Pi Pizzeria Restaurant Review: Pi Pizzeria boasts a cleverly executed math theme and a thorough commitment to sustainability. This location is the flagship, and its menu highlights deep-dish pizza with a buttery-crisp cornmeal crust and fresh mozzarella. Try the Kirkwood, loaded with meatballs and red peppers. The secondary pizza style has a thin, crispy crust but the same diversity of toppings, like the Maplewood’s spicy meatballs, peppers and Fontina. Other options include the breaded and baked Pi Bites, balls of Fontina, mozzarella, local Volpi prosciutto and rosemary, served with a spicy tomato sauce. Desserts are the final variable in Pi’s food formula: cookies or cheesecake? Salted caramel ice cream or a peanut butter-cookie dough shake? Capping the savvy marketing, several microbreweries have risen to the challenge of creating beers for Pi’s restaurants, with catchy names like the Pi-PA and 3.14 Kolsch. Come early, because it’s not unusual for all the tables to be filled within half an hour of the lunch opening and again at dinner.
