pizza closeup grimaldi
Grimaldi’s is a pizzeria that persists with the 100-year long pizza making traditions, which includes usage of a coal brick oven, rather than a convection oven. The coal brick oven gives a smoky taste to the pizza, and the crisp crust gives diners the unique pizza experience they have never had anywhere else. Besides this, their fresh ingredients add to the overall unique taste that diners relish. They use clean coal from Pennsylvania, and the water is tested for its purity to make their signature dough for their distinctive pizzas.
