Check Out The Newest Pizza Joint In Baton Rouge

Move over Mellow Mushroom, there’s a new pizza joint in town. 

If you are anything like me, you were devastated to hear that Mellow Mushroom was going out of business. But the upside to it, a new pizza joint moving into the Burbank University View Plaza.

Introducing to you, Motza’s Pizza Pub. As of April 7, this non-traditional pub opened its doors to the Baton Rouge community preparing pizzas and calzones…but that not it. Motza’s also offers stuffed burgers and gourmet dogs.

Motza’s owner, Mark Daigle, said to look out for the “Motza Musts” throughout the menu.

“We have the alligator dog which is our Motza Must, and our cream cheese bacon jalapeño burger that’s stuffed. It is the signature one that we do.”
