Emma's Pizza gives you full artistic license over your thin-crust meal—you can customize your pizza with three sauces and more than 30 toppings, including red bliss potatoes, thyme-roasted mushrooms, and dried cranberries. The restaurant's proximity to the Kendall Square Cinema allows for especially cheesy dates.
CookRadar connects foodies with local chefs, outside the usual contexts of a restaurant or small-town chain gang. Using the website, homemakers can register as cooks in order to make money doing what they love: cooking homemade food. For their part, foodies browse the ever-growing network of neighborhood food providers, then stop by a nearby home to pick up dinner or maybe even sit down for a meal. CookRadar vets their amateur cooks, and customers can also rate their experience, helping amateurs improve on their service or rewarding them for a delicious meal.
The folks at Scissors and Pie are on a mission. Their enemy is what they call the "evil pizza wheel," and they fight it by making pizza the old-fashioned way: hand-cut from square slices and priced by weight. Aside from being true to Roman traditions, this method benefits customers, who can choose to order a single giant slice or a number of smaller slices to sample the variety of pies available on a given day. Whether they're topped with salami or zucchini, all of the slices are baked until that precise moment when the dough rises softly and whispers, "I am ready to be eaten."
