Emma's Pizza: Cambridge: Kendall Square

I was attracted to Emma's Pizza because I'd read some good reviews and learned that it's owned by some nice lesbians. Thus, I went off to support my community in the form of eating pizza.

There was a wait for dinner for two, but it was only about ten minutes.

Famous Fling Salad with baby spinach, Granny Smith apple, red onion, gorgonzola cheese and toasted almonds with our special (and secret) house dressing - $7.50

The salad was pleasant but just the sum of its parts, a makeable-at-home affair, except for the "secret" dressing (which was of course why it appealed to me), but the dressing seemed just like some boring vinaigrette, not even as magical as McDonalds' secret sauce, and you know how I feel about McDonalds.

I was really happy we got to have a half and half pizza without being charged extra so that the following was $19:
#18: Artichoke hearts, baby spinach, roasted sweet potatoes, rosemary sauce, mozzarella

The dough was thin but not quite thin enough to be great thin crust pizza. It had too much flour and was strangely crisp for its not quite thin enoughness. The sweet potato clashed with the disappointing tomato sauce. I'd expected more rosemary, which I didn't taste at all, and less tomato.
#9: Thyme roasted mushrooms, baby spinach, garlic, feta, traditional sauce, mozzarella

The mushroom one was better cause of the abundance of cheese, especially the feta cheese.

I wanted to really like this place, but I just kind of liked it instead.
