Opening Day is approaching soon, and there's nothin' I love more than a freshly ordered Pizza plus a baseball game. In fact, ever since D'Amore's Pizza moved onto West 3rd St. a year and a half ago, I've made it a weekly tradition. This Friday, you should skip the hot dogs and do it too, especially since there's nothing to feel guilty about.
Check out the back of their take home menu and you'll see that – compared to Pizza Hut, Costco, Dominoes, Round Table, and Papa Johns – a slice of D'Amore's Thin Crust Cheese Pizza only has 3.8g of fat, 166 calories, 11g of carbs, and 3 Weight Watchers points. (The others range from 15g of fat to 46g, and the calories reach all the way up to a scary 840.) From the specially shipped in North End of Boston's Water in the Dough, to Grandma D's Spice Mix and July only's Tomato crop – whatever the secret is – D'Amore's cheese stands alone.
- thin 'n juicy, cheesy 'n spicy, runs down your chin in a good way Large Pepperoni Neopolitan Thin-style Crust$21.95
- way too thick crust prepared by The Sensitive Baker, but that's usually how gluten-free ones go, Vegetarian style 7" Gluten Free Pizza with Fresh Chopped Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Onion, Peppers, and Mozzarella Cheese
Once you dive into your first bite, you're gonna get an overwhelming urge to eat 2-3 more slices. I'm not gonna lie, I've totally done it before (ok fine, every time). So I strongly urge you to order a Large if you're splitting it with someone else, 'cuz you just might finish the whole pie off.
If you don't feel like choosing your own toppings, D'Amore's serves 8 Specialty Pies like their Signature Pizza Bianco minus the Tomato Sauce with Fresh Spinach, Onion, and a Ricotta Cheese blend, as well as a BBQ Chicken and Meat Lovers.
If you're feeling crazy enough to skip their incredible pizza, they also serve Salads, Paninis, Parmigianas, Pastas, and even Burgers. To drink there's Boylan All Natural Sodas, Kombucha, old-fashioned Pepsi, and Harney & Sons Juices.

Finally, and most importantly, did I mention D'Amore's is open until 4am?
Mangia Mangia after midnight!
