Dear Slice: Peter Reinhart's New Pizzeria

Dear Slice

Slice mail answered.

Clicking in to the Slice inbox today, we've got an email that's been sitting in my tips jar for far too long. Apologies to Kyle, who sent it in, and to you folks reading this. I should have passed this info along sooner.

Dear Slice, Letters From Our ReadersHi Adam,
Just wanted to pass along a little article that I saw in the Charlotte Observer regarding a new pizza joint headed by [renown baker and author of American Pie] Peter Reinhart, among others. It looks like it opened up [early September], but I haven't been able to find too much information about it yet. I'd swing by, but unfortunately am located elsewhere in the state. North Carolina is certainly no pizza mecca, but hopefully this place can put Charlotte on the pizza map.

And here's the restaurant's site:


710 West Trade Street, Charlotte NC 28202 (map) 704-379-7555

------------------------------------------------------------ Dear Kyle, Thanks for the intel, and sorry it took so long to get this up on the site. Reinhart is, of course, author of American Pie, one of the best pizza books out there. And he's a master baking instructor and bread dude. I've used his Neapolitan pizza dough recipe many times now to great success.

Poking around, I found this entry on Reinhart's blog about PieTown's opening:

Next time you're in Charlotte, please hit it up and take some pix! We'd all love to see how the place--and its pizza--looks.

Hasta la pizza, Adam
