Pure Pizza - Plaza Midwood
Phenomenal The ingredients were very high quality. Under $50 for appetizers, pizza, and meals for family of 3. Cannot beat it. The speed and service was amazing. Rarely find spots like this- especially post-COVID. So grateful to have happened upon this gem. Will recommend!
They've cut down table service, so you order up front at the door, then find a table where they'll bring out your food when it's ready. There's lots of seating, but we chose to dine on the big patio outside that looks like it would be a nice place to hang out in the evening, with lights strung around. We tried a couple of the $12 each 10 inch "craft pizzas". The "Deconstructed pulled pork" was interesting, with the pork buried under melted cheese, and the whole thing topped with red cabbage slaw. The salty ham on the "Pure Country" overpowered the garlic and basil. But, the crusts were deliciously light and crispy, with chewy air pockets from the hot oven. There are also sandwiches and calzones on the menu, and drinks were limited to overpriced canned sodas and bottled water in the fridge.
Thi review is definitely not to bash this restaurant or warm anyone not to go here. They have great pizza. This would be my third time coming and im a little disappointed because i asked for a vegan version of their mushroom pizza (which is just switching out the cheese, its something ive gotten before. This time it meant i didnt want sauce? Who goes to a pizza place and doesnt want sauce? Just writing a review so they do better with this. The pic shows a sauce i added at home.
The pizza was good. We agreed that the Lulu was better than the pulled pork. We were a little disappointed to learn that their liquor license had expired so we couldnt enjoy a cold beer with our pizza. Drink choices in general were very limited. They offered sprite, coke, Diet Coke, and water in a can or bottle. Looks like most of the business was takeout so hopefully as things get back to normal so will the drink choices.
This is the very first place we ate while in Charlotte. We enjoyed it so much we went back during our short stay. The ingredient were fresh and the food was very tasteful. We even got to experience this without the gluten and still amazingly delicious. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. they even were helpful in places to visit during our stay.
