The brainchild of two Tail Up Goat alums, Martha Dear quickly became one of DC’s favorite pie shops after it opened at the end of 2020. Together, the couple dish out a limited daily amount of Neapolitan-style sourdough pies from their basement-level location. Unique flavors are the name of the game at Martha Dear thanks to a sourdough crust and Mediterranean influences. The shop is named after the chef’s Greek mother, so it’s only appropriate that ingredients like braised squid and pork ‘nduja make regular appearances on the menu. If you plan on taking your pizza home, don’t dilly dally when it comes to placing that order. Martha Dear’s small operation means limited pies, and a pick-up time is required so order ahead online.
