Subway, Dunkin' Donuts Roll Out Pizza
Yesterday morning, Lia alerted me to the fact that Subway has started to roll out personal pizzas in a few test stores in Manhattan's East Village. The sandwich chain plans to serve the mini pies nationwide by June.
Of course, I had to rush out to try it. Speaking of "rush," isn't the saying "fools rush in where angels fear to tread?" Yeah. I think it is. You can read about Subway's personal pizza on Slice, Serious Eats's pizza blog. Short take: The pizza (starting at $2.99 for cheese, pictured above) ain't so good.
In other who's-serving-pizza-now news, Dunkin' Donuts is jumping on the bandwagon. Chicagoist tried out Dunkin's wares and found them overpriced:
The deep dish-looking pizza has the exact same flavor as the frozen Bagel Bites we ate as kids, which isn't a bad thing. The crust isn't really crusty, but more like hot bread, and the sauce has that standard fake pizza sauce flavor with assorted bits of basil. The cheese was just as nondescript, but acceptable. We ordered pepperoni but didn't really see a lot of pepperoni.
Sounds about the same as what I encountered.
