Thanks to a reader for sending from L Street, NW between 18th and 19th. Veloce by Pizzeria Paradiso “Custom Brick Oven Pizza” Spring 2015. Ed. Note: This is around the corner from another quick service pizza DC Pizza which opened Nov. 13th at 1103 19th Street, NW.
Aroma Pizzeria opened up in the former Italy Pizza space back in Nov. 2013. I stopped in for a slice over the weekend and was told they got a new owner and while they will of course keep the pizza – they plan on adding more options like kabobs. The space will remain primarily carryout. Stay tuned for the new menu when it’s finalized.

From a press release:
“Typically, local farmers use the spent grain soaked during the brewing process from DC Brau to feed their livestock. But each year during the holidays, the brewery teams up with Pizzeria Paradiso to do something a little more special with that grain.
For the 4th year in a row, the brewery and the pizzeria have baked more than 200 loaves of Brewer’s Grain bread to donate to Bread for the City (www.breadforthecity.org) to feed the less fortunate among us during the Thanksgiving holiday. DC Brau’s Brandon Skall and Jennifer Jackson made the first of two deliveries of this year’s donation earlier today (pictures attached).
Also, from this Friday through Christmas, the public will be able to buy a special Brewer’s grain pizza at any of the 3 local Pizzeria Paradiso locations that use DC Brau’s spent grain in the crust. $2 from each pie will go to benefit Bread for the City.”
Wiseguy NY Pizza opened up back in November of 2012 at 4th and H St, NW. I didn’t want to interupt the meal but Justice Scalia seemed pleased. For those who’ve never been – this is some of the best, if not the best, pizza by the slice in the District.
“Lightening fast and incredibly delicious pizza newcomer, DC Pizza, will be treating customers to a free four topping pizza and a soft drink to commemorate the restaurant’s arrival in the Golden Triangle. Patrons will get to pick from a wide variety of fresh and authentic toppings to customize their creations. Plus the first 20 customers in line at 11AM will receive free pizza for a year!
“We are thrilled to invite the neighborhood in to see how great our pizza is” said Lisa Lakin, founder of DC Pizza. “Customers will be blown away by how fast we make these amazingly tasty pies.”
