While on a trip to Washington D.C. to explore the rich history and majestic monuments the city has to offer, my friends and I came across a little pizza place serving up pies worthy for a President. This is no Papa John’s. This is We the Pizza.
The restaurant has a unique style that puts a twist on the classic Brooklyn style pizzeria. The white and black furniture contrasts the splashes of red on the walls, making for a fun and vibrant place to enjoy a divine slice of Sicilian with a great view of the Capitol Rotunda.
We the Pizza is located a few blocks away from the hustling political headquarters that is the National Mall. A seven minute walk at most, it is nestled among bakeries and coffee houses and begs you to enter with its enticing aroma of a fresh Margherita pie steaming in the oven. We the Pizza offers slices ranging from the traditional to the unconventional, with toppings like jalapeños and bananas. Every slice is served sizzling from the huge oven that dominates the bottom floor of the restaurant. We the Pizza offers outdoor seating where businessmen and people-watchers alike can stop by to get a sense of life in downtown D.C.
Next time you find yourself visiting the nation’s capital, We the Pizza is a spot you don’t want to miss!
We the Pizza is located on 305 SW Pennsylvania Avenue right off of Capitol Hill.
