Cooking Pizza with Coal in Fashion Again

“A new pizza-cooking technique is catching fire in Providence, and even if you consider yourself a pizza connoisseur, you’ve probably never had pizza made like this,” according to the Rhode Show.

“This is a pizza restaurant, something new to the Providence scene where our focus is on coal fire pizza, a product that we’ve introduced to Rhode Island,” said David Bertolini, partner at Providence Coal Fired Pizza . “There’s no other coal fire pizza in Rhode Island as far as we know.”

The coals are unique and get the oven blazing.

“It burns at such a high temperature, which is 900 degrees,” added Bertolini. “Usually a lot of people are familiar with wood-burning stoves which burn, depending on the wood, between 400 and 500 degrees, so the temperature that you’re cooking at is pretty unique.”
