Oath Craft Pizza – South Station, Boston, MA

Oath Craft Pizza originated on Nantucket, but their first Boston area location was a stand in South Station. They’ve since expanded further to more traditional restaurant locations in Davis Square and Chestnut Hill, but since I live down on the southern end of the Red Line, South Station is still where I go. They specialize in pizza that is made pretty quickly with high quality ingredients, and their menu caters to your imagination. Traditionalists can order a cheese or pepperoni pizza, or one of the specialty combinations of toppings that Oath Craft has already perfected. If you’re like me and want to wing it, you can order a “Selfie” and pick whatever toppings you want.  Continue reading

Precinct Kitchen + Bar – Back Bay, Boston, MA



On a recent date night, we decided to try out Precinct Kitchen + Bar in the Back Bay. They’re located inside of the Lowes Hotel and have a cool industrial theme. Precinct has the bar & sit-down dining separated, so while the bar was super loud, when we sat down to eat, it was actually pretty quiet & chill. Looking at the menu, there were so many different things I wanted to try: buffalo chicken tots, macaroni and cheese, and burgers were all considered and looked delicious. However, when push came to shove, I got a flatbread. You can take the girl out of her usual pizza restaurants but you can’t stop her from getting pizza.  Continue reading

Johnny’s Pizza & Subs – Dorchester, Boston, MA


Johnny’s Pizza & Subs in Dorchester, across from the Ashmont T stop, is certainly catering to people who want fast, cheap pizza. The interior is no frills – you order at a counter and there are a few tables to the side for if you’re not getting your food to go. Definitely don’t bring a date for dinner here. They don’t offer delivery, but you can call ahead for take-out. They’re also cash only and have an ATM inside. I’ve come to Johnny’s because it’s within walking distance of my apartment, and every once in a while I just want a quick bite and don’t want to pay and wait for delivery.  Continue reading

Digiorno Rising Crust Pepperoni Pizza


Digiorno is arguably the king of frozen pizzas. “It’s not delivery, it’s Digiorno” is a part of our pop culture lexicon. Digiorno’s classic rising crust pizza is like your favorite college sweatshirt – comforting, no frills, and reliable. The crust is twice as thick as it needs to be and really just serves to provide empty calories that make the pizza easier to share. The cheese melts well together but doesn’t have much taste. I suggest adding grated parmesan before baking. The pepperonis and sauce give a decent kick to the pizza. Best paired with cheap beer.

Riddick’s House of Pizza – Dorchester, Boston MA

The first thing that stuck out to me was that the sauce looks and tastes like school cafeteria pizza sauce… just cheap, and kind of weird/fake tasting. Same with the crust, actually. It was kinda soft and chewy, but without any crunch anywhere. The crust was also sweet. I thought maybe I was crazy tasting that, but my boyfriend confirmed my suspicions. The cheese was also just obviously cheap mozzerella and blah. It didn’t melt together all the way, so you could still see & tell it was shredded. There also wasn’t enough on the pizza to start with. The pepperonis were just generic cheap kind. I feel bad saying it, but this pizza was just not good. Edible, yeah, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to order it ever again.

HOWEVER, that all being said… Continue reading
