Apizza to Open at the Hub on Causeway Development in Boston

It looks like more New Haven-style pizza is on its way to Boston, and the owner of a South End restaurant is behind the place.

Eater Boston is reporting (via The Boston Globe) that Douglass Williams of Mida on Tremont Street is planning to open Apizza at the Hub on Causeway, which is currently being built at the site of the old Boston Garden by North Station. The upcoming eatery will offer New Haven-style thin-crust "apizza" by the slice or as a whole pie while also serving thicker Roman-style pizza by the slice or by the tray. Because of its location within a development that will include residential and office space along with restaurants and shops, the pies at Apizza will be cooked in an electric oven rather than the more traditional coal-fired oven, but the oven will be able to cook pizzas at temperatures of 1,000 degrees. If all goes as planned, Apizza could be opening sometime in the fall.

Currently, about the only options for New Haven-style pizza in the Greater Boston area are at locations of Pepe's in Chestnut Hill and Burlington; Roman-style pizza can be found at a few spots, including Eataly at the Pru, T&B Pizza in Somerville's Union Square, and Monti at Time Out Market Boston in the Fenway neighborhood.

Williams first opened Mida in the fall of 2016, with the restaurant featuring Italian fare including dishes found in various parts of Italy.
