Rock’n Dough Pizza Co., has been a much-loved food truck in Memphis for awhile, but now they also have a storefront in East Memphis.
I went for the first time today for lunch, and it was amazeballs! I almost wish they’d opened a place farther from my workplace, because my metabolism isn’t what it used to be, and it’s dangerous to know that on a daily basis I’m less than a five minute drive from their delicious pizza. According to their facebook, the pizza is cooked on pizza stones heated to a ridiculous 700 degrees, and hickory wood is used to give the pizza a distinct Memphis flavor. The inside is very red and cute, and if everyone thinks they’re as awesome as I do they’ll need to expand soon, because there are only about seven tables for dine-in customers.
I opted to go with the house favorite – the Margherita pizza, and a farmer’s market salad. The staff was incredibly friendly, happy to explain what was in everything, and wore hilarious shirts with giant pizzas on them. After I’d ordered, I was directed by the nice pizza man to tell his momma who was working the register what I had ordered so I could pay and get my drink.
Less than 7 minutes after I sat down my food was delivered, and it was a beauty to behold! The pizza was extra saucy and had olive oil drizzled over it, and also plenty of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. I’m not usually a pizza crust eater. I’d rather save more room for cheesy goodness, but the crust on this pizza was so chewy delicious that I ate it all, and that’s definitely not something I do very often. The salad was lovingly prepared with fresh red and yellow bell pepper, spring mix, english cucumber, and yellow and red grape tomatoes with a housemade vinaigrette. And as you can see, the one slice I ordered was really two! All this, drink included, was only $9.83 before tip!
Definitely visit Rock’n Dough and give them your money. They’re a local company putting out fresh, delicious, affordable food with a Memphis twist in a friendly atmosphere. Hey guys, do you plan on getting beer anytime soon? It would be pretty epic to sneak away from the office for a slice and a Ghost River at lunch.1243 Ridgeway Road Memphis, TN 38119 Phone: 901-435-6238 Email: email@example.com
