10 Foot Pizza Brings Art and Slices to N. Rampart Street

10 Foot Pizza is the newest addition to N. Rampart Street reports Gambit. The spot, which specializes in inventive pizzas — serving many by the slice — and art, opened in late May.

10 Foot Pizza is the brainchild of owners Noah Antieau and Nic Reddy. The pair are transplants from Oregon (they previously ran Lonesome’s Pizza in Portland, but it closed last summer.)

The restaurant’s menu boasts standard and specialty pizzas — think an elote-themed pie, and a Hawaiian pizza with SPAM as a topping. There are tons of vegan options, too, most notably the “hail seitan” pie which has vegan cheese, seitan and potato chips. Customers can also build their own pizza, choosing from spirited toppings like pork rinds and fried chicken along with more standard choices.

Beyond the slices, a huge draw to 10 Foot is the art — something that’s hard to miss in the space. Walls are adorned with murals or astro turf and there’s an enormous installation of a faux magnolia tree (complete with 500 hand-painted blossoms) in the center of its bar. Really, it’s an extension of Red Truck Gallery, the street art gallery the pair also run.

The restaurant took over the spot previously occupied by Dreamy Weenies, which, naturally, slung hot dogs and closed July 2017.

10 Foot Pizza is open everyday, with food service starting at 12 noon, and going until 2am on weekdays, and 4am on weekends.
