PIZZA
To have a great, traditional New York pizza, you need to have a coal-fired brick oven. Other ovens can’t produce the extreme heat (850°) & impart the crust with the right amount of crispiness & smokiness that a coal brick oven can. We use fresh mozzarella imported from New York’s Little Italy, imported Italian tomatoes in our sauce, & specialty flour to produce a pizza that has a smoky thin crust & the richest robust flavors. For an authentic New York Style, charred-crust pizza, ask for your pizza to be cooked “Well-Done”.

All Centro pizzas are made with olive oil & garlic
