Carini's adds Neopolitan-style pizzas

Since opening in 1996, Carini’s La Conca d’Oro has offered authentic Sicilian dishes. Soon, it will offer Neopolitan-style pizzas, too.

Gregg Carini, whose parents Peter and Jan Carini own the restaurant, serves as the chef along with his father.

The restaurant's new pizza oven – an Acunto Mario from Naples, Italy – heats to 900 degrees and creates what Carini describes as a "lighter pizza" that is traditionally not cut, but rather eaten with a knife and fork or by picking it up.

The new pizza offering will be available in mid-January following the building of a new kitchen.

"A few places are serving this kind of pizza," says Carini. "Not many, but it’s getting more popular."

Stay tuned to for a full report in early 2015.
