The Most Flavorful Crust
The truest sign of a brick oven pizza can be found in the foundation of every bite: the crust.
Unlike conventional ovens, which are powered by gas or electricity, a traditional brick oven draws its heat from a real fire. The flavor of smokey, burning wood chips enhances the natural flavors of the crust, creating an unforgettably mouthwatering result.
Because the burning fire in a brick oven keeps the oven at a high, consistent temperature, the crust has the benefit of cooking remarkably quick, allowing it to cook thoroughly without drying out. The result is a chewy, moist crust that still maintains a crispy exterior. You’ll know you’re eating a brick oven pizza crust by the black, deliciously toasted bottom.
The Crispiest Vegan Toppings
While the crust provides much of the signature, toasted flavor of a brick oven pizza, the most visible signs are in the roasted toppings and bubbling sauce. At Coletta, we make use of the freshest, most creative toppings to create unforgettable flavors. In our restaurant, you will enjoy options like:
- Fresh mission figs
- Seared wild mushrooms
- Caramelized onions
- Truffle and chili oil
- Buttermilk fried chick’n
- Shaved celery
- Vegan “pepperoni” slices
In place of traditional dairy cheeses, every brick oven pizza offered at Coletta utilizes completely vegan, thus dairy-free options. Instead of plain store-bought mozzarella, you can savor a completely original blue “cheese” crema, lemon “ricotta,” or fresh vegan ‘mozzarella.’
Whether you are hoping for fresh takes on old classics or something entirely new, you’ll find the fix for your craving with the best brick oven pizza in Gramercy!
