Apparently gourmet pizzas are the flavor of the week in the local foodie community. First we had Scott Howell's announcement of The Rockwood Filling Station a few days ago. And now: the good folks at Pop's, who are opening the Pop's Backdoor takeout and delivery service today at 5pm.
We learned about the new business from the Watts-Hillandale listserv; apparently a few residents in the neighborhood got a chance to try out Pop's-to-go over the last couple of weeks during its test-run period, and walked away with rave reviews of the new at-home dining option.
The menu offers twenty choices of wood-fired pizzas/calzones, along with build-your-own with toppings that range from pepperoni and bell peppers to goat cheese, truffle oil, and shortribs. Fresh salads and breads as well as desserts (including tiramisu and chocolate pudding cake) are also available.
Another plus: beer and wine are available for delivery/takeout, too, with your food order. Pop's Backdoor will be open 5pm until 10pm daily -- hours may extend until "11ish" on Fridays and Saturdays.
