The Big Difference at Blocks Pizza Deli

Many can claim to have the best pizza, and truly it’s all in the tastebuds of the beholder. However few can claim to have unbleached and unbromated flour, which is good to know since bleach and bromated flour have been linked to serious illnesses.

The difference at Blocks Pizza is the use of “mother dough” and in a way this dough has a life of its own, because it is leavened naturally for 48 to 72 hours. Owner Eugene Vittoni works the dough every few days, with flour and water to keep it fresh. Due to the leavening process time, you don’t have that bloated feeling and it’s easily digestible; in addition they support local farms so ingredients are all fresh. In fact they pride themselves on having no freezer or adding preservatives to their food.

We tried the pizza and it was just as advertised, it tasted fresh and no bloating or stuffy feeling afterwards.

At Blocks Pizza, slices are sold in blocks or rectangles which are then divided into 4 equal parts. Prices range from $3.00 to $5.00 per block, depending on the toppings. Other notable differences include their infused garlic, rosemary, jalapeño or plain olive oils; which they offer instead of your typical shredded parmesan, spices of oregano or chile.

We did not get a chance to try their calzones or their pizza pockets, but they have been trending on social media and certain they are worth a try.
