The news that Pi Pizza Truck, the mobile eatery known for its offbeat (and delicious) pies, would open a brick and mortar location was certainly welcome. As the new location is being prepared, though, the change feels a little bittersweet.
After this weekend, you’ll have to wait at least a few months to dig into a pile of pizza fries or your very own Sopressata So Good pie.
Today, Pi Pizza’s Anthony Calleo announced via press release that he will shut down his pizza truck this weekend to make way for the new restaurant. “This week is bittersweet but I am ready to get off the food truck and get into a restaurant and serve all of my best items,” Calleo said in a statement.
In the meantime, diners still have a few more days to enjoy Pi Pizza in its original form. Calleo will park his pizza truck at Johnny’s Gold Brick at 2518 Yale this weekend. Open Thursday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m., Friday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., and Saturday from 2 p.m. until 2 a.m., you’ll likely want to get there early as Calleo expects that his pies could sell out quickly.
Saturday, May 7 will be Pi Pizza’s last day in the pizza truck. The brick and mortar restaurant is expected to open sometime this summer, though no concrete date has been set.
