Peng’s Pizza Pies (website, instagram) opened for business in Biddeford Wednesday. It is located at 128 Main Street in the storefront adjacent to Sweetcream Dairy. There was a strong interest in the new pizzeria and they sold out within 90 minutes of opening their doors.
Peng’s is serving crispy thin-crust pies made with naturally leavened dough which stylistically owner Chris Daniels describes as New York meets New Haven. The opening day menu (see below) included six signature pizzas along with a Caesar salad and Basque cheesecake.
Primarily a takeout business, Peng’s also has 8 seats for indoor dining. You can order online.
Daniels has been a professional baker since 2008—in Maine he’s worked at Tandem Bakery, at Belleville and at Rover Bagel. The restaurant is named for Daniels’ father Bill whose nickname was Peng.
Peng’s will be open Wednesday through Sunday, 4 – 9 pm.
