Craft pizza never tasted so good. If you are looking for a casual lunch and still want quality food, Your Pie Perimeter is your place. Let them build you a personal, craft pizza based on your own preferences with unlimited toppings. Your Pie is located at Perimeter Place, near Perimeter Mall and convenient to I-285.
The restaurant has a long, spacious interior with a large dining area up front and a modern look. The brick oven and kitchen are located towards the back, which also features a good sized bar. Behind the bar, there is an opportunity to socialize at some large, community tables, as well as a comfortable outdoor patio. The atmosphere is great for families, business lunches, or special events.
Your Pie comes with an Italian story. In 2006, Drew French was visiting his wife’s family in Ischia, a small volcanic island located 19 miles from the city of Naples, Italy. It was there that he fell in love with the region’s use of brick ovens and the perfectly crisp dough and smoky, earthy flavors that came out of it. Inspired, French took the humbling experience home with him to open the first Your Pie in Athens, Georgia in 2008.
The Your Pie location in the Perimeter area opened in January 2015 and is a fine addition to the area. The owners, Morgan and Lisa Maclellan, are very passionate about serving quality food at a decent price. I sat down with them to hear their story and share some of the goodness coming out of the kitchen. They met while studying at UGA then transitioned to working in the corporate world in the Perimeter area and now serve many of the office workers from the same area. Both are very involved in the local community and participate in many events.
They explained that they toss their dough, hand select and fresh chop their vegetables and cook everything in the brick oven to order to ensure craft quality. Lisa expressed how they really care about their employees and support them in every way, which is reflected in the excellent service.
Some of the delicious items I savored during lunch included:
Chicken Bacon Club Panini: Freshly baked bread filled with chicken, bacon, melted mozzarella cheese, house-made ranch, spinach, and tomatoes. So good, I could have finished two!
Ischia Pizza: Pizza topped with extra virgin olive oil, fresh mozzarella cheese, tomato, fresh basil and garlic. My personal favorite.
Caprese Chopped Salad: A salad with fresh spinach, fresh mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, black pepper and house made balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Nice complement to the pizza.
The Pitmaster Pie (their fall seasonal pizza): Pizza topped with extra virgin olive oil, pulled pork, mozzarella cheese, fire-roasted balsamic onions, fresh cilantro, BBQ and ranch drizzles then finished with a scoop of house-made coleslaw. Applause for original taste and creative toppings.
For desert, a nice cool Gelato dessert hit the spot.
Your Pie Perimeter also carries a very carefully selected list of craft beers to pair with their pizza. They offer many options from local and regional breweries. It just makes sense to pair a craft beer with a craft pizza.
I really enjoyed my visit to Your Pie Perimeter and will definitely be back for more of their fantastic pizzas.
