Previous Rating: ***** Near Perfection
I have nothing more to say other than that I mis-rated it the first time. Simply stated, Five Point Pizza makes a perfect slice of cheese pizza. The Snob has now made three follow-up visits, and each time I was served a flawless slice.
Since my first dinner time visit, I have learned about their great two-slice lunch special that includes a drink for $8. Be warned, the room is small, and you should expect to wait. If you find yourself in a hurry, you can usually find a seat at the bar to grab a quick slice or two.
The Five Points slice is a darn good one in the classic traditional sense. It has a perfect form that keeps it firmly at attention at all times. Even though the tomato sauce is light in color, it is still quite flavorful. Overall, everything about their slice is just right.
Although the Snob still thinks that Joey’s House of Pizza is the best that Music City has to offer, I predict that Five Points will repeat this year on top of the upcoming Nashville Scene’s Reader’s Poll as Best Pizza. It’s hip East Nashville location and expanded hours simply give it more visibility than Joey’s.
I never miss stopping by Five Points when I am in East Nashville.
