I’m lucky enough to not only have a great job but to also work for a company that hosts a twice monthly pizza lunch for all the employees. I know it sounds crazy but it's true. Although there's a regular rotation of places we order from; periodically we’ll try something new. This is how I got to taste Pizza A Metro.
Roughly translated to mean pizza by the meter; Pizza A Metro’s meter long pies are the perfect size for large groups like ours. They normally don’t deliver; it's eat in or pick up only. But Anna, our hospitality person, was able to sweet talk Lorenzo into making an exception. And I'm so glad she did. Pizza A Metro had been on my "must try" list for quite some time.
Anna had ordered 5 pies with various toppings. For the sake of this blog and being able to provide you with an accurate review; I tried them all.
I'm usually happiest with a plain pie but this time my favorite was the pepperoni.
The pizza’s were topped with the freshest ingredients and cooked in a wood-fire oven. The crusts were thin but not too crispy; maybe even a little on the doughy side. (which I don't mind) With their slightly sweet sauce they reminded me a lot of the pizza I had when visiting Rome.
The consensus around the office was favorable. Although, there were a few that said it wasn’t perfect; the majority really seemed to like Pizza A Metro. Hopefully, they will become part of our regular rotation.
