In my own opinion, Dallas will never have too many pizza joints, and I am so thankful for that.
My husband and I had the pleasure of trying out Project Pie in Preston Center, and all we can say is BRAVO! Project Pie is an innovative pizza joint relatively new in the Dallas area, but it holds a lot of potential for such a fast paced city. With such a diverse community of families, college students, and young professionals being able to grab a quick meal with fresh ingredients and quality is hard to come across. Project Pie embodies all of that and is definitely going to make a splash in the Dallas area.
The vibe of the place is very laid back and welcoming for couples to large families. You can snap a quick photo and post it to their Instagram before hitting the line, and the food – we’ll get to that more below.
With what is described as an “everyday artisan pizza custom built by you,” the concept is simple: design, build, eat.
For $8.50, you have two ways to go about designing your artisan pizza: order by number or build your own. My husband and I game planned that we would each order by number and pile on the toppings to share. The beauty behind building your pizza is the toppings are not extra cost. Yes, you read that correctly. Keep piling those toppings on with as many choices as you like, because they don’t cost you any extra. This is refreshing when you always see yourself paying extra for more cheese or 3+ toppings.
After being shown the ropes by the friendly staff, talked into parmesan & garlic bread and dessert pies, they popped our 11-inch personal pizza into Dottie (their wood fire oven). Shortly after we filled our drink cups with the delicious Boylan Bottling sodas and found our table, our pizzas were being delivered to our table.
I’ve never been a huge fan on thin crust pizzas, but this was a different type of thin crust that kept its crunch. Even after sitting while I attempted to take bites of my husband’s pizza and the parmesan & garlic bread, each time I picked up a slice it still had crunch. This was a huge win for me in the thin crust pizza department.
As we ate, we washed down these tasty pizza with the most delicious sodas I have ever had. If you are looking for Coke, Dr. Pepper, or Sprite – they won’t be found here. Instead your taste buds will delight from the free refills of Boylan Bottling sodas, made with cane sugar in small batches. Project Pie is the only place that you will find these sweet sodas in a fountain (the root beer, black cherry, and birch beer were our favorites), so indulge on the refills and be ready to come back for more.
When we started working on dessert, I had the pleasure of speaking with one of the masterminds behind Project Pie – Mike Wynn. He shared some exciting upcoming plans for the Dallas area and Project Pie and his passion for building a culture in a product he believes in. It was a pleasure hearing his enthusiasm for the future of Project Pie.
From the Boylan Bottling delicious sodas, tasty personal pizzas and delectable sweet treats, we had an absolute blast visiting Project Pie and look forward to going back.
I was provided with a complimentary dining, but all opinions expressed are solely my own. Huge thank you to Mike, Ashley, and the entire Project Pie Staff for making our visit top notch!
