Owner and founder, Vincenzo Barone created Bricco because he wanted to change people’s perception of pizza. “Pizza is a lost art , it is not cheese and sauce. There is passion and a skillful process that goes into a Bricco pizza. We use only the freshest, highest quality ingredients and there is an enormous amount of effort that goes into each pizza that is made.”
Why Coal Fired Pizza?
When Italian immigrants came to the United States, they were unable to recreate their classic wood fired pizza because wood was far too expensive. The only way to get the intense heat source that they needed to create the perfect crust was to use coal, changing how we’d think about pizza forever. At Bricco, we use domestically produced Anthracite Coal which burns cleaner than wood, electricity and oil. It is virtually free of smoke and particulate emissions. Today, anthracite is extracted almost exclusively from once abandoned mines and a portion of the price goes to a federal fund used to reclaim the areas in order to plant grass and trees, attracting wildlife back to the area.
Our Oven & Dough
Our custom made oven is one of the most expensive pizza ovens in the world. It requires a 2 hour pre-lighting process and hourly monitoring of the intense heat, in order to provide you with the best pizza imaginable!
Our unique dough is aged, which is essential to achieving our deliciously thin and crispy crust. Although we do our absolute best to accommodate every order, our inventory can become depleted. Using dough that is too young, would lower the quality of our pizza, and that’s just not an option for us.
