Fiamma Pizza Company announces the addition of a full bar to its restaurant. Fiamma’s newly renovated bar area features a "fresh, energetic setting, additional seating, and a large patio area."
Fiamma’s bar menu follows the theme of its dining menu, focusing on traditional cocktails with a twist, all made-from-scratch with fresh juices and ingredients. Guests can also now enjoy the adult beverage of their choice.
Located at 405 N. Market Street in North Chattanooga, Fiamma Pizza Company specializes in made-from-scratch, authentic Neapolitan and Sicilian Pizzas. Fiamma prepares its authentic Neapolitan-style pizza using imported ingredients, including Bufala (water buffalo) mozzarella cheese and “00” Italian soft wheat flour. Fiamma cooks each Neapolitan pizza in its wood fired oven imported from Italy, using local oak wood and ingredients. Fiamma also offers a Sicilian-style, thick crust pizza made from authentic and local ingredients. In addition to its pizza, Fiamma offers fresh salads and sandwiches, made from locally sourced meats and vegetables.
The story of Neapolitan pizza started long before it was in Chattanooga. One of the founders, Brion Voges, first discovered Neapolitan pizza while traveling. Neapolitan pizza can trace its roots back to the 1800s and uses very specific ingredients, dough, and cooking methods. This tradition led Mr. Voges to bring up the idea of starting a pizzeria with his father-in-law, Jim Richards, a veteran of the food industry.
After a few years of research and planning, Mr. Voges went to study with Roberto Caporuscio, owner of Kesté and president of the US chapter of theAssociation of Neapolitan Pizza Makers. Basically, pizza school. Here he learned the subtlety of this style of pizza. Keeping as much air in the dough as possible to keep its light quality, cooking the pizza at the correct temperature to gain the charring on the dough. The passion was solidified.
Mr. Voges and Mr. Richards then set out to build Fiamma pizza company. Alongside its Neapolitan pizzas, Fiamma serves Sicilian pies, the grandfather of Chicago and Detroit deep dish pizzas, as well as fresh salads and sandwiches.
