The scoop: In these gas-conscious times, why not dine at a cycling-themed pizzeria? Owner and bike enthusiast Matthew McClellan, 32, took over the spot of former Nick-N-Willy's three months ago. The pie: Loads of cheese that can get a little chewy once it coagulates (not a bad thing); not much sauce. The crust is thin but not crunchy — a chewy center wrapped in pleasant crispness. The 24 toppings are abundantly applied, including interesting toppers like Mandarin oranges, feta cheese and artichoke hearts. Specialties: Thirteen specialty pies, from the Salad Pizza (basil pesto topped with a fresh garden salad) to the MAClellan (white garlic sauce, mozzarella, spinach, roma tomatoes, mushrooms, spicy sausage and fresh basil). Prices: Pies $6.99 to $15.99; slices $2.50 and up. Takeout or dine in? Cyclists will love the bike paraphernalia on the walls, but they deliver, with no set delivery radius, and offer you-bake, take-home pies.
