When you Think Pizza, Think Jet’s Pizza

Jet's Pizza opens its first Virginia location in Alexandria

Alexandria, VA   Have you had a Detroit pizza? If not, you need to visit Jet’s Pizza at 6 East Glebe Rd. in Alexandria, Va.  Jet’s Pizza is well known as the place to get a perfect Detroit-style pie. Jet’s also offers pizzas in a variety of other crust styles including hand-tossed round, thin, NY-style, seasoned cauliflower, and gluten-free. And, they offer pizza by the slice.

If you aren’t sure what a Detroit pizza is, here’s a brief explanation. Jet’s makes fresh dough every day for their pizza. Detroit-Style pizza dough is made from a proprietary blend of flour to Jet’s specifications. It’s kneaded and hand-pressed into thick, steel pans. The dough rises and expands into a pillow-like form in the pan creating a light and airy center, the perfect base for all sorts of toppings. The pie is smothered in cheese that caramelized as it cooks in its special steel pans. The result is a magical crispy-edged pie, made to order according to your preferences.

You create your own pizza by selecting the crust, sauces, and toppings. Jet’s offers a “Flavorize Your Crust For Free!®” option where you can add butter, Cajun, garlic, Romano cheese, and/or sesame seeds to flavor your crust. In addition to pizza, there are a variety of bread sticks, bone-in, boneless, and popcorn chicken, salads (get the ranch dressing, it’s made in-house), and calzone-style sandwich boats.

Some of the favorites to try are the Eugene Supreme. Made with Jet’s creator’s favorite toppings, the pizza is loaded with pizza sauce, mozzarella, Italian sausage, onions, green peppers, and mild peppers. We chose the eight-corner style of Detroit crust, which gave a crusty edge to each slice. The hand-tossed pizza crust is well worth your time. The crust is crunchy on the outside and soft inside, the perfect palette for your choice of toppings.

Vegetarian and vegan diners will revel in the multitude of pizza choices. The cauliflower pizza crust made with the veggie toppings of pizza sauce, mozzarella, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, black olives, and tomatoes is delish. The resident vegan pronounced the veggie pizza sans mozzarella to be a cut above many other veggie pizzas.
