Pie by the Pound

When I was in New York City with my friend LoFo we stopped by Pie by the Pound.  I thought I had been here once before... but upon actually eating here, I don't remember having been here.

I ordered a veggie pizza with asparagus, yellow peppers, red peppers, and lemon.  I enjoyed the unique flavors that the restaurant offers to place on top of a pretty bland gluten free crust.  The crust tasted like a plain, thin rice crust with little flavor.  While Pie by the Pound does offer unique toppings on its pizza, it didn't quite make up for the crust's plain flavor.

Pie by the Pound is definitely no Mozzarelli's; if I'm in New York and am craving gluten free pizza, I'll definitely hit up Mozzarelli's before returning to Pie by the Pound.

The gluten free pizza at Pie by the Pound takes longer to cook than the regular pizza and was also expensive -- $17.00 for the size you see above!  I am also unsure as to whether the pizza was put in a gluten free oven, but I didn't feel so hot after eating this pizza.  Maybe it was a fluke, but I feel it's appropriate to warn you readers.

Do you love it or do you love it?
