New Pizzeria Looking to Locate in Burlington

By: Rich Hosford

A Boston-based pizzeria is looking to fill an empty location in Burlington. 


According to an application with the Planning Department, Upper Crust Pizzeria is looking to move into the vacant spot in the Burlington Marketplace at 68-110 Mall Road, that was formerly occupied by Yeh Frozen Yogurt. 


The application said the restaurant would occupy the same square footage as Yeh. It will offer both lunch and dinner but is likely to be busier during the evening hours. 


According to its web site, The Upper Crust Pizzeria was founded on Beacon Hill’s historic Charles Street in 2001. Since that time the business has expanded through the Boston area, with locations in Lexington, Brookline, Cambridge, the South End and Watertown, among others. It will also open new locations soon in Arlington, Virginia; Washington D.C. and Beverly Hill, California. 


“In January 2013, new owners and management expanded upon the original concept: use fresh ingredients in traditional and unexpected ways on top of a flavorful crust,” the site states. 


The site explains the concept of the pizzeria’s menu, which has a slightly higher-end price point with a cheese running at $16.50 and most specialty pizza's in the $19 to $21 range. 


“The menu has grown from classic combos to more unique and daring pairings, including pizzas like The Uncommon, The Fenway, Cameron’s BBQ and more,” it reads. “Any pizza can be made white (without tomato sauce) or red (without cheese) and is available on our traditional, whole wheat or gluten-free crust.” 


The application is scheduled to open with the Planning Board on November 19.
