Veloce by Pizzeria Paradise to be open this Spring : Washington, D.C.
Downtown D.C. pizza lovers rejoice. Chef/Owner Ruth Gresser of Pizzeria Paradise will be opening Veloce, a quick service pizza restaurant serving personal sized veggie and meat pizzas, calzones, sandwiches and salads, later this Spring.
Veloce's menu will feature composed breakfast and lunch pizzas, like the Rooster, which features basil pesto sauce, goat cheese, house-made chicken sausage, sweet red pepper and pine nuts. Sauces and sausages will all be made in-house using organic and local ingredients whenever possible, while a wide variety of cheese, protein and vegetable toppings will be available and sourced from small, quality producers.
Patrons can also build their own pizzas and will have the option of four different crusts including white, whole wheat, mixed grains and seeds or gluten-free.
Veloce will be located in Downtown Washington at 1828 L Street, NW. A final menu, operating hours and opening information will be available later this spring.
