“One of the Best Pizza Places ever”
Review of Project Pie - CLOSED

Project Pie
Price range: US$3 - US$10
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: Project Pie is the culmination of our pursuit to design and serve great pizza. We call it Artisan Pizza. It all starts with our scratch made dough freshly prepared every day in our restaurants. It continues with our signature tomato sauce made in house with fresh-cut basil and our special spice blend. We use the finest ingredients, including 100% whole milk mozzarella cheese, prosciutto, roasting our brussels sprouts and caramelizing our onions right in our oven. You design your pizza how you want and we build it right in front of you. Sure we have some awesome combinations to get you started or you can create your own custom pie. We bake your pizza in our open fire deck oven for about 2 minutes and serve it to you in seconds. None of this can happen without great people. What sets up apart is our outstanding service. We don't have customers, we have guests. Our restaurant is a great place to unwind with friends and family while enjoying great tasting food.

Lot of choices including Gluten-Free! Just need a reason to go there!!! Finding parking will be a little bit work, however once you are in the place, you will forget everything and indulge the test.

If your looking for a place that's quick, economical and awesome food? This is it! Build your own pizza with any topping or as much topping as you would like for less than 8 buck. Great service, clean restaurant, employees are friendly and just a great place to hang.

Love this place, so inexpensive and so good! Tasted fresh and I had the GF crust, and as far as GF goes, it was very good. Fun atmosphere, great lunch spot!

Where else can you get pizza, salad and beverages (non alcoholic) for under $20! You build your own pie with whatever you want...we had a half his and half hers...terrific crust and fresh ingredients.

Been to Project Pie three times now so you know my family and I are enjoying this place. Anyway, my 11-year old son is a die-hard "make your own pizza" type so he continuously searches for such establishments. This was borne out of an experience he had, and enjoyed, in a similar restaurant in Westwood near UCLA. Lo and behold! He finds this place called Project Pie. So off we went and found a gem in Hillcrest! We walked in and were immediately greeted by the staff. There are some 5 or 6 pre-set pies but what's great is you can add anything else they have...without any per items cost increases! And the selections were varied enough without being overwhelming and intimidating. The end result is a pie to your liking with excellent thin and crispy crust. The sodas do taste different and delicious being made with real sugar!! To top it off, the staff is really friendly and the service outstanding (Hi! Siri!! Understand your claim to be the original "Siri"!!). Anyway, the quotes on the walls range from the whimsical to the philosophical to the humorous! Better read than the back of the cereal box. The one downer was parking which is very small and shared with other businesses but is free for 30 minutes. Even though I never had problems parking there, it may have been because I always have been there mid-afternoon on a weekend. I could only imagine how it'll be on a weekday lunch hour. But still, I won't hold it against the staff that is doing such an excellent job!
