District of Pi is a pizza oasis. I am a pizza person. I love love love pizza. My favorite type of pizza is Chicago Style, Deep Dish Pizza. Prior to today, Giordano’s in Chicago was the only restaurant I trusted to make my favorite pizza. I have tried many, many restaurants who claim to make Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza. I have been disappointed over and over again. All of that ended today, when I waltzed into District of Pi for lunch.
I am so pleasantly surprised by District of Pi. The restaurant looks like a pizzeria complete with Red and White checkered napkins and wooden tables, but with a touch of class displayed with the presence of chandeliers.
Now to the food. I ordered District of Pi’s signature Cornmeal Deep Dish Pepperoni Pizza. When my waitress Sherry brought the pizza to my table, my eyes lit up in joy and disbelief. My first thought was, “Could it Be?” This pizza looks like an authentic Chicago Style Deep Dish pizza.
The crust is solid & crispy. I bit into the pizza. The crust was crispy and crunchy. The marriage of cheese, pepperoni, and sauce made me dance in my seat. The sauce is flavorful. I can see and taste the Italian seasonings in the sauce through every bite. There are chunks of tomatoes in every bite of pizza. I enjoyed this pizza so much.
I am so happy to discover District of Pi. I can now have Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza in Washington D.C. I look forward to my next visit.
