It was a cold and windy Boston weekend, which equates to days filled with watching even more trashy reality TV than usual. But, I did manage to pull myself away from The Hills marathon long enough to grab lunch at Pizza Pie-er, a local pizzeria that serves "one-of-a-kind" pizzas. I decided to brave the cold and walk to the restaurant, as I figured I could use some fresh air/exercise (plus, given the current economic situation, I felt it best to cut back on discretionary spending, i.e. delivery fees)
I immediately became skeptical when I realized I was the only customer in Pizza Pie-er. As far as the restaurant itself, the décor was a bit cheezy (pun intended), with “pizza pies” as tables and garishly colorful chairs.
The pizza itself was extremely delicious but incredibly greasy. I was a big fan of the crust, as it was a bit crispy at the bottom (tasted like a pan-seared pizza!). The ground walnut sauce was awesome; it was brilliantly flavorful and the nuttiness balanced the saltiness of the prosciutto. After finishing my personal sized pizza, I fell into a food coma and ended up taking a nap for 2 hours (so much for my Sunday errands).
My pizza was only about $3 (after using my $5 gift certificate), so I cannot complain about the price. I would like to come back to this place, as the food was tasty and I would like to try out other creative pizza combinations. However, I would recommend visiting this place only sparingly, as the high grease factor would likely contribute to heart attacks/laziness.
