(Via Carpe Durham) On the heels of the closing of Durham's beloved Pizza Palace, a new pizzeria has entered the space formerly occupied by the less-beloved I Love Manhattan Pizza on Ninth Street. The pizza parlor scores points for catering more to the community with its name than its predecessor's. But early on, Carpe Durham is not impressed:
First, the single slices looked so inedible that my friend and I ordered a whole pie. I have never seen pizza that didn’t look good to me. Then, the sauce tasted like tomato paste with a bit of oregano and the crust was tasteless and seemed frozen.
Here's hoping improvement is in the pizzeria's future.
