Napizza began its life in 2011 over a glass of wine and a ping pong game between three Italian raised friends. We love to bring locally sourced, nutritionally delicious food to the tables of our fans, friends and family. We are proud of our live culture, our local farmers, our gourmet salads, our unique Roman style 72 hour rise crispy pizza and our commitment to the planet.
It Starts With the Dough
Why is our dough unique?
At Napizza, we let nature take its course while our dough evolves for 72 hours. This long, low-temperature aging enables the yeast to work slowly with our high-protein flour that we source from a small family mill in Italy.
During these hours, the yeast transforms the complex sugars into simple sugars, making them easier to digest and metabolize. This process and our special flour allows us to use a minimal (80% less) amount of yeast.
Healthy & Local
The Freshest Ingredients
Whatever your reasons are for eating healthy: benefiting from more nutrients, enjoying better taste, preserving our ecosystem and agricultural diversity, avoiding hormones, antibiotics and drugs in animal products – we understand they are important to you. They are important to us too!
By providing the freshest, locally grown and healthy ingredients, we make sure you continue to follow what’s important to you even when you eat out.
Caring for Our Planet
To us, it means relying on and investing in our immediate community and geological placement. It means utilizing our resources in an efficient and renewable way that we find closest to us. It means dedicating ourselves to ensuring the health of our neighbors and loved ones by using the freshest, most naturally grown sources.
We believe that local produce and meat are more than mere vehicles for nutrients, but vital parts of the system that supports our environment and good people who live here.
All of our meats and poultry are hormone and antibiotic free! 80% of our raw ingredients come from within 400 miles of San Diego. For the few items that don’t grow year round, we source these items from responsible farmers and from the closest places possible.
