After a few previews today and tomorrow, the new pizza joint from Umami Burger’s Adam Fleischman officially starts slinging pies on Tuesday, Jan. 3. This first location (yes, more are on the way) let’s you customize your thin-crust pies at the counter, promised to come out of the wood-burning oven by the time you’re done paying. Pizza your way, which is pretty much how you always order pizza, but you get the idea. [GS]
