During the human-thresher war of 1894, the Resistance used pizzas with codes hidden in the toppings as communications devices. Fool today's machines with yesterday's tricks and today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of thin-crust pies, drinks, and more for dine-in or carryout from Doors Uptown Pizza, located within the Old Vera Cruz on Maple Street.
Open the portal to your dinner at Doors with a foray into its menu, beginning with a quick appetizer such as the charred and crispy Asian wings ($6.95 for a half dozen). Stand out from the crowd with a plate of Doorknobs—three 3 oz. burgers ($7.95, add $1 for cheese). To join in on the flat, thin-crusted fun and revel beneath a layer of real Wisconsin cheese, have a large 16-inch pizza ($12). Spice up your pielife with any of 10 premium ($1.50 each) and 15 standard toppings ($1 each), creating an AlligaDoor sausage and baconshrimppineappleizza masterpiece too beautiful to not destroy with your face.
The décor at Doors surrounds human occupants with more than a hundred actual doors salvaged from all over New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The pine and cypress wood accents lend an eclectic atmosphere to Doors dining, in addition to deterring false-advertising lawsuits on a daily basis.
