Stop 50 Wood Fired Pizzeria

STOP 50 WOOD FIRED PIZZA

Our specialty is the authentic Naples Style Pie prepared and cooked just as it was 169 years ago in a wood-fired hearth oven at over 900° F.

Our mission is to provide our guests authentic Napoletana pizza, house-made gelato and fresh salads using only the finest fresh ingredients, cooked using time-honored traditions and served in a warm inviting atmosphere. We also offer the finest micro-crafted beer and wine.

Naples, Italy, is considered the birthplace of this style of pizza (Napoletana), dating back to 1839, and it is as much a method of rich tradition as it is a food. It is an art blending the heritage of dough-making, the complexity of fire management and the craft of maintaining fresh ingredients. This combination produces a thin-crust pie that is crispy on top and bottom while chewy in the center, powerfully aromatic, rich in flavor and full of character. The pie will have slight blackening on the cornicione (outer rim of the crust) and the bottom.

The cornicione color is from the flame “kissing” the top, while the bottom color is from the potassium-rich wood ash adding flavor.

We have discovered a profound irony in focusing on the basic, rudimentary ingredients for all our recipes. Keeping the integrity of simplicity allows the unique flavors of truly fresh ingredients to maximize the entire dish.

There is something about these most basic, simple, fundamental ingredients that is invigorating and cleansing. Our ingredients are not intended to “hide” anything, but rather to exploit their own distinct flavors, which is quite contrary to much of the food prepared today.
