The title make not sense at first, but the culinary joy sure does.
Over a month ago, I somehow find myself in the interesting locale known as Crystal City, VA. The circumstances leading me here were a bit bizarre but that’s the joy of life. You don’t always know how you end up at a certain places but at that very moment this is where you were supposed to be.
This brings me to We, The Pizza. And I loved it. With what was going on in the air that day and the gross weather, this was the comforting food that I needed. You can tell in one of the photos that it was a gross and dreary day.
When it’s blah out I (or we) don’t always make the most rationale or educated of decisions. Our axis might be a bit off. I admit I was very off this day so what I chose to order might have seemed clumsy at first. But I nailed it. They nailed it.
I’ll say this though, the location is not the most approachable. The D.C. area does bring an energy at times that doesn’t encourage that. But that by no means will cloud my judgement on this or any other area order. I think I’ve beaten around the bush enough.
I surveyed their eclectic menu and after much deliberating I went with the Cajun Chicken & Andouille as my first choice. Second but no least was the Forest Shroomin’ Slice.
Aside from the cheese which is $3, every slice on their menu is $4. And for the location and what I was eating this was a bargain.
Off the bat, the crust was cooked on each immaculately. I am reminiscing now about how great it was. It had a genuine taste to it. Maybe it was the oven, maybe it was the perfect amount of charring and heating, or maybe it was the folks and the energy behind the cooking. So good.
The free-range chicken and chicken andouille sausage come together perfectly. Neither one imposes on the other and the toppings complement one another well. This may have been the first time I had this type of sausage, but oh my goodness this was a winner. I could have multiple slices of these. The cajun seasonings brought just enough of a kick and spice to make this a winner. This is a great pie.
The forest shroomin’ was a random choice and luck was on my side again. This will sound like a dig at first but it tasted like a cream of mushroom pizza poured on top of a pizza. And I loved every second of it. The thyme may be what really makes this slice. I love mushroom so this is something I would definitely get again. This may not be a slice for everyone but that’s the fun in pizza adventures. There’s so much to choose from.
Look how cozy these slices are next to each other? They’re akin to being best buds.
I would be foolish not to mention that entertaining pictures adorning the walls and the mens room. I’ve said it before but any pizzeria that has their own to go box gets many brownie points. I love that touch. And now for your viewing pleasure:
I will be back. I just don’t know when. I had a pleasurable time here and the patrons who seemed to be in a rush were in good spirits. Either that or I tuned all the negativity out. The staff was very cordial too. I enjoyed myself.
They have a Washington, DC location I’d like to check out sometime too!
All I needed to turn a strange start to a day around was focus on something positive. I discovered a great new pizza place and the dominoes fell from there.
That’s where the hand over heart comes in. I was in a place of tranquility, along with feeling full and happy. That’s all I needed.
Thanks so much and Happy Thanksgiving in advance!
