Pizza delivery does not really work. Pizza is meant to be eaten straight out of the oven or within a couple of minutes (so you don't burn your mouth). Delivery pizza will arrive 30 minutes to an hour after it is out of the oven and will be cold and soggy.  This happens with a the high end craft pizza places. You almost have to rebake the pizza once it arrives to get the full experience.

The workaround is to order 1/2 baked pizza. Finish in a 500F oven for a few minutes. Huge improvement (tho still the same shitty ingredients.)

My recommended work around is Dominos thin crust. Arrives hot and delicious in 30 mins or less.

This is a thing you can do!? What places accommodate this? Teach me your ways.

You can also order without cheese, then add your own, better cheese.  Works with sauce too.

Also, you can just buy a ball of dough from just about anywhere. That's the hard part...

So Hutch mentioned oxymoron and I agree....there really is NO good delivery pizza, you have to eat it fresh
crap pizza...well it's crap so they can over heat it and use ingredients that can make a 30 min drive

but in good news Yada, you don't have to come to arlington

If the world returns to normal . . . come to Front Royal, VA . . . and go to Melting Pot pizza, or have it delivered if you are staying in a airb,b for your outdoor adventure weekend.

P.S.A./RANT: if you are ordering delivery or pick-up, avoid using Grubhub, Uber Eats, or any other similar food delivery service - call the restaurant/bar/brewery/etc. directly. 

food delivery apps take a big chuck of the money from restaurant.  dunno about other folks, but i'm voting with my wallet and supporting local establishments that i want to make through the pandemic, so i don't want the profits from my order being funneled to VCs in silicon valley.

Fully support that method via pick up, but delivery that's not really possible.

For example, I'm not driving to Rockville for a gyro but would definitely get it delivered. Something is better than nothing, no?
