This weekend, two of the editors at Foodenator ventured over to the Upper Crust located in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Mass.
Although the location is very small and the tables are close together, we were able to squeeze into a corner after ordering a “slice of the day” consisting of Pesto & Chicken and a slice of Cheese. First let’s examine the traditional cheese. They use a very thin crust that is cooked to the point where it is crispy but not burnt. The crust is almost flaky. For a sauce, they use chunks of tomatoes that are pretty sweet with a nice blend kick of tart seasoning. They don’t make their slice with a tan of cheese but overall we gave their slice 4 out of 5 stars! ****
We also love that they deliver pizza’s on a bike, way to go green!
Our Second Slice, the Pesto Chicken pizza was also very good. The crust was exactly the same as the cheese pizza. We really liked the flavoring that we picked up from the pesto but we wish it was dispersed a little bit more evenly on the pizza. The chicken was also very good but a little on the dry side. Probably a result of buying it by the slice and re-heating. We suggest if you like this type of Pizza to order an entire pie and ask for extra cheese which should help to hold some of the moisture into the chicken. This slice gets 3 out of 5 stars! ***
Overall we love this chain which has the feel of an individual restaurant.
