What Makes Our Pies Special: Ingredients, Experience + Technique
Special pizza made specially for you
From the flour we choose to the oven we use, PSB pizza is a whole lot of special made specially for you. Here are a few of the things we love most about making it and eating it.
Carefully sourced ingredients
We want to give you the best pizza possible. And that starts with stellar ingredients. Here are a few craft ingredients you can expect in your next PSB pizza:
Giusto’s 00 high protein flour
Maldon sea salt
Cobram Estates olive oil (Woodland)
Molinari pepperoni (San Francisco)
Bianco Dinapoli tomatoes (Los Gatos)
Produce from nearby farms (like greens from Del Rio Botanicals)
Dough made the slow way
Hand-mixed and scratch-made, PSB’s dough is unique and delicious in its own right. 24-hour fermentation yields great texture and a nuanced, lightly sour flavor. We add agave to each batch for extra life and golden color.
On-site cooking and live fire
Our pizzas are made to order by a professional chef: hand-stretched, topped with wonderful ingredients and baked before your eyes. Thanks to the power and beauty of wood-fire cooking, PSB’s pies come out bubbly and crisp in just under two minutes.
Seasoned wood-burning oven
Olive the oven was built in 2015 by a local craftsman in Newcastle, California. Ben picked out the gold tile you see on the front.
It took several days and a dozen low-burning fires to season Olive’s cooking surface and walls. Now she cooks like an old pro. Olive can reach temperatures of up to 900 degrees, which means your pizza comes out bubbly and criss in no time at all.
Olive has traveled thousands of miles and has the bumps and bruises to prove it. We love her more each day!
