Grimaldi’s history of coal-fired brick oven pizza cooking can be traced to the first pizzeria in America back in 1905. Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria delivers a unique flavor and consistency that is just not possible from wood or gas ovens. Weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day (cleanest burning fuel available and environmentally tested), the oven heats up to 1,200 degrees. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi’s famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza, year after year.
Coal-fired brick oven cooking gives pizza a unique smoky flavor and a crisp crust that is just not possible with gas, convection, or wood oven. Knowing coal-fired brick oven cooking is a dying art, Grimaldi’s want to ensure that future generations will be able to experience this distinctive and truly authentic pizza.
At Grimaldi’s every pizza is a piece of art, personally handcrafted just for you. The combination of fresh homemade dough, fresh mozzarella cheese, and freshly crushed tomato, cooked in our coal brick-oven, is what makes Grimaldi’s Pizza so unique and delicious. No wonder they are ranked New York City’s #1 Pizza
Grimaldi’s pizzeria has shown tremendous growth in 2015 and has promised to continue their expansion plans throughout 2016.

It has been said that the secret to true New York-style pizza is the water. Grimaldi’s believes that too, going to great lengths to keep the integrity of the water used in the Brooklyn pizzeria by hiring a chemist to analyze and recreate the mineral content and exact composition of the water to ensure the dough tastes the same in Arizona.
