In this installment of Pizza Break, I bring you pizza from Glen’s Garden Market.
I’ve been going to Glen’s since I moved to D.C. It’s a gourmet market that has excellent food, including some of the best pizza in the city. The base is thin and light but the crust is thick and chewy. You can tell that all of the ingredients are fresh. I like when places don’t mess around.
This pizza is DEFINITELY not messing around. I’m going to start sounding like a saleswoman for Glen’s, but you should go there and try it immediately (if you’re in the D.C. area) because it’s seasonal. It has mozzarella, tomato sauce, fresh sliced peaches, jalapeños and house smoked ham. It’s kind of like a Hawaiian, but even better because of the peaches. It’s sweet, spicy but also a little smoky–the perfect marriage of flavors.
So yeah…if you’re in Dupont Circle and you’re wondering where to get pizza in a low-key atmosphere, consider Glen’s. You can also browse the market while you wait for the pizza and hold yourself back from buying $19 salt. Or maybe that’s just me.
I’ve been looking for new music lately, and this song came highly recommended. I’ve been listening to it on my walk to work.
