38 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 13 - June 19, 2003 D.P. Dough delivers pizza alternative in Dewey By Bridin Reynolds Hughes The personalities behind the new D.P. Dough in Dewey Beach will be familiar to fans of the Newark eatery of the same name. The four friends have brought a franchise of the small cliain to town and opened June 4. Specializing in calzones and fresh salads, D.P. Dough is most often found near major college campuses, including the Universi- ty of Delaware (UD). UD gradu- ates David Schylling, Ray Fleck and Joel Rosenthal, who met while working at the Newark D.P. Dough, recently decided to invest in the Dewey venture with their former boss Ed Rieth. "D.P. Dough is the pizza alter- native; people love the calzones," said Fleck, who said undergrads and alums of several East Coast colleges have gone into the Dewey store looking for a favorite calzone. "One guy from Penn State told me it made his summer that we were here." The menu features more than 40 cleverly named calzone - or Zone - combinations, all made with freshly baked dough stuffed with generous portions. High on the list of favorites are the Buffer Zone, a calzone filled with bread: ed chicken, blue cheese, hot sauce and mozzarella; the Testing Zone with chicken, pesto and mozzarel- la; and the End Zone, a D.P Dough special bursting with steak, pep- pers, onions and mozzarella. The Construction Zone allows for customizing but Schylling laughed, "A lot of times, when people pick four items and it is al- ready a calzone on the menu. Such a large menu can be intimi- dating so they don't read it through. Some find one calzone and stick with it, while others, like myself, work their way through the whole menu." In a unique attempt at customer service, D.P. Dough is offering de- livery within Dewey via bicycle. "There is a demand for delivery and we found with the traffic and U-turns that we can get there as fast or faster by bike," said Schylling. The owners would like to extend their services into after hours but under: a recent Dewey ordinance, new eateries are not al- lowed to take orders after 1 a.m. "That is our only gripe with be- ing here. In Newark, a bulk of our business is after hours," said Fleck. Existing eateries in the re- sort were grandfathered under the ordinance. "We understand their intent is to keep drunk people off the streets, but there are about 12 other places allowed to be open. We should be able to compete fair- ly," he said. A petition to be allowed to serve its menu late night has drawn sev- eral dozen signatures already and will be presented to Dewey Beach Town Council. For now, the owners hope their quick servic,.ga.tensive cal- zone menu ke ttomers com- ..... :,. . . ing early and often. In addition to calzones, the D.E Dough menu boasts an impressive offering of salads, including chef, Caesar and Greek. Create-your- own salads can begin with a ro- maine and iceberg garden base or a spinach base for $3.25. Veggie standbys like cucumbers and carrots can be added and share-the-menu, with other special toppings such as sundried toma- toes, feta, black olives and broc- coli is also available. Frozen treats from Ben & Jerry's are also available at the Dewey D.P. Dough, including Cookie Dough, Brownie Batter and Making Whoopie Pie ice cream and Phish Food and Cherry Garcia yogurts. D.P. Dough is located at 1505 Highway One and is currently open from 11 a.m to 1 a.m. For more information call 226-4600.
