Finally, Pupatella on Capitol Hill

good morning!

One thing I missed most since moving from Arlington to Washington DC was Pupatella Pizza.

During my marathon training I would grab a pizza (and maybe a salad and dessert) from them every Sunday night. I mean, I had to make up for all those calories. Cheat days and all that.

The pizza scene isn't great where I am. There are maybe two near me but:

  1. They charge way too much money
  2. The pizza doesn't taste very good.

One day, when taking the bus to work, I saw there was a Pupatella "Coming soon" to Capitol Hill. Huzzzah! I thought.

That was months ago. For a while I abandoned the idea of their wonderful pizze coming back to me.

That is, until this week, when they finally opened. Huzzah! I thought.

Pupatella has what's called a "Verace Pizza Association certification", which means they have what is considered to be true Neopolitan pizza.

Certainly that has to be because of their huge stone oven, which gives their pizza a beautiful crust. And all their ingrediants are super fresh.

It's too bad I'm in Colorado today, else I'd have visited their DC location already. Guess I can wait until Sunday.
