Flippin’ Pizza: One of the Best and Cheapest Opened in Dupont Circle

Pizza lover of Washington, D.C. Flippin’ Pizza just opened one of their cutest joint two blocks from my place north Dupont Circle right off Connecticut Avenue. I have eaten a lot of great pizza in Spain, NY, Iran, California, England, and Paris– so I’m pretty picky about my pies!  After trying Flippin Pizza near y my place,  it will indeed  be my go-to place – very cute and cozy.

Thin and crusty on the outer edges, but gooey in the middle. Can’t ever go wrong with pizza…

1. The sauce is spread evenly and pretty much close enough to the edge.
2. Sauce / flavor of ‘Bronx’ signature pie are Perfecto!
3. The portion of cheese on it is generous (they use 100% whole milk mozzarella).
4. The crust is Awesome!  It’s thin enough that you could fold it while eating your slice

I do like the fact that the decor is an open lofty plan with beams and exposed bricks, so that is very cool. I also like the fact that the whole cooking area is exposed. You can actually watch them tossing and cooking the pizza right behind the cash register.  They have about 3 or 4 tables, a bar top area, and a small (as in 1 table) patio area.

Here is how I’d rate them out of 5:

Food – 4.5
they have 8 or 9 flavors pre-made that they quickly reheat by order.  It’s very thin sliced. The reason I gave it a 4.5 is because it is a little bit extra oily.  It’s thin, flavorful, and…well…cheap.  One thing that definitely will gave it a boost above other similar pizza places is the crust and the price.  The crust is very crispy (not burnt), which is just the way I like it.

Service – 5
Service is great.  The guy who helped me was very personable.  He even posed for a dough tossing pic.  I was acknowledged right away, and I was even given a gracious goodbye as I walked out the door.

Atmosphere – 5
This is what really got me.  The place reminds me so much of a loft.  I loved the exposed brink along one wall.  The rest of the place was decorated very plain and minimalistic.  All along the white walls were photographs framed in very simple black frames.  Couple that with the other black furniture, and you’ve got a great, contemporary-ish look.  The music playing was really awesome too.  I heard some great slow rock while I was eating, and as I was finishing up my meal I heard some good old big band jazz come on.

Pricing – 6 🙂
They offer 2 slices and a soda for $5 or one slice with soda for $3

Overall,  the place is certainly a keeper.
