Pizaro’s Pizza is home to Houston’s original Napoletana pizzeria and now we offer Detroit and New York style pizzas as well! All dough, tomato sauce, mozzarella, and mozzarella-blend, are made fresh in-house daily.
Dine-in or Carry-out, you can now order online.
What is Napoletana Pizza?
Based on the use of simple ingredients imported from Naples, Italy:
Type “00” flour
San Marzano style tomatoes.
Pizzas must be cooked at a blistering 900 degrees for no more than 90 seconds in a bell shaped wood fired oven.
Pizzas are approximately 12” in diameter with a soft cornicione (outer crust) patina crunch and small blisters (char). They will be very thin with a soft wet center and lightly topped. Remember: Less is More.
What is Detroit Style Pizza?
A square shaped pan style pizza, similar to Sicilian style:
Half-inch thick bread made from our Type “00” flour
Cooked twice in a blue steel pan (made in Detroit Michigan)
Cheddar cheese is layered into the pan along with toppings (before the second bake)
Topped off with a generous amount of our house made tomato sauce
Pizzas are cut into squares; have a spongy soft interior with a crispy and crunchy cheddar crust.
What is New York Style?
Predominately known as the classic “American” pizza.
Soft yet crunchy crust
Made from domestic ingredients: flour, tomatoes and mozzarella
Expect pops of flavor and textures
These pizzas contain a higher gluten content and will be able to handle more generous amounts of toppings.
