Wood Fired Pizza in Downtown St. Pete?

juli5122 Jun 8, 2011 07:14 PM

I just read on face book that Wood Fired Pizza is opening a location in the Mercantile Bank Building. I am very excited as I have read your comments about their pizza and haven't made it over as of yet. Has anyone else heard about this. I remember hearing talk a while back but no specifics. Thanks for the low down.

    I have not heard anything regarding this but would be very interested if they did.

      I talked with Peter a couple of weeks ago and he had just signed the lease. More locations to come. Good news for Tampa Bay

        yeah CL did an article on it too, they're opening with a WOB right across, and the two together are going to make a ton of $.

          It will be a few months for build out, but it should be a really nice space with a big shared, covered deck between Pete's Wood Fired Pizza (the new name of the business) and WOB.

          I'm gonna go ahead and call it. This duo is going to CLEAN UP. Pete's pizza? 40 taps of craft beer? Even if it is the (typically) douchier of the craft beer spots, I'll definitely be driving over the bridge more often.
