Best Fancy Pizza
Timber Pizza Co.
809 Upshur St. NW, (202) 853-9746
Everyone won when Timber Pizza Co. exited pop-up purgatory and landed a brick-and-mortar space in Petworth. The casual restaurant with a giant, copper-colored wood-fire oven is an easy place to hang and split pies with friends. Founders Andrew Dana and Chris Brady call their pizza “Neapolitan-ish,” and Chef Daniela Moreira tops them primarily with ingredients sourced from the farmers markets where they got their start. The Bentley is devourable with cured chorizo, sopressata, Peruvian sweet peppers, and spicy honey ($16), as is The Ackley with butternut squash, arugula-lemon pesto, sweet potato fritters, and pumpkin seeds ($15.50). The pizza dough empanadas are also a must try (3 for $6).
