That’s right! The standard that was previously set in Asheville North Carolina when it comes to pizza has definitely been raised. New York Style Pizza was the hot item on the scene years ago, but times are changing. With pizza chefs and owners sincerely concerned about the healthy and organic ingredients used to make their dough plus the meats, cheeses & vegetables they put on the pizza; the folks in our community now have the option of eating better.
Standard Pizza started out years ago in west Asheville on Haywood Rd in an old garage building that is still going strong. Then just a few days ago, they expanded to a new location in the Biltmore Village area, right in front of the new Hi-Wire Brewing Big Top and across the parking lot from Appalachian Vintner. And Sugar Shack Donuts is also set to open right across the street. Imagine that triangle… Pizza, Beer, and Donuts! Yes, real estate just went up on this end of town.
In the new Standard Pizza shop, they have a ping-pong table, shuffleboard, cornhole boards, and a outdoor patio. A wonderful community spot for the whole family.
Some are calling this area, right below Marriott Residence Inn; the Biltmore Slope (or the slope to Biltmore), while other are calling it Biltmore North. Either way, the road from downtown Asheville to Biltmore Village and to the Biltmore Estate is about to go BOOM!
