"National Pizza Week, just gives our guests another reason to enjoy our coal-fired brick oven pizza,” said Chief Executive Officer Joe Ciolli. “While pepperoni is by far the most popular pizza this week, and throughout the year, we encourage our guests to mix it up and try something new. The great thing about Grimaldi’s pizza is there is no wrong combination, it’s all delicious!”
In the world of pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution that has garnered more awards than any other pizzeria in the country with more celebrity sightings than most 5-star restaurants. Using only the freshest ingredients, a “secret recipe” pizza sauce, handmade mozzarella cheese and dough, Grimaldi’s serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family oriented pizzeria.
Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria delivers a unique flavor and consistency that is just not possible from wood or gas ovens. Weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day, the oven heats up to 1,200 degrees. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi’s famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year.
It has been said that the secret to true New York-style pizza is the water. Grimaldi’s believes that too, going to great lengths to keep the integrity of the water used in the Brooklyn pizzeria by hiring a chemist to analyze and recreate the mineral content and exact composition of the water to ensure the dough tastes the same in all of their locations.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria currently owns and operates twenty-nine locations nationally, including locations in Arizona, Texas, Florida, Nevada, and South Carolina. Additional locations are expected in California and Colorado, in 2013. Grimaldi’s offers guests a selection of beers as well as an extensive list of wines (by the glass and bottle) to complement their freshly prepared salads, hand tossed pizzas, calzones and famous desserts.
