On the corner of 12th and Webster (Webster facing) there's a NEW pizza place. It's replacing the failed bakery that was on the corner. Which replaced a sushi place. Long ago, it was once a Korean owned corner coffee shop with a decent omelette, burger, and fish and chips. You could also get kimchi and bulgogi too.
Why don't you take one for the team and try it out?
Picked up a medium chicken-mushroom today. It's a one man operation in a very small space. Two tiny tables inside and outside. If you're #4 in line, you're out on Webster St.
The good: $8.99/8 slices; generous toppings; thin schmear of tomato sauce (mom's choice) and cheese. He follows instructions and is most genial.
The not-so-good: the crust was doughy and perhaps underbaked. I'm used to the thin crust type, and I'm no pizza expert.
There was a line (mostly for slices) by 11:35AM. I think I'll give them another chance but will ask for a crispier crust and regular cheese.
