That's right - we lined up for pizza because we knew it would move fast and it would be worth the wait. It is the genius idea from the good people at Umami Burger. Seriously, why didn't I think of this?
Once inside you stay in the line and place your order as though you were at a Chipotle or Subway. You choose the foundation for your pizza - bianca, margherita, or marinara. You build your pizza from there by using or embellishing their suggestions. If you're feeling inspired you can always create your own!
800 Degrees is Neapolitan style pizza, which is meant to have a thin chewy crust devoured by knife and fork. I love a thin crust but prefer a little crunch. If you do too be sure to request extra crispy before it is sent off to the wood burning oven.

Other than being served fast, 800 Degrees has nothing in common with fast food. This gorgeous hunk of prosciutto perched in this sophisticated piece of equipment is proof!

I just love a charred, blistered crust, don't you?
I hope this post finds you all well and hopefully still my readers after my long and unexplained absence from the blogging world. First my back surgery and then - a burglary! My laptop was among the items stolen. This post is dedicated to my boyfriend - who missed my blog so much he generously replaced/upgraded my laptop!!! The world doesn't feel as cold and uncaring when you have a good man in your life. Thank you RC.
