I had the pleasure of organizing a work lunch today—normally a task I hate—but one that I enjoyed in this case since I got to use a long-awaited LivingSocial deal for Bethesda’s relatively new Naked Pizza on Del Ray Ave.
Let me be clear: I Heart Naked Pizza.
It’s just delicious. I love the wheat crust, the healthy ingredients, and the general idea—however real it may be—that it’s somehow good for me.
My favorites, which were present today to rave reviews, include the Mediterranean pizza; the Smokehouse; and the Sonoran. The Smokehouse was particularly good, but honestly, you just can’t go wrong with any of them.
The guys running the shop also couldn’t have been nicer; one helped me carry all the boxes to my car. And there were a lot. I got a bunch of spinach salads, too—not bad.
PS. Bethesda magazine reports today that Green Papaya has closed. Never got a chance to try it, but can’t say I’m surprised—it’s a super-prime location (read: $$$ lease) and never seemed terribly crowded.
