"an excellent and friendly staff who were excited about their product" - Kristi A. (Yelp)
We are incredibly proud to be the only pizzeria on the island to offer 4 gourmet pizza styles under one roof! Each style has its own special variations in dough, cheese, toppings, and baking method. We want to make sure that you get the perfect pizza for you, so we’ve put together this glossary of pizza styles and terms so that you can keep them straight!
New York Style
Chicago Deep Dish
Calzone:A calzone is a half-moon shaped, folded pizza that originated in Naples. It is oven baked and served with sauce on the side.
Stromboli:Originated in Philidelphia in 1950. It is long and narrow like an Italian sub sandwich wrapped in pizza crust. Unlike the calzone, a stromboli often has sauce baked inside.
Pepperoni Rolls:Originated in West Virginia in 1927 as a lunch option for coal miners. Similar to a stromboli, but more stout and plump. During baking, the fats in the pepperoni (which are hard at room temperature) melt, resulting in a spicy oil suffusing into the bread.
Soppressata:An Italian pressed pork salami that is dry-cured.
Coppa Ham:A traditional Italian pork cold cut made from the dry-cured muscle of the shoulder or neck. It is a whole muscle salume and typically, sliced very thin.
Prosciutto di Parma:A dry-cured ham that comes from Parma, Italy. It is usually thinly sliced and made from a pig's or a wild boar's hind leg or thigh.
Parmigiano Reggiano:Often called the "King of Cheeses," this parmesan cheese is made from unpasteurized cow's milk. It is named after the Italian provinces where it is produced: Parmigiano is the Italian adjective for Parma and Reggiano that for Reggio Emilia.
Pecorino Romano:It is a hard, salty Italian cheese that is often used for grating and is made out of sheep's milk. One of Italy’s oldest cheeses.
Peel:A flat, shovel-like tool used by bakers to slide pizzas and other baked goods in and out of an oven. It can be made of wood or metal.
Hawaii’s only pizzeria with four gourmet pizza styles under one roof!
We are a locally run business that is incredibly passionate about pizza! We pride ourselves on using the most authentic and fresh ingredients possible. We import meat, cheese, and tomatoes directly from Italy. We have even shipped two ovens from there! Also, if we aren’t getting Italian ingredients, we try our best to use local produce and we even grow some of our own herbs! We are the only pizzeria in Hawaii to serve four authentic styles of pizza, so we have something for everyone! Come on in and see for yourself what sets us apart from the rest!
