New YorK Style Pizza
The NOLA Pizza Project
From the team at NOLA Brewing comes NOLA Pizza Co, an NY-style pizza joint. Combining our years of fermentation experience with our new chefs love and knowledge of pizza, we are looking forward to bringing New Orleans a slice of the Big Apple. Using our brewery to its fullest capabilities, we will be able to produce consistent, high quality water for our naturally leavened dough. Utilizing a combination of technique and quality, we strive to bring you the finest pizza, the NOLA way.
Meet Culinary Director Brandon Byrd, whose vitae boasts more than 15 years of experience in top-tier restaurants including Momofuku Noodle Bar; Kith and Kin; Lenoir; Dinner Lab and others. Byrd is no stranger to New York pizza, having worked at Manhattan’s Two Boots Pizza early in his career and more recently at Frank Pinello’s Best Pizza also in the Big Apple.
At NOLA Pizza Co, Byrd will oversee culinary operations, as well as work closely with the brewers to ensure a perfect formula for the pizza dough.
It makes a difference
It’s In The water
“There are three major components to making NYC style dough: water, yeast and fermentation,” Byrd says. “We strip everything from the water through reverse osmosis and then we add back the right levels of calcium, magnesium, & sodium ensuring the Total Dissolved Solids and the pH levels are a perfect match for NYC water. This not only provides the right elements for our 48 hour fermentation process of our dough balls, but it produces a consistently high-quality perfect pizza and crust. Our dough is naturally leavened and fermented using a sourdough starter. And finally, we use a top-of-the-line proofer which will ferment the dough at a specific temperature and humidity level for two days, giving the dough a more nuanced flavor and texture than quick-proofed dough.”
The result? A menu focused on simple, thoughtfully prepared Pizza categorized into Red, White and Square. Nothing goes better with pizza than a nice cold beer and the team at NOLA Brewing has that covered, with over 20 craft beers on tap.
