From an email:

“&pizza Columbia Heights will open this Thursday!”

14th and Spring Street, NW

and another reader reports:

“Just a heads up, the Columbia Heights Pizza D’oro on 14th and Spring Rd opened last week.”

    Seems like this &pizza went in rather quickly? What’s the hold up on the Barracks Row one?

      I came here to ask the same thing! I live two blocks away and haven’t seen any signs of progress.

    This is not a criticism of pizza, per se, but Columbia Heights was not exactly hurting for pizza joints before this, right? Between Pete’s right by the metro and Red Rocks on 11th for the high-end pizza connoisseurs, and Dominoes and Papa Johns on the north and south ends of the neighborhood for cheap eats, I’m not sure either of these places (both of which I’ve had pizza from and enjoyed) adds much to the neighborhood. Do we think this is saturating the neighborhood?

    No such thing as “too much pizza”.

    is pizza d’oro any good? The proximity makes me think they might be the only ones able to deliver my pizza while it’s still hot.

      I’d say it’s fair, nothing really special. Somebody famous said their buffalo chicken pizza is good, if you like that kind of thing. Sandwiches are good, but they increased their minimum order to $15, which is too spendy for my lunch, so I haven’t had one in a while.

        Found the reference: it was in the Posts’s 40 essential eats listicle.
        “Buffalo chicken pizza from Pizza D’Oro
        Selected by Thor Cheston, co-owner of Right Proper Brewing
        Cheston works at one of the city’s favorite spots for upscale bar food, but when his cravings skew more lowbrow, he phones Shaw’s humble Pizza D’Oro for a pie topped with ranch dressing, chicken and house-made hot sauce that makes this pizza taste like D’Oro’s wings. It’s Super Bowl Sunday food Cheston says he orders more than he should. He wrote: “I love pizza. I love chicken wings. This is the perfect combination of the two.””

      Pizza D’Oro is a great option for late night pies. People seem to really like their calzones too.
