Attn Baltimore: &pizza is Coming to Federal Hill

Dear Baltimore residents and visitors,

This Thursday, May 26th, is your lucky day! &pizza, the unconventional collection of local pizza shops known in the D.C. area for their craft pizza, housemade soda, and ampersand tattooed employees, is proud to announce it will open its first Baltimore location in Federal Hill at 1201 South Charles Street.


In light of this joyous occasion, &pizza will offer free pies for all on opening day! The first five guests to request the shop’s signature ampersand tattoo will receive a complimentary one at the nearby Brightside Tattoo Shop, and free pizza for a year (one pizza/week for 52 weeks) once they receive it.

Expect nothing but the best in both food and experience. Beginning with the Baltimore location, &pizza will become the first to serve desserts from Milk Bar, the world renowned bakery founded by James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chef award-winner Christina Tosi and Momofuku’s David Chang in 2012. &pizza will also feature an ampersand painted on the white brick wall, paying homage to their first DC shop which has a large ampersand painted on the white brick wall.

unnamed-1unnamed-2&pizza now has 15 shops in DC, Maryland, and Virginia–and is revered throughout the region as a brand that stands for more than just fresh pizza. Guests have the opportunity to craft their own individual pie or choose from seven signature pizzas, each one with their own unique flavor profile. The pizza shop uses fresh ingredients and works with local producers for its signature and seasonal menu of pizzas, snacks, craft sodas, and artisanal teas.


  •  Seven signature pizzas
  • Two dessert pizzas
  • Milk Bar cookies
  • Six craft sodas
  • Three teas

Baltimore visitors will be the first to taste &pizza’s new core menu which includes two new signature pies and elevated ingredients.

New pies include:

  • The Pineapple Jack, a take on a Hawaiian pizza with salami, pineapple, and Cherry Bomb BBQ.
  • The Salad Pizza, a whole new category of pizza with cucumber, tomatoes, pickled red onion and ranch.

Guest favorites include the Farmer’s Daughter, a spicy sausage pizza topped with spinach and local farm eggs over easy; the Gnarlic, which incorporates garlic ricotta and garlic sauce with pesto; and the top seller, the Maverick, which includes pepperoni, Italian sausage, and salami.

Be sure to stop by and grab a pie this Thursday, May 26th, 2016 at 1201 South Charles Street! Snap a picture of your delicious slice using the hashtag #andpizzabaltimore for a chance to win free &pizza gear and be featured on HeyDoYou!
