What is Northwest Pizza


Signature Dough Made Fresh Daily

It all starts with our signature dough.  In the Northwest, we are blessed to have the cleanest and freshest tap water, and you can taste the difference in our dough.  We make our dough fresh daily.  It is hand-rolled & proofed for a minimum of 24 hrs.  We open our dough with a traditional hand-tossed method for topping.

Topped with Fresh Ingredients

We fire roast our meats & veggies every morning, filling our restaurants with a distinct aroma of quality and love.  We pride ourselves on responsibly sourcing the highest quality ingredients, including award-winning cheeses, the best sauces, the freshest vegetables and top-quality, humanely produced meats.  Creativity with ingredients in a key factor in defining Northwest Pizza.

Cooked on Stone in Front of an Open Flame

We bake our pizzas in Wood Stone open-flame stone ovens at a target temperature of 550 degrees Fahrenheit.  This is the optimal temperature for our signature dough to rise to perfection, providing the perfect foundation for the meal on top.

Baking is the Process of Moving Moisture

Our pizza is topped perfectly, allowing moisture to escape from the dough. The pizza is cooked to a 20%-30% char on bottom and 10%-20% char on top. Our Pizza Artisans are trained to foster and recognize “THE MOMENT” when the pizza is cooked to perfection, which may require techniques such as ‘doming’ the pie in the higher & hotter altitudes of the oven chamber just prior to being removed. Once the pizza is removed from the oven, it rests on a screen for approximately 30 seconds to allow excess moisture to escape from the top and bottom of the pizza before being placed onto a pan for slicing & serving.  This screening process is paramount in creating a crispy bottom layer, because nobody likes a soggy bottom.

The Presentation of our Pizza is Key

The pizza is adorned with any additional fresh toppings before being dressed table-side with freshly grated Grande Parmesan cheese.

Made for Northwest People by Northwest People

This is what truly makes our pizza Northwest Style. The people of the Northwest are as unique as the landscape of the region, full of beauty and character. Northwest people work hard for a living and appreciate quality. We know how to please the people of the Northwest because we are Northwest people ourselves.  This is pizza made for Northwest people by Northwest People.
