pizza at Story Deli

We take pizza very seriously in our family and almost always prefer our pizza the way you’d find it in a restaurant in Naples:  good, Italian, wood oven-fired pizza with the freshest of ingredients and a nice, fluffy-ish crust from slow-fermented Italian dough.

I say almost always because there is an exception, and it’s the pizza from Story Deli. This pizza is made from 100% organic ingredients and in a sense redefines the very definition of pizza.  The owner (who is incredibly kind and warm, inviting you into is restaurant with the smile of an old friend) is so committed to being 100% organic that he doesn’t even put yeast in his pizza dough, hence the flat, crispy crust. It is beyond delicious.

The restaurant itself is basic, almost like an artist’s studio or loft space: there are wooden communal tables, high ceilings, white walls, a simple, open kitchen, and big bags of organic flour scattered around the room. The menu is hand-written on the back of cardboard, wine is served in simple water glasses, and there is nothing fancy about it. Just delicious food and a wonderfully kind staff. Perfect.

p.s. They are so lovely with children — the last time I came in, he asked my eldest to write down everyone’s order and then to do the math at the end of our meal to tally up the bill. There’s also a wooden train track in a box that he’ll bring out for younger children and they’re welcome to play on the floor by your table. So sweet!

I love the rustic look of story Deli.
Despite being slightly different, the pizzas are one of my favourite and much healthier than usual pizzas.
