Thinking about ordering pizza and staying in tonight to kick of your Memorial Day weekend? You could head to Malden to try Sillari’s Pizza, a new spot from chef Scott Sillari and Somerville butcher Michael Dulock (M.F. Dulock Pasture-Raised Meats). It opened last night, Eater Boston reports.

The pizzeria, a neighborhood spot, keeps it simple with tomato and pesto pies topped with mushrooms, olives, peppers, sausage, pepperoni, anchovy, and other classics, plus chicken fingers and fries.

Let’s do this carry out only.

Dulock, an Everett native, opened his standout artisan butcher shop on Highland Avenue in 2012, and was outgrowing the 700-square foot space within two years. He started searching for a space to expand his charcuterie business, but found the former Cataldo’s Pizza building and ultimately decided to keep its oven.

“I am a pizza purist. I don’t want pineapple on my pizza. I think you should slim it down and limit yourself,” he previously told Boston.

Sillari came on board last year to realize the “pizza party pizza” Dulock had in mind. The chef is a New England Culinary Institute grad, who once staged with Underground Meats, a small-scale, best practices slaughterhouse in Wisconsin.

Dulock is a Sillari’s investor, but the new pizzeria is separate from M.F. Dulock Meats, Eater reported. Other investors are from Malden, and the team aims to provide the indispensable carryout style of pizza they grew up eating, Dulock said. Eventually, Sillari’s will offer delivery, but for now, it’s pick-up only.
