La Calavera Pizza is a small family-owned Pizza joint where everything is baked on premises with mostly organic ingredients. The flours for the white and wheat sourdough crusts are organic and the fresh toppings are locally grown and sourced. The starter used for their fermenting process is created from organic apple skins, hence their sourdough crusts have put them on the map. All of the meat toppings are local and clean, void of artificial anything, and made from pasture-raised animals fed a clean diet. A clean gluten-free crust, as well as house-made vegan cheeses, are offered.
Three varieties of pizza crusts are offered which include white sourdough, local organic wheat sourdough, and gluten-free. The pizzas are 16″ in size and all come with tomato sauce and basil. Ladrillos, an affectionately named square pizza is also on the menu. Dairy and vegan cheeses are offered including their homemade cashew & sunflower seed cheese sauce as well as vegan hemp parmesan. Breadsticks, salads, sweet desserts along with kombucha and a few sodas round out the menu.
What I Ordered
We sampled the plain Organic Long Fermented Sourdough bread and so many of their amazing bakery creations at the former La Calavera Bakery before transitioning to La Calavera Pizza. Because of these crazy Covid times, we haven’t yet made it to the new pizza joint but rest assured, the ingredient quality is top-notch and if the taste is anything like their former bakery creations, I’m looking forward to every bite.
La Calavera Pizza is currently offering walk-in and online ordering for pick-up.
La Calavera Pizza is committed to using the cleanest local ingredients they can find. The dough is made the old-fashioned way and sourdough is the healthiest choice for a flour-based pizza crust. Clean vegan, carnivore, locavore, and gluten-free Pizzas with a Mexican flair are what sets La Calavera apart from the rest.
