“One of the better pizzas in the DC area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We ordered three kinds of vegetarian pizzas -- edge of the woods, the green and the arugula pizza. My daughter had a special request for goat cheese on the arugula pizza for which we were charged $6 extra (not warranted i think for the amount of cheese that was actually on the pizza) since they said it was a premium cheese. All the pizzas were excellent with the Edge of the woods being the favorite. Three large ones for a group of 8 was plenty and we had leftovers to take back home. We will be back again.

“The best pizza in DC, FWIW”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Pete's has the best pizza crust in DC: crisp on the bottom, chewy on the inside, though not nearly as good as in New Haven or Naples. The plain cheese pizza is OK. The tomato sauce is good, but the cheese is too much of a thick, solid layer. The veggie slices (which seem to change from day to day) are inventive but hit or miss; they suffer from the common disease of piling too many things on at once. At lunch Pete's is super-convenient, since you order at the counter and your food comes quickly. The beer selection is very good, too.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Sat outside, nice tables in the sun or shade. Quick service. Excellent food. Salad was small for the price, but I guess most come here for the pizza, which did not disappoint, thin and crispy!! Another member in our party had a pasta dish and they said that was excellent as well. You can't go wrong here.

“Good pizza in Clarendon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

The New Haven pizza is a variety of the so called neapolitan pizza; a thin crust pizza. Here the crust is crispy and tastes more like flatbread. They have a variety of fillings, all of them good. I love the chief's choice. The spinach salad, with crumbled goat cheese and pine nuts is excellent. I always go for the slices because they don't have small pizzas, which makes me lower a point on their rating because warmed up pizza is not as good as fresh from the oven.
