About Timber Pizza Co.


Italian, Pizza
809 Upshur St NW
Washington, DC 20011

If you have Neapolitan fatigue, elbow your way to a picnic table at this Petworth hot spot. In the open kitchen, chef Daniela Moreira creates an almost magically pillowy dough and arrays her rounds with farm-fresh veggies, herbs, and pickled peppers. Pizzas are big enough to share—throw in a salad and a glass of rosé and call it a date night. Also good: Empanadas; Bentley pizza (soppresatta, Peruvian peppers); “Pretty in Pepperoni” pizza; ice-cream cones.
