Experimental pizza joint Williamsburg Pizza has added a fourth store to its growing empire, at 310 Bowery Blvd. The owner and chef is Nino Coniglio, the winner of 2016’s Pizza Maker of the Year Champion award.
The pizzeria’s other locations in Williamsburg, the Lower East Side, and at the Barclay’s Center have become synonymous with a broad menu offering a huge selection of wild and crazy toppings. Some possibilities are apple, bacon, and wild mushrooms, but at the new location on the Bowery the menu, at least for now, will be limited to just one kind of pie.
On offer on the Bowery will be either a large or small version of “grandma pie” which comes with aged parmesan cheese and black lava salt. Ashwin Deshmukh, Coniglio’s partner, says that, at least for now, “We want to do one product, and do it really well.”
Folks on the Bowery will most likely not have to wait too long for the menu to grow. Coniglio has already brought out a few new experimental pies since opening: such as “Not Detroit Style” pizza pie which has collapsing dough. Since the new location will not be dealing with wholesale selling customers can expect to see lots more secret menu offerings when the feeling strikes Coniglio.
The new branch is open for lunch and dinner, with delivery to be added at some future date.
