PROCESS

Our morning starts early preparing for our homemade dough, mozzarella, and sauce. Our daily ritual embodies our commitment to providing an unparalleled experience, where every element is crafted with passion and expertise.

INGREDIENTS

Everything we make begins with superior ingredients. All of our ingredients are responsibly sourced from local farms and purveyors. With us, you can taste the freshness in every bite.

PIZZA

Our dough is made fresh in house daily and gluten-free friendly. Made using different grained flour (rice, soy, sourdough, and high protein flour), our pizza is easier to digest than normal pizza.

We ferment our dough between 72 and 96 hours for optimal structure; the fermentation provides a softer and chewier crust with more complex flavor. Our dough is highly hydrated making it airier and lighter than traditional dough, as well as making it crunchy.

HOMEMADE MOZARELLA

Our homemade mozzarella is as fresh as it gets. Made in house daily by our chef, you can truly understand what fresh mozzarella should taste like at Potenza Centrale.

HOMEMADE RAGU

Our homemade ragu is made using red cherry tomatoes from Southern Italy. Our ragu is slow-cooked for four hours. We sell our sauce by the jar and invite the public to bring their own jars for takeout.

YELLOW TOMATOES

Our pepperoni and sausage pizza is made using yellow plum tomatoes from Southern Italy. These tomatoes are sweeter than red tomatoes, which contrast well with the salty flavors of our pepperoni and sausage pizzas.
