The dining room is sterile. The college-age staff is efficient (but totally devoid of personality). But Pie in the Sky Pizza is well worth a visit, especially since the star of the show — the pizza — is some of the best in Nashville.
We ordered the restaurant’s namesake: the Pie in the Sky. The large weighs in at 112 ounces; we ordered the medium. Though what we received seemed to differ from what the menu described (“Extra dough! Two layers of sauce! Three layers of cheese!”), the dozen or so toppings were generous, fresh, and delicious.
The pie itself is what pizza should be: piping hot, stringy, loaded with meat and veggies. On the spatula, it has just the right amount of heft; from the weight alone, you know this is some stout stuff.
Paired with a cold beer (the local Yazoo Pale Ale is pretty good), this makes for a memorable meal. Recommended.
