There’s nothing that says Friday night quite like going out for pizza. So, it was no surprise that during the dinner rush on a Friday night in February, My Pie pizzeria in Holladay was a full house.
Travis Johnson is the owner and loves getting out there to meet with diners. “Our dinner rush is really busy, so that’s great. People really like eating here. Our slogan is ‘Pizza Your Way’ and there is something for everyone,” Johnson said.
Patterned after the traditional NYC pie, there’s sure to be a pie here to please. “We have all the traditional pies like margherita and a white pie,” Johnson said.
There are also more non-traditional flavors. “One of our most popular is the pesto my chicken flavor, which includes pizza sauce, parmesan, fresh mozzarella, chicken bacon and a pesto drizzle,” Johnson said.
And if you like your pie a little more adventurous or spicy: “We also offer a Greek pie, a vegan pie and the spicy butcher pie with fra diavolo sauce,” said Johnson.
In addition to the menu of pizza flavors, there’s always the option to create your own. “That’s where the name comes from — My Pie,” said Johnson.
The pies are small enough for one (but work to share if you’re not as hungry), so when you make your own there’s no trying to please everyone with the toppings. Add whatever you want, and leave off what you don’t.
“When you choose to create your own pizza, there are dozens of possibilities. From the crust offerings of white, wheat and gluten-free to the sauce to the meat and veggie toppings, you can have it all custom made. We even have a cheese option that is dairy-free,” said Johnson.
One thing was obvious: My Pie is family and kid friendly. “We have a kid’s meal called the lil’ piezanos. It’s half the size of a standard pie, and kids can choose a cheese or pepperoni pie and a drink. And each meal comes with ‘playdough,” which the kids love,” said Johnson.
The playdough is a small ball of pizza dough. While waiting for their order, kids are occupied rolling and squishing and forming their own dough, made with all-edible ingredients — just in case it ends up in their mouths.
Though most people come for the pies, the extras are worth the visit. “We have an extensive menu of Italian sodas, and we can mix cream and whipped cream into any of them,” said Johnson.
Other temptations are the garlic knots starter — delicious rolls smothered in garlic butter. And just try to pass up the messy-looking-in-the-best-possible-way cookies, crammed with chocolate chunks, peanut butter cups, Oreos, pretzels or a combination of all of the above.
My Pie also has a member rewards program. Download the app and get started earning your frequent pie’er points.
“My Pie Holladay really is the place for picky eaters, individuals with diet restrictions and families who just can’t agree on a pizza flavor. There is something for everyone here,” Johnson said.
My Pie is part of the booming and well-developed business area located at 4655 S. 2300 East, near Harmon’s and Great Harvest.
