Devour Piping Hot Pizza Perfection in the Nation's Capital

When trying to get a group of people to agree on a dining destination, many will want their preferred type of food. In a city like Washington, D.C. where residents have strong, unwavering opinions, there is one food choice everyone can agree on – pizza! Many area restaurants have elevated the pies to a whole new level of perfection by using wood fire stoves to crisp the crust to golden perfection and putting together new flavor combinations that we would never have dreamed of in a millions years.

If you are looking for a side of entertainment to go with your pizza, look no further than Comet Ping Pong which features amazing pies and ping pong tables to play while you wait for your food. Searching for a great place to grab a slice after a hard day at work? Hit up Ella's Wood Fired Pizza for one of the best happy hour's in the district where 7' pizzas are gobbled up. Want an authentic Neapolitan pizza? 2 Amy's and il Canale have some of the best the district has to offer. Not only does Pizzeria Paradiso make an amazing selection of quality pizzas but they also have a mouthwatering selection of beers to wash down their pie perfection.   

So if your group can't decide on which type of food to eat, suggest pizza. Your group will thank you later.
