Side Dishes: Take-out pizzeria to open in Burlington's South End

by

comment

Playing foil to a few nearby artisan pizzerias, a new take-out joint will be offering pizza by the slice at the southwest corner of Maple and St. Paul streets in Burlington.

Inside Sofia’s Pizzeria, scheduled to open later this summer, co-owner Omer Alicic plans to sell New York-style slices “with thin crust and good cheese,” as well as a selection of pita breads stuffed with cheese and meat.

“Everywhere you go, pizza is expensive. I think pizza should cost 99 cents a slice,” says Alicic, who works as a contractor but counts time at Dino’s Pizza on his résumé.

Alicic, who is originally from Bosnia, says his wife will run the kitchen. Sofia’s will offer free local delivery and a few outside tables. “It’ll be a place to grab a slice of pizza quick,” Alicic says.
