    Totally down to try new pizza. Anyone know the difference between this place and &Pizza down the road?

    Warm bread, sauce, melty cheese = Trinity of tasty.

      The difference is in the bread and choice of toppings. Pidzza uses Turkish pide bread rather than regular pizza dough, hence the name. If it’s anything like it’s served in Istanbul, it’ll be delicious. I’m very excited to try this place, I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

        Don’t hold your breath, unless my experience in Ivy City was on an exceptionally off-day. The only similarity to pide was the vaguely-pointy ends to what otherwise could have been an &Pizza. The staff wasn’t familiar with the Turkish ingredients listed on the menu and said they didn’t have any available. But they did offer me ranch dressing that had been sitting on the counter in a small cup since before we came in, so maybe that’s caught on as a hot new trend in Turkey?

          Oh weird. That’s disappointing and not the impression I got from the website. Boo.

  • SomeGuy

    be the reason someone scats today?

      Also, with all those pizzagaters still on the loose, do you really want to go with the name pidzza across town? PIDzza? Having a name so close to pedo and with a picture of a young girl from behind in your restaurant, you’d better believe I would expect some harassment from those folks.

      • FridayGirl

        “PIDzza? Having a name so close to pedo…”
        There’s like a 2+ letter difference. But maybe I’m missing something? This seems far flung.

      • Truxton Thomas

        That’s a stretch.

        • maxwell smart

          The whole Comet thing was a stretch.

      • Idontgetit

        Not a stretch at all if you have read any of the p*zzag*te blogs. In fact they are so crazy and relentless that I wish the original comment would “disappear”.

  • Rich

    It’s a Turkish take on pizza, so it can’t be any worse than the bland tomato sauce on cardboard they serve down the street.

    • FridayGirl

      Are you talking about &pizza? They’re not THAT bad. Also you don’t have to get tomato sauce. Perhaps you should try the garlic ricotta sometime… infinitely better.

  • Crazyquilt

    I suspect their name is a play on “pide” which is a pizza-like flatbread native to Turkey. Ref. their first menu item.

    Is pizza going to be the next cuisine type to hit a bubble? A surge in burger and cupcake businesses several years ago resulted in a ton of closures recently, and now we’re seeing a surge in pizza. I’ll take pizza over cupcakes any day, but the bubble is not only in the crust this time.

    • jaybird

      We’ll see. Perhaps the bubble will be the assembly line type of experience as opposed to a traditional sit down restaurant. Pizza seems to always be popular.
      And as for burgers Shake Shack (like them or not) doesn’t seem to agree with you.

        Agree that Shake Shack seems to be doing just fine, but they also operate stores in a bunch of cities (and countries). Places like &pizza will likely do OK because they have many stores, but the sit down restaurants that only operate one or two stores (not drunk pizza) are likely to be priced out.

  • FridayGirl

    I just looked at their menu and actually, now I want this. It looks very different from &pizza (in my opinion).
