Alla Pala Pizza & Enoteca

Alla Pala Pizza & Enoteca

Pizza lovers, rejoice! From Rome with love, a new pizza-by-the-slice experience has arrived in New York City.

Now open at Eataly NYC Flatiron, Alla Pala Pizza & Enoteca offers authentic Roman-style pizza by the slice paired with regional Italian wines by the glass or bottle.

WHAT IS PIZZA ALLA PALA?

Pizza alla pala is a style of pizza made with a dense, naturally-rising dough that Roman pizzaioli – pizza makers – stretch lengthwise and top with high-quality ingredients. Unlike the wood-fired Neapolitan variety, the dough is baked in an electric oven and then slipped from the oven onto a wooden pala, or "paddle," topped with fresh ingredients as desired, and served. The resulting pizza boasts a thick crust with a crispy exterior that yields to a soft, airy interior with each perfect bite.

Created by our Global Head of Bakery, Fulvio Marino, our pizza alla pala dough is made of a perfect combination of three different flours: farina 00, buratto, and whole wheat. Each flour is 100% organic and Italian, hailing from Mulino Marino, Fulvio’s family-owned mill in Piemonte. Passionately devoted to grains and baking, the Marino family has dedicated their lives to producing and using stoneground flours following the tradition of their ancestors.

SO WHAT'S ON THE MENU?

From the classic varieties (think: Margherita and Capricciosa) to seasonal rotating pizze, you can enjoy nine different pizza options for lunch, each featuring fresh, high-quality ingredients. Then, starting at 5 p.m., you can order from among our pizza alla pala varieties, or try one of our specialty, made-to-order pizza gastronomica! Visit Alla Pala Pizza & Enoteca to get the full menu.

PIZZA GASTRONOMICA: A PIZZA ART FORM

What is pizza gastronomica? Put simply, pizza gastronomica is a work of art! Crafted from the creative genius of our pizzaioli chefs, our pizze gastronomiche are whole, specialty pizze topped with high-quality, seasonal ingredients. Each pizza is made with a unique, complementary dough: classic dough, enkir dough, or whole wheat dough. Similar to the traditional pizza alla pala, pizza gastronomica is baked in an electric oven, sliced, and then served on a pala, or "wooden paddle." Each slice and each bite boasts a perfectly balanced flavor, thanks to the meticulous care our pizzaioli put into making every inch of the pizza.

Yes, we take pizza seriously!
