So Nola.com just wrapped up its look at the “top” local pizzerias in New Orleans but alas, Pizza Nola was overlooked. It’s ok- we know we’re the best. Here’s why:
1. Whatever we can make in-house, we make in-house.
Our New York-style hand-tossed thin-crust features yummy dough made in-house using our special recipe. Plus, we make our own sauce, salad dressings, sandwich bread, croutons, pasta salad, and pretty much anything else we can make in-house.
2. We make our own Gelato and Sorbetto.
We have over 12 flavors of artisan Italian Ice Cream and in-season dairy-free sorbetto which we make in-house. No other pizzeria makes its own ice cream. Plus, it’s available for delivery by the pint.
3. Our staff is loyal, helpful, and friendly.
Lenny, our Kitchen Manager has been with us since before Day One. Jake and Darryl have been keeping you fed and comfortable in our dining room for four years. Chad has been delivering our pizzas with a smile for over four years. Ana has been cranking things out in our kitchen for over two years. Our staff knows your name, they’re glad to see you, and often they know what you want and how you want it prepared before you even place your order.
4. Because we party for Sharknadoes and other calamities.
Where else are you gonna’ go for a “Sharknado” viewing party? Every so often we’ll pack the parking lot with movies and special events and give you a reason to admit that you’re not afraid of a Ghost Shark. Speaking of which, our “Sharknado 3” party and costume contest is coming up Wednesday, July 22!
5. BawkNola breakfast is like no other.
Fridays through Sundays since 2012, we start off with a fresh full breakfast with pancakes and waffles made from scratch, yummy omelets, local favorites, in-season specials, freshly-squeezed orange juice, coffee roasted on the Gulf Coast, and a great way to start your day with rarely a wait for a table. Plus, you can even get breakfast delivered!
6. No order is too big.
We’ve catered for office parties, championship events, celebrity diets, holidays, birthday parties and much more. Our catering menu is designed to feed your group easily and affordably, and we can deliver throughout Metro New Orleans. We have special off-menu items available and can accommodate whatever your needs may be.
7. We carry the best King Cakes in the city.
The absolute best king cakes in the city are from Dong Phuong bakery in New Orleans East, and we have them during Carnival! They’re made with a light, flaky rich pastry dough with a scalloped outer edge and topped with a yummy cream cheese icing. Last year many people told us they’re the best they ever tasted and new folks kept coming in and coming back for them. We’re one of the few places you can get them (outside from making the trek to the East), and they’re available January 6 through Lundi Gras.
8. Because every day can be #NoPants Day.
We recognize that there are times that you just don’t want to put on pants, and we help accommodate this with our large delivery area. Lakeview, Lake Vista, Lakeshore, Old Metairie, UNO, and parts of Gentilly and Mid-City are all within our delivery range and for special orders we’ll go anywhere in the Metro. Plus, get a free copy of Gambit Weekly with each delivery!
9. Because we don’t mind if you track in mud.
Come as you are! Bring the family, bring the team, bring your co-workers. Whether you’re coming from church or coming from the golf course, you’ll feel comfortable in our dining room.
10. Have fun with Pizza Nola in the comfort of your own home.
The fun doesn’t stop in the dining room- we have over 2700 followers on Twitter- one of the largest followings of local independent restaurants. Plus, our NolaMedia Twitter list has 270 sources of New Orleans news and information to keep you apprised of what’s happening in the city.
Oh, here are two more reasons: Kids Eat Free on Monday nights, and we have $5.99 lunch specials each weekday!
