&pizza Now Open at Hyattsville’s Mall at Prince George’s!

Walked by the other day to see that &pizza just opened at Hyattsville’s Mall at Prince George’s! Dig that they have a number of options for a variety of dietary needs.  For instance, they’re dairy-free mozzeralla, spicy chickpea and vegan sausage. They also offer gluten-free crust. I believe &pizza is only accessible from the outside (right next to the new Chipotle). I hope they can add a couple of tables and chairs for some outdoor seating. πŸ˜ƒ Looks like it will be open 7 days a week, 11am – 10pm. Between Hyattsville’s Pizzeria Paradiso, Riverdale Park’s MOD Pizza, College Park’s […]
