As a pizza connoisseur, I have tried many pizza places and I have to say 800 degrees ranks towards the top. It's a "chipotle" style setup where you get to choose your toppings as you go down the line, which is a nice touch. I have no problem eating a personal size all to myself.
I'd much rather go for a giant New York slice, but when this is the only pizza option around, it's not so bad. The personal size is tough—it's too much for just one person, but not quite enough to box up for later. I usually overeat here! Luckily I can pretend it's okay because I get to pick what veggies I pile on top.
Now that 800 Degrees is far from the only "build your own pizza" place, it's hard to say what—if anything—makes this place stand out. No matter how many combinations I try, my pizzas are merely good, not great—partially due to a crust that's never quite as crisp as it should be. At the very least, 800 Degrees does know how to put together a handsome dining area.
It's hard to find gluten free pizza, but this place has it and it's quite delicious. I love that you get to pick what's on your pizza and that you can watch them make it. The ingredients seem fresh and the outcome is yummy.
