Some like a raised crust and others prefer thin crust. The raised crust gives a bread-like texture to the experience of the toppings and the thinner version let’s you focus more on the crust. While at La Befana Pizzeria our team has their favorites as well, we all work towards giving you – our customer – your favorite!
We use to tell our customers there is not right or wrong choice of crust but we quickly found ourselves in the middle of a “religious war” on pizza crust and so please don’t ask us to take sides anymore. It’s bad for business!
At La Befana we offer you two choices in crust – New York-style or the thinner Neapolitan-style crust. Both are made fresh every day.
New York Style Crust:
Our New York-style pizza is characterized by a puffy outer crust which tapers down to a thin crisp middle. The puffy edges are caused by air pockets created during the folding when making the dough. The crust is usually a darker brown and even charred-looking in some places.
Neapolitan Style Crust:
While American’s tend to look at the centerpiece of the pizza as toppings, the Neapolitan’s felt the crust should have the focus and the toppings were just embellishments. But we try and provide both thin-crust taste and lip-smacking good toppings. Our high-temperature ovens provide the quick-cooking necessary to achieve this style crust.
La Befana Pizzeria is fast becoming the people’s favorite pizza in Allston and Brighton, and as our reputation branches out towards Boston we invite you to try one of our gourmet pizzas and discover for yourself what all the fuss is about.
