Labelled ‘Top 5 Gourmet’ by Time Out NYC, ‘Best Pizza in Manhattan’ by Daily News and ‘Best of Manhattan’ by NY Press, these pizzas are something to write home about.
Their biggest draw is the city’s finest ‘legal’ pizza. The Margherita DOC (tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, oregano, basil & extra virgin olive oil) is a pie so rich in history, a law was recently passed defining the proper way to prepare it. Other favourites include Pizza al Tartufo (Portobello mushroom pesto, cheese, fresh rosemary, and truffle oil) and Pizza San Daniele (prosciutto san Daniele, mozzarella, arugula, parmigiano, and olive oil).
Their pizzas have pedigree standard using only the highest quality organic unbleached and unbromated flour, hemp flour (additional cost), organic tomatoes and tomato sauce, hormone and anti-biotic free chicken. They also make organic gluten free pasta (any way you like it), limited gluten free pizzas and delicious homemade pastries and desserts. If you fancy some pizza inspiration, look no further…..yes, there’s even a brussel sprout pizza!
