Pizza inside and out

pizza.jpgThis is the transom light over the entry of East Side Pies, at Rosewood and Angelina, catty-corner from the Prince Hall Masonic Temple and just across from the Carver branch of the library. The view’s from the indoors side. Because we arrived just as Eklavya was beginning and didn’t want to miss a moment of it by taking time to buy popcorn (especially not the great camels and train scene), we needed refreshment afterwards, so after stopping at the library we checked out East Side Pies (East Side Pizza also works on line). As a dedicated lifelong non-pizza consumer, I can only report what others said. Pies were going by the slice, but nobody was up for variety; it was sausage all the way. It smelled very good and the partakers say it’s real Italian-style sausage, with lots of fennel. The crust seems to have little yeast and therefore no bubbles; it’s tending toward cracker-style in the crispness department. There are seats in front and seats out back. All were in use. East Side does deliver where many won’t. It was wonderful to see it so busy on this beautiful day. Probably because of all the downtown marathon-related snarls, Carver was particularly busy, also.

    My son and a friend have a tradition of going to Momoko after the Chinese New Year celebrations up north. The marathon diverted them to Eastside Pies oddly enough. You were probably there at the same time.
