Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza Is Opening in Reading
A Florida-based chain of pizza spots that recently opened its first Boston-area location southwest of the city is going to be opening another one, with this one in the northern suburbs.
According to an article in the MetroWest Daily News, Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza is planning to open in Reading, which will either be the second or third location to come to Massachusetts, depending on whether another location in Northborough opens before or after it. (As of now, the sole location in the region is a shop that recently opened at University Station in Westwood.) Based on its other restaurants, expect the Reading location of Anthony's to feature traditional coal oven pizza that is cooked in an 800-degree oven, with salads, sandwiches, and Italian meals available as well.

(It also appears that the restaurant will open later this year.)]
