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.
When they say that you can pick whatever you want with a Selfie, they mean it. I couldn’t believe how generous they were with toppings considering I ordered 2 different types of cheese and 3 different types of meat. The Italian sausage that I got was sliced and had a decent amount of spice to it. The meatballs were a good size, maybe a little less than an inch in diameter. They weren’t too oniony, which is what I usually hate about meatballs, and I would 100% just eat them with spaghetti if given the chance. The pepperoni was good quality but not too in your face. The mozzarella was gooey, the ricotta was creamy, and they both had a nice light taste. The sauce was very tomatoey and a good compliment to the rest of the toppings.
The only negatives were probably on me and the fact that I loaded up so much with toppings – I wish that the meat had crisped up more, and the sauce was a little cold in spots. Another minute or two in the oven would probably do the trick… guess I’ll have to order this combo again and see if I can get it well done.
On my way home from work I stopped by South Station again to get another selfie from Oath Craft for lunch. This time I subtracted the sausage and reheated the pizza in my oven for a few minutes when I got home (my commute is about 25 minutes, so the pizza was cold.) I think having one less topping and the extra couple minutes of cooking perfected this pizza. Way to go, me!
