven my two slices went.
The Margherita was a first for me: it had Parmesan cheese on it. I've never seen (or, I suppose tasted) it that way. At first bite it was distracting. But as I got closer to the edge of the crust, where the tomato sauce was concentrated, I kind of liked the way the cheese contrasted with the sweet sauce. The best Margherita I've ever had was from Totonno's in Manhattan, many years ago, long before I had a blog. The worst Margherita was a frozen one from Whole Foods. Wi Pie's is right in the middle.
The crust at Wi Pie was quite good and they reheated it for the perfect amount of time. So I would certainly have no problem returning (although I would just stick with plain cheese on my next visit). But I'm not in any hurry to, and if I never do, oh well.
