As you know, I like pizza (but really, who doesn't?). My pizza journey or "pizzourney" is far from over.
This week I paid a visit to my new favorite Dallas pizza or “pie” joint, Project Pie. Their flagship Dallas location opened about a year ago at Dallas-Preston Center. From the witty and sarcastic phrases printed upon every surface in the restaurant to the inspirational quotes and ever so friendly staff, Project Pie is a project I’ll devote my time (and calorie count) to.
Even before entering Project Pie you’re greeted by the familiar handwritten & welcoming font seen throughout the pizzeria. These unique personal touches set Project Pie apart from other pizza establishments.
The interior is spacious, modern and set up for easy traffic management, especially during that bustling lunch rush.
An additional unique amenity is the presence of Boylan Bottling sodas on tap! Boylan Bottling’s story started in 1891, when a pharmacist named William Boylan created an elixir in his Paterson, New Jersey apothecary. He named that serum, a derivative of birch trees, Boylan’s Birch, and began selling individual cups from a barrel in the back of a wagon. With over 120 years of bottling tradition, it’s a refreshing alternative to the usual!
The Menu makes it easy (and fun!) to assist with your indecisiveness. I favor how each selection varies heavily from the other-I make it a personal mission to try them all eventually!
The party opted for Project Pie’s most requested selection, the #2. This pie is topped with pepperoni, Italian sausage, crumbled meatballs, mozzarella, signature red sauce and garlic. After the first bite I immediately fell for Project Pie. I quickly took note of how crisp the crust became after being baked. Like most “Build Your Own
Pizza Pie” joints, Project Pie uses a 600° fire brick oven, fully baking the pies for less than only 120 seconds! I don’t know how they do it but they have perfected their artisan crust, becoming the best I’ve had on any pie.
For our second pie we wanted to try something more personal so we opted for a “Build Your Own” topped with pepperoni, artichokes, pineapple, garlic and a garlic butter glaze for the crust (ask for this, seriously)! This glazed crust did it for me; buttery, garlic-y and (best of all) crispy goodness.
Did I mention if you come in August 27th for Project Pie’s “Just Because” Day you’ll receive a free dessert pie with your pizza from 2-4PM!
What’s better is Project Pie’s Greenville location is slated to open in about a month, neighboring HG Sply Co. & Steel City Pops. With a quirky design, super energetic service and one helluva pie it’s no wonder they’re expanding in DFW!
hungry on your “pizzourney”, Dallas.
