Getting a pizza that’s ready to eat in three minutes sounds like something to be skeptical about, but ever since 1000 Degrees opened on Aug. 17, this quick fix can come true.

With six types of pizza listed on the menu, the ability to build your own pizza makes it an infinite amount of choices. You pick the size and type of dough, a sauce, cheese, meats and veggies. This is similar to how Subway works. If you don’t want pizza, there are other options like wings, salads, breadsticks, and desert, all within an affordable price.

Ordering the basic cheese pizza and only spending $5 was an excellent choice for a girl who likes her pizza plain. The crust was nice and thin and there wasn’t a lot of red sauce, which was perfect. I also ordered a slice of bacon mac and cheese, with mac and cheese base instead of red sauce, which was also a pretty good choice if you are looking for something a little extra cheesy. The pieces of bacon gave it a bit more of a salty kick, which worked really well with the overflowing cheese.

Even though not much can go wrong with pizza, I’d have to say I had a bit of trouble trying to eat it. For me, the cheese kept on slipping off forcing me to pick it up and put it back on. I eventually became too frustrated with not being able to take a single bite without the cheese staying on. This left me to be a person who no one trusts because they eat their pizza with utensils instead of their hands.

However, the service was amazing and made customers feel welcomed. As soon as new customers walk in they get the menu explained by a person who has smile from ear to ear on their face.

The space was perfect, with enough space to sit and eat and enough to order and be in line. However, the location itself is a bit challenging to get to due to the construction on the roads.

1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria is a decent place. It wasn’t amazing, tastewise, but if you are looking for a fast, cheap and a choice to build your own pizza, then 1000 Degrees just might be for you.
