One of Omaha’s newest pizza shops, My Pie Pizza, opened recently at 120th and Blondo streets. It’s the first location in the Midwest for this chain that focuses on custom pizzas.
It’s a tough gig, but sometimes as a blogger, I’m asked to try nearly everything on the menu of a restaurant. So, I joined a few other Omaha bloggers at My Pie one evening to try some of the best offerings of this Omaha restaurant. Here are my top picks.
5 Things to Try at My Pie Pizza
1. Husker Pizza
Only in Nebraska could you have a pizza with roasted corn on it and think, “Yep, that sounds good.”
In addition to corn, pizza has bacon and jalapeno, which adds a kick to each bite. It was one of my favorites of the night.
2. Nebraska craft beer
I like a chain that makes an effort to become a part of the neighborhood it moves into. At the My Pie location I was at, they had several Nebraska breweries represented on tap, including favorites of mine, like Nebraska Brewing Co., Infusion Brewery, and Blue Blood Brewing Co. out of Lincoln.
Side note: They have a winerator. That’s right: Wine on tap.
3. Chocolate Chip Cookie
I saved the dessert, a cookie, to sample later at home. They put some kind of voodoo magic on it, that kept it warm until I had my chance. Gooey, chocolatey goodness.
Save room for it, and you too can be rewarded with this treat.
Salads? At a pizza place? Blasphemy.
They’re good, though. I promise. The salads at My Pie didn’t seem like an after-thought. The colorful salads were flavorful and satisfying.
If your counting calories, though, request less cheese.
5. Your pick
The appeal of My Pie is that you can order your own creations using fresh ingredients and your choice of dough. The open kitchen allows you to watch it made (which is mighty speedy, like baked in 2 minutes).
Or go with some of their classics. My favorites from the night were Mr. White, a yummy cheese bread-like pizza, and the Pear-Fect Pie, a sweet and savory combo that delicious.
Tip: If you visit My Pie this month, kids 12 and younger can eat for free with an accompanying adult. Word is that this promotion may return in March, too.
