Upper Crust vs Figs

Dax | Dec 11, 2003 03:53 PM

Thoughts? I have only eaten at the Charles St. Figs once a few years back. I ate at the Chestnutt Hill location once this summer. I thought the pizza was good, but not great.

Last night I got my 2nd pizza ever from Upper Crust on Charles Street. The first was a roasted red pepper and onions. Excellent, wonderful thin crust, crispy on the bottom, almost regina style with a slightly blackened crust. Last night I threw caution to the wind and had roasted red pepper and bacon. They seem to use all raw ingredients. For example, the bacon was obviously placed on the pizza raw then baked as it was less than crispy. Done but not crispy. I also saw them putting raw ground beef on another pizza headed for the oven. So they told me the average large takes 25 minutes to cook, is this normally going to be sufficient time to thoroughly cook raw meats?

With that said, the pizza was great. Pork, it truly is a magical animal.
