I first heard of 1000 Degrees Pizza when it was served as an ad on my Facebook feed. At first I got it mixed up with 10,000 Degrees which is a nonprofit I donate to that helps people get their college degrees. Oops, no, 1000 Degrees had one less zero and churned out pizzas instead of diplomas.
I love ordering online because you can peruse the menu at your leisure, order exactly what you want and pay up front. I did that and went about my errands, timing it so that I arrived at 1000 Degrees a couple of minutes before my scheduled pick up time.
I was there during an off hour so it was rather empty. I let the guy behind the counter know I was there to pick up my order and waited. After a couple of minutes, a man who looked like he was the pizza chef approached me and apologized that my order wasn’t ready yet. There was some kind of snafu or mixup between what I ordered and what he made so they needed a few more minutes. Honestly, I didn’t mind (can’t sweat the small stuff) and he was so nice about it and I could tell he felt bad. I assured him it was okay and sat down to wait. It took another 10 minutes, none of which was wasted since I had my iphone, the kindle app on it and an e-book.
My pizza was boxed and ready to go, piping hot. That was my last errand so I was able to get home and enjoy a late lunch. The pizza was pretty good. It wasn’t deep dish (you know my weakness for deep dish) but as a “normal” crust pizza, I liked it. I had a couple of slices (really, just a couple) and froze the rest to eat later. Can’t beat the convenience, they were genuinely contrite about the mixup and seemed very pleasant. I’d go again.
