“When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie….it’s Inizio”… I had the pleasure of being invited to try out the ONLY Neapolitan pizza joint in the city. INIZIO PIZZA NEAPOLETANA. They use an old world technique with a new authentic experience. I was floored by how fresh the ingredients were and how fast the pizzas were cooked. The middle picture are the wood fired ovens that were custom made and shipped from Italy. They also get all the San Marzano tomatoes imported from Italy as well. These ovens will cook your pizza in 90 seconds. It’s super fast and it makes that great chargrilled crust you get around the edges. Top pic is my Margherita Pizza with San Marzano Tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella, basil, garlic, and pecorino cheese. It’s simple, yet full of flavor from the fresh ingredients. It makes all the difference in the world. Now for the finale….HOLY CANNOLI (bottom pic)….dear Lord, these are the best cannolis I’ve had in my life. The pistachio and chocolate chip cannolis. These things by themselves are dangerous. I could’ve eaten a dozen of these in one sitting. I truly felt like I was in a little town in Italy while dining here. Staff, food, desserts, atmosphere will make you feel so at home and cozy. You can actually see the pizza guy making your pizza fresh to order too! Check it out if you want an authentic Neapolitan pizza. One of the best pizza places in Queen City!!!
