We at Pizzaiolo believe that the simple act of feeding people is at the core of what it is to be human. We focus on the ritual of taking life from the world around us and presenting it to you to sustain your own life. We believe that taking part in this ritual is vital and deserving of the utmost repsect to the plants and animals we choose to source and to you, our friends, family and customers. We also believe that this ritual is one that all Americans took part in until about seventy five years ago. There is nothing fancy about it, in fact its pretty much how we have all been eating for hundreds of years. In accordance with these simple ideas we have come up with a few basic rules we try to follow. Whenever we can, about 98% of the time, we buy only locally grown, organic, seasonal meat and produce. We buy from small farmers we know and love, people we eat with, drink with, and share our lives with. We buy whole animals from ranchers we know and trust: We buy organic flour, milled in Oakland by people who bring their children to Pizzaiolo for dinner. We change the menu every day to reflect the offerings of these remarkable local food purveyors in their freshest most beautiful form.
