Good pizza can be hard to come by in D.C., but we’re determined to find it. We’re putting on-campus pizza to the test to see where you can get the best slice of pie without leaving Foggy Bottom. Check out next week’s issue for best off-campus pizza. Let the tasting begin!
First Place: Froggy Bottom Pub
Hot, cheesy, and filling, Froggy’s pizza is a great bang for your buck. Cheap beer, cheap eats and a friendly staff have made this neighborhood establishment popular for almost 25 years. Hands down, Froggy has the best deal on campus for pizza. Stop by on Mondays for half-price, quality pizza!
Too much pizza pie to handle? You can always take it home.
Hours: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Closed Sundays.
Pizzas: Nine choices plus create-your-own
For a personal cheese pizza: $10.99
2142 Pennsylvania Ave.
Second Place: Bertucci’s
This Italian chain is a reliable spot for family-style meals. While it’s the next best thing to frozen dinners, Bertucci’s does offer a perfected, albeit boring, formula.
Even if it’s sometimes served cold, Bertucci’s pizza’s thin crust is the closest thing to authentic pizza you’ll find on campus. Offering a wide variety of toppings, this brick-oven pizza leaves your taste buds satisfied and your stomach full.
Hours: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Pizzas: 15 different types, create-your-own, plus a half-salad deal
For a personal cheese pizza: $9.99
2000 Pennsylvania Ave.
Third Place: Tonic
A fun space with spotty service, Tonic has become an easy place for students to enjoy a homestyle meal. Tonic offers personal gourmet pizzas that are a bit pricey, but perfectly sized.
This thin-crusted pizza is satisfying, but not to die for. While pretty nondescript, Tonic is good for average food and average service.
Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Five choices plus create-your-own
For a personal cheese pizza: $9.95
2036 G St.
