New Brooklyn Pizzeria Uses Custom-Made Electric Oven

"" reports, “Even without Motorino, Brooklyn pizza is so hot right now—just ask the Times. So combine that trend with the growing number of quirky pizza ovens out there and you’ve got yourself a sure-fire way to grab a hungry Brooklynite’s attention. Enter Wild Rise, a new part-time pizza joint operating out of the back of the 68 Jay Street bar in DUMBO.”

“Available Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays Wild Rise offers authentic Neapolitan pizza baked at 900 degrees in a custom-made electric oven about the size of two stacked tires. Beyond the fancy oven, the guys behind the Rise are very, very proud of their ingredients. Specifically—since Neapolitan pizza is all about the crust—the wild yeast they use in their dough, which they describe as being ‘like eating wild-caught sushi versus factory-farmed salmon. The difference in taste is profound.'”
