It’s 2017 – step outside your familiar comfort zone and try some new pizza options. Bella Via’s brick oven coal-fired pizza crust can be covered with any of dozens of gourmet pizza toppings, so experiment a little and find out what tickles your taste buds.

Start with the crust. Our crust is always made fresh, and the extremely high temperatures of our ovens ensures a crisp crunchy exterior and a chewy interior – just like New York pizza is supposed to have.

Our sauce is next – the San Marzano tomatoes we use are ripe and delicious, and that carries over into every yummy bite. Don’t care for red sauce? Our white sauce pizzas are also famed for their flavor.

Don’t forget the cheese. Mozzarella, ricotta, gorgonzola, fontina, parmesan, robiola, goat cheese and more await, so don’t be shy about asking for extra cheese. (Try our stuffed focaccia as well – it’s to die for.)

Veggies. Onions, red peppers, olives, and mushrooms are on the list, but don’t be afraid to try the broccoli, eggplant, and sundried tomatoes, too. Basil and oregano add to the flavor and make each bite pop.

Pile on meat choices – chicken, ham, prosciutto, bacon, pepperoni, and sausage all are on the list of protein choices that turn your pizza from a vegetarian affair into a paleo lover’s dream.

Go exotic when you branch out and start really going off the beaten path. Throw some pineapple on your pizza and shout down the haters – fruit is always a valid food choice. You can also get fancy with truffle oil, arugula, and bresaola.

Small pies feed a couple intent on a big dessert after, or one hungry individual. Large pizzas feed two with a hearty appetite, or provide the perfect appetizer choice for a foursome.

Don’t let 2017 go by without broadening your horizons. Try some innovative pizza topping combinations at Bella Via and find out what your palate has been missing all of these years. You just might discover that perfect combination that becomes your new favorite.

Don’t forget that Bella Via delivers pizza in LIC. Tell your friends to meet you at the restaurant if they pass through Queens, and introduce them to the best New York pizza in Long Island.
