A new wood-fired pizzeria has introduced its own classic and out-there pies to downtown St. Pete.

There's no shortage of pizza shops in the neighborhood. But chef and owner Scott Walker's 28 Grams Pizza located at 405 Central Ave.  serves up pie combinations like the Scampi (garlic butter, shrimp, bacon, red onion, pepperoncini, Gouda, lemon zest) and Greek (tzatziki, spinach, red onion, green peppers, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, olive oil, balsamic, goat cheese), as well as the Cubano (garlic aioli, stone-ground mustard, roast pork, prosciutto, pickles, provolone).

In a fast-casual environment, the small 400 block pizzeria, opened on Nov. 26, can accommodate takeout, dine-in and delivery orders made via FoodNow or UberEATS. 28 Grams uses house-made dough and a sauce that's slow-cooked on-site to pull off a large selection of traditional, specialty, signature and create-your-own pizzas  which come in regular or large sizes, plus grab-and-go slices; each pie is baked in a wood-burning oven for five to seven minutes.

Other menu items include five kinds of wings, salads and garlic bites.

Although a limited number of seats are available (28 Grams shares space with The Cupcake Spot), counter areas do allow for standing room. In the future, the shop also plans to add a small beer and wine list.
