A new pizza place opened in a small apartment in Oak Lawn, Dallas and it is a peculiar one according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,
“Meet Palace Pizza: It’s a 1-year-old pop-up with very few rules, no Yelp reviews, and one stunningly-great plain cheese pizza. Cho is dreaming it all up as he goes.
He’s got one shaker of red pepper flakes and a burgeoning collection of to-go pizza boxes. Cho is offering a limited run of pizzas, one day a week on Wednesdays. Message him on Instagram, and he’ll bake you up a pie. Where’s it going from there? He’s playing it by ear and he’s open to anything. The pizzas are donation-only, since Cho can’t actually sell hot food from home because of Texas Cottage Food Law.”
Owner Peter Cho’s love of pizza started when he was working at Papa John’s as a highschool student according to a Local Today’s article. They say,
“As a high school student in Texas, Cho worked at Papa John’s. He reminisces fondly (so much so that he’s toying with the idea of making his own version of Papa John’s bomb-proof garlic butter dipping sauce). From there his love for the piece grew, and while living in Portland, Oregon, he was inspired by working at Bryan Spangler’s institution Apizza Scholls. Cho settled in Dallas during the pandemic, spending time in the kitchens at Cane Rosso and Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty.”
The current set up Peter Cho has is not permanent, and he is currently brainstorming ideas for a business. His goal is to be able to serve slices on the go at affordable prices.
