ORLANDO, Fla. – The Detroit-style pizza concept from the owner of Tin & Taco is now in its soft opening in Orlando’s SoDo neighborhood.

SoDough Square started its soft-opening hours Thursday, according to a Facebook post. The restaurant is located at 419 E. Michigan St., right next door to a Tin & Taco location.


During the soft opening, the restaurant is only open Thursday thru Sunday from 4 p.m. until it is sold out, according to the business’ website. SoDough is also only selling 100 pizzas per day and offering only four varieties, though the menu will eventually offer 10 different pies.
