Bella Via has some of the best pizza in New York – crafted fresh daily from their location in Long Island City. Whether you’re joining us for a meal at our family table or getting the good stuff delivered, there are few coal-fired brick oven pizzas simply must try.
- If you’re in the mood for a classic try out Margherita. This simple yet elegant pizza features only the plumpest and freshest San Marzano tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella. This traditional offering never disappoints even the most critical pizza lover.
- Moving on from simplicity to complexity, another pizza to try is our Quattro Stagioni. This “four seasons” pizza is divided into four equal quarters that each boast their own toppings: white pizza, ham, mushrooms and artichokes. Variety is the spice of life, and our Quattro Stagioni proves it.
- Next up is our namesake pizza, the brick oven baked beauty known as the Bella Via. This signature pizza starts with a simple white sauce, and then adds sausage, broccoli rabe, and fresh mozzarella. It is a combination that will make your taste buds sing.
- For the true cheese lover there is only one choice, the Quattro Formagi. This is a decadent cheese pizza which can be layered with either with white or red sauce before generous helpings of ricotta, gorgonzola, mozzarella and fontina are heaped on top for a chewy, dairy lover’s delight.
It’s not just our gourmet pizza toppings and scratch-made dough that are vital. A perfect pizza boasts a crust that is crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, and toppings that have not been overcooked. This takes temperatures of over 900 degrees for a truly perfect crust.
This is where our brick lined ovens enter the picture. Not only do the bricks reflect the heat inwards but they also intensify it. This increases the temperature and speeds the cooking process. The way the pizza rests directly on the oven floor allows the crust to cook with conductive heat for a perfectly browned bottom that is not burnt.
We believe that pizza crust should always be a crisp, light, chewy foundation for your toppings of choice. It should never be burnt, dry, or soggy. Whether you order the Quattro Stagioni or the Bella Via (or anything else for that matter) you will find a perfect crust topped by the best pizza toppings in town.
