There was much huzzah-ing when downtown NYC pizza spot Two Boots expanded its unlikely national chain (eight stores) to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor last year; it even nabbed a City Paper Best of Baltimore award for Best Slice. There should be even more huzzah-ing now that Two Boots has relocated to a cavernous space on the ground floor of the schmancy Fitzgerald condo building in the more workaday, always-hungry area near MICA, University of Baltimore, etc. We opted for an assortment of said slices ($3.75 each): the Dude (a “cheeseburger” slice with tasso ham, andouille, ground beef, and both cheddar and mozzarella), the Earth Mother (a bounty of veggies, ordered with cheese but available without), the Night Tripper (diced sun-dried tomatoes, slices of roasted garlic, and criss-crossing stripes of jalapeno pesto), and the Super Newman (a daily special version of the regular sopresseta and Italian sausage white pie, here with tomato sauce). The Dude was a gut bomb in the best possible way, a rich, meaty munchie-beater, and the Super Newman a salty, spicy treat that looked like the same old slice but was far from it, with pizza meats that bit back for once. The veggie pies didn’t disappoint either, with the Night Tripper providing vibrant light flavors set off by a pepper kick, and the Earth Mother comforting with literally too many veggies to count, yet never overwhelming the thick but crispy wheat crust. If Baltimore’s Two Boots’ pie is this good in reheated slice form, whoa. Please note that these aren’t lunch-plus-leftovers mega-slices, but the flavors are way big for sure.
