After last year’s elections swept a record number of women into office, they’re finally getting some dough. Literally.“ I’m sure there would be many people who would say that there shouldn’t be any politics in pizza,” said chef Ruth Gresser, who owns D.C. mainstay Pizzeria Paradiso. But that hasn’t stopped her from creating a yearlong homage to women who lead.
Each week, all locations of the Neapolitan-style pizza shop will serve pies inspired by states with women in power. This week, for example, diners can try a "New York Super Bowl Pizza" with Buffalo tomato sauce, chicken, light gorgonzola, and fontina ($15 for a 9-inch and $20 for a 12-inch pizza).
The fifth Pizzeria Paradiso location boasts everything fans have come to expect from Ruth Gresser’s 27-year-old pizza-and-craft beer chain, with the added bonus of extra room.
Spring Valley was a natural place for the owner of one of the area’s most popular chain-lettes to open a fifth branch.
