I recently took a nice drive down to Dulles, VA and the great things always find you when you aren’t looking. Well, maybe I looked a little. While I was here, I investigated any nearby places in the area and to my pleasure, I found a gift from the universe.
Everything about Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint is done right. The food, the staff, the images on the walls, and the overall energy of this place, make this a can’t miss. I can’t say enough good things about the overall presentation.
But most importantly, how is the pizza? Well what I ordered will go down as one of my favorites.
The set up here is of the assembly line variety. You can order a custom pizza or create your own! The concept is simple, but for a pizza, could be hit or miss. This is a certifiable hit.
With their plethora of menu options, I opted for the Portobello Pesto. And I’m so happy I did. This is a masterpiece. I ordered this with the Whole Wheat Dough, and that was a call I’m grateful for. What a wonderful tasting pita style flat bread. It really complemented the pizza well.
Maybe there’s a bias, but this pie is a culmination of some of my favorite toppings. The pesto, feta, portabella and white mushrooms, tomatoes, and basil all come together for something so simple, yet so wonderful. I was happy to read that their dough is made in-house and that their vegetables are local and delivered every morning. No wonder everything tasted so fresh! And the energy and love behind the making of this was obvious.
I say love, because that’s what’s promoted throughout the shoppe. Since I was a newbie, that staff was happy to help with suggestions and explain how the whole process works. They were patient and never seemed in a rush, as on this day, there was a bit of a line. But they kept it moving, while all the while grateful to help every customer the same.
Sometimes the pizza is enhanced by how great the customer service was. And this is near the top, on both levels. The positive vibrations put it over the top. The theme is love and love is a good thing.
I’d never heard of this place until last week. I see it’s a chain that is growing in popularity. If you’re every in the Dulles area, I strongly recommend eating here!
I wish them all the success and I can’t wait to try another inspiring item!
All The Best,
