Former Iggie’s Pizza owners land in Towson with Local Pie

0 Written by: | Tuesday, Feb 24, 2015 3:53pm

People are always asking each other…what’s your favorite crab cake in town? Burger? Pizza? On that last one, pretty consistently, Iggie’s was my answer. The place was so charming and easy and I flipped for the Cipolla and Funghi pies and so many others. They had thin crust pizzas, San Pellegrino sodas (plus BYOB) and it was dog friendly (love.) It was just easy to go there and feel comfortable. I spent many a Sunday afternoon sitting outside with a friend, pizza and a bottle of vino.
