The new pizza place offers what others don’t
With Abo’s a short walk away from campus and Cosmo’s right down the street, anyone may think that there is no room nor need for another pizza place on the hill.
However, anyone who thinks this will never be able to explore the wonder of the new Pizza Plaza on College and 13th.
“There’s plenty of room here for new and fresh,” said owner and self-acclaimed “entrepreneur ridiculoso” Mike Greenberg.
Plaza’s individuality stems from its unique roman-style pizza. A person hungry for a pizza may be able to get the same pepperoni pizza anywhere, but Pizza Plaza offers a wide variety of unique pies including: ham and tomato, bleu cheese and spinach.
“At first I wasn’t sure what to expect from Pizza Plaza, but I’m glad I went. The eggplant roasted garlic was delicious, and quick too,” said John Phipps, a freshman integrative physiology major.
The specific location of Pizza Plaza does not have a flattering history. Over the past few years both a Dairy Queen and a BBQ place failed in that location. However, this is not going to stop the Plaza from providing good eats.
“I don’t believe in real superstitions, or bad voodoo. I love this location. It’s the hoppingest college corner in the area. Everyone has to go past me to get food,” said Greenberg.
Pizza Plaza is operated by husband and wife duo Mike and Boel Greenberg. So far they claim to be having a blast running the restaurant.
“I love this area and the fact that its so nice; the doors are open in the summertime,” said Greenberg.
So far Pizza Plaza has been getting a good amount of business since their opening. Shortly after Christmas break, they plan to offer bike delivery to the dorms so freshman can get fresh, affordable roman pizza at a quick pace.
“You can walk in here, get a roasted garlic pizza fresh from the oven and be out in three minutes,” said Greenberg.
Along with bike deliveries, Plaza also plans to offer some student deals next semester.
Students should take advantage of these deals and to not miss out on a great bite to eat this January.
