Sometimes, the hardest part of satisfying a craving is deciding where to go to do it.

The next time you’re hankering for a saucy pie, trust General Assembly.

Whether you’re wanting a traditional tomatoey bite or something a little more off-the-beaten-path, you’ll find it at GA.

Chef Cale Elliott-Armstrong and internationally-renowned pizza consultant Chef Anthony Falco, who’s formerly known as the Pizza Czar at Roberta’s in Brooklyn, developed the menu. And the flavours are next-level.

Take the lamb borghini, for example. For the days when you can’t choose between ‘za or za’atar… you don’t have to. House lamb sausage hangs out with onion, za’atar, labneh, mint and parsley for an explosion of flavour.

And to settle the debate about whether or not pineapple should be allowed on pizza (ahem… it should), the porky pine was made with the inclusion of the fruit top-of-mind.

Pineapple combines with tomato, aged mozz, ricotta, double-smoked bacon, jalapeño and onion to offer sweet and salty in every bite.

And if you’d prefer to opt for lighter fare, the salad selection is something to behold. From Arugula Apple, Caesar and Caprese are only a few of the fresh options available, made-to-order.

The Basic Beach is topped with your classic breakfast foods: aged mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, double-smoked bacon, black pepper and egg.

And mushroom-lovers can enjoy the Breakfast of Champignons, made with taleggio, oyster mushroom, roasted cremini and egg.

Other options feature arugula and jalapeño, offering a little bite and kick for those looking to jump-start the day.

And there are wine, beer and cocktail options that perfectly complement the levelled-up pizzas on the menu.

Designed to give those munching a view of the pizza-making process, the space features a glass encased dough room and an open-kitchen environment.

Dine in or take your food to go, and know that this spot doesn’t take resos. They’re also cashless— a futuristic move which aligns perfectly with the modern take they’re serving on classic Italian pies.
