DC Pizza and Some Hot Coal-Oven News

On the blog DCist today, a comparison of Washington pizzerias 2 Amys, Bebo Trattoria, Comet Pizza, and Red Rocks.

What gets my attention, however, is one of the commenters:

NYC expats who want their coal-fired pizza fix now have an option outside Baltimore. The Phat Pug Coal Fired Pizzeria, 8814A Bel Air Road, Perry Hall, MD is about an hour's drive from downtown DC. If you're down on the burnt crust tip, this is your only option outside New York. And yeah, coal fired pizza ain't coming to DC no way, no how. Imagine what that stuff does to your lungs.

For the uninitiated, coal-fired pizza ovens are the holy grail of pizza ovens, since they're able to crank to mega-high temps and properly cook a pie.
