Pizzeria Vetri Square Pie Is Closing, Will Re-Open As A Normal Pizzeria Vetri
Marc Vetri‘s experiment in square pizzas–thick-crust, Roman-style pizza al taglio–lasted about six months. Opening in October in conjunction with the Urban Outfitters (who owns the brand now) at King of Prussia Mall, the KOP pizza shop offered quick-serve pies and a whole menu of the popular rotolo (plus salads and desserts), but people just never seemed to get excited about the place. A lot of them, actually, seemed just plain mystified as to why this suburban location was so much different than the other two Pizzeria Vetri locations–the ones with the regular old round pizzas.
Well, guess what? Pizzeria Vetri Square Pie is closed now. And it’s going to stay that way until the beginning of April when it will re-open under the non-square Pizzeria Vetri brand.
People are already pretty happy about that. Here’s what Vetri himself had to say.
All of this means that PVSP is currently dark while a new (round pizza) oven is installed and the crew gets new training. Come April, it will light back up offering Pizzeria Vetri-style round pizzas, rotolo, table service and a couple of square pies as specials now and then.
