Review: &Pizza

If you are looking for mouthwatering pizza, fresh ingredients, a one of a kind menu, amazing customer service, and unlimited toppings at a cheap price, &Pizza is the place for you.
I first heard about &Pizza over the summer, but I never actually tried it until a couple weeks ago. Going in for the first time I thought it was just going to be average tasting pizza; I was terribly wrong. It might not be the greatest pizza I have ever had in my life, but, it is definitely up there.
The best part about &Pizza is that it appeals to anyone. You could be the pickiest person out there and still find something for you there. The reason for this is the format of the restaurant. Similar to the way you make a burrito bowl at Chipotle or a sandwich at Subway, you make your pizza from scratch, allowing you to customize it as much as you want.
They do have some specialty pizzas on their menu, but the “Craft Your Own,” is by far the most popular pick. From the moment you begin your pizza, you have many options. From the type of dough used, to the sauce and  ingredients. They also have gluten free and vegetarian options available for dough and toppings.
Even better, they do not charge you per topping. A whole pizza and a fountain drink will cost you about twelve dollars. Speaking of fountain drinks, &Pizza has a very unique choice of drinks. Instead of Coke or Sprite, they have their own “homemade” options. I will warn you though, they are not the best drinks out there because of their unusual flavor combinations like their pear and fig elixir.
If you love pizza, you have to go try &Pizza. If you are ever in D.C. you can easily find a restaurant nearby. If you are not near D.C. they have a location in Rockville down the street from the Montrose Shopping Center, and another in Bethesda and Gaithersburg.
