I would have to say that everything started when my Great Grandparents emigrated from Italy to New York City sometime in the late 1890's. They brought with them the seeds to make this all happen.
Personally, I started my professional food and beverage career when I was just 15 years old. Now after 36 years of experience and having built two other successful Pizzerias: I am proud to bring Hammer's New York City Pizza to Encinitas, CA.
The dough and sauce recipes have been a three generation, guarded family secret, and always made from scratch. Our dough is made in house and hand rolled to form the dough balls. All our Pizzas, Calzones and Strombolis are cooked in a traditional stone oven, not on a metal conveyor belt! The sauce is made with 100% tomatoes and spices are also made in house like our dough.
I am very serious about everything on the menu must be made in the traditional New York Italian style and only the best will do! Don't be fooled by so many others who really have no experience or proper background to do this.
I am really looking forward to meeting all of you who have waited so long for a Real New York Pie, and right here in Encinitas. So please come on in where you will be treated like family. You can enjoy great food, conversation, and leave with a smile.
