Our pizza is thin crust – but it is most certainly not “NY Style”.
You won’t find huge “crispy” slices overloaded with salt, oregano, and low quality toppings. You also won’t find a “meat lovers”, a “supreme”, or a side of ranch dressing to dip your crust.
What you will find is authentic Neapolitan pizza made according to the strict guidelines of the Associazone Verace Pizza Napoletana - the official quality control watchdogs of true pizza. So what’s the big deal about Neapolitan Pizza?
Our dough is made in-house, never frozen, from imported, all natural “Double Zero” Italian flour. The flour is not enriched, bleached or bromated – simply wheat berries ground by stone. The recipe is centuries old and is made only with flour, water, sea salt, and natural yeast. We proof our dough the traditional Neapolitan way to give it a yeasty flavor, crunchy exterior and delicate, chewy interior.
Our tomato sauce is made daily from hand-crushed San Marzano tomatoes - crushing them by hand ensures we don’t break any of the seeds and make the sauce bitter. San Marzano is not a label or a brand, but a specific type of tomato grown in limited quantities and harvested by hand in San Marzano, Italy – a small town near Mt. Vesuvius and just south of Naples. They have a naturally sweet, tangy, perfectly balanced flavor because the rich volcanic soil acts as a filter for impurities.
Our mozzarella, or fior di latte, is hand-pulled in house daily from fresh mozzarella curd. This mildly flavored cheese is able to withstand the 900 degree temperatures in our wood-fired oven without drying out. You will not find part-skim, low moisture mozzarella on any of our pizzas.
Our cured meats are imported from Salumeria Biellese in New York. Making sausages and salamis since 1925 with only certified Berkshire pork and without artificial colors and flavors, Saulmeria Biellese has a simple philosophy – artisinal salumi takes time. Our Italian sausage is made just down the street from us at Jimmy’s Food Store, of course!
Our oven was imported from Italy and hand-made by third generation Neapolitan oven builder Stefano Ferrara. Made of refractory cement, volcanic sand and covered with custome glass tiles, it is fired with Texas hardwoods – never electricity or gas – to 900 degrees and will cook your pizza in under 60-75 seconds.
