A month (or a few) ago Pop's (one of our most frequently visited local eateries) opened their backdoor. Pop's Backdoor began selling pies and calzones in a new business venture. I finally picked up a couple of their pies last night to take home, and this morning I am still wondering why I waited so long to try them out! They are located behind the brightleaf square main parking lot, adjacent to Parker and Otis. And from what I can tell, you can basically get a pizza from 11:30am–10:00pm.
On to the pizza. For myself I got the 10inch version of the #2. This beautifully golden (not too thick and not too thin) crust was topped with a wonderful pomodoro sauce. It had the perfect amount too. It was just enough for a coating, not too runny and perfectly balanced flavor. Next there was a layer of wonderful crispy pancetta (think Italian bacon), followed by a tender-crisp layer of thinly-cut potato slices. This was topped off with mounds of garlicky spinach and very good quality mozzarella cheese.
specialty pizzas run $10 for a 10 inch and you can also build your own starting at $7.
