Lord of the Pies Brings Detroit Pizza to Greenwich, CT

6-Time World Pizza Champion Bruno DiFabio Continues to
Celebrate Pizza Styles from Around the World and Across the Country
March 4, 2019, Greenwich, CT: Having studied pizza making from Italy to San Francisco, and upon consulting on his first pizzeria in Detroit, “Mootz”, in January, Lord of the Pies is an exciting new concept presented by 6-Time World Pizza Champion and Restaurateur Bruno DiFabio. The name “Lord of the Pies” is a nod to Bruno’s reputation within the pizza world and his knowledge of pizza science, dough, and the art of pizza making throughout the world.
Lord of the Pies features traditional New York style round pies that start with aged flour and a longer fermentation process, which gives the pizza a superior flavor profile. The crust is baked at 550 degrees in a gas-fired, flat top brick oven that is handcrafted in the USA. The final product has a light and crispy texture, while at the same time, has a substantial chew to it.
In addition, Lord of the Pies is excited to offer a Detroit style pizza, a triple fermented dough process, twice-baked, steel pan pizza with a caramelized Asiago cheese crust which is light, airy, and crispy. Only a limited amounted of these pies are prepared daily due to the lengthy process.
“It’s worth the time and effort, “says DiFabio of the method which includes starting with a biga ‘mother’ dough and a 3-day fermentation process, “Not only does this allow for an incredible flavor profile, but because we allow the enzymes in our dough to live long enough, they feed off the complex starches, which leaves the yeast to feed off of these simple sugars. That allows us to put less sugar in our dough, which makes it healthier and naturally lower in carbohydrates. The result is a crunchy, yet soft and supple pizza.”
Lord of the Pies uses whole milk mozzarella from Brownsville, Wisconsin, that has earned a five-star rating from the National Dairy Council and is harvested daily. It's the best, most flavorful cheese on the market. The tomato sauce is made from vine-ripened tomatoes that are grown in Modesto, California and picked, packaged, and sealed in a can within three hours, which guarantees high-quality, fresh sauce without any citric acid or preservatives. The same attention to quality ingredients and preparations is found throughout the menu, which includes Italian favorites, fresh salads, pasta dishes, hero sandwiches, and more.
Located at 1 Grigg Street on the corner of a bustling Greenwich Avenue, Lord of the Pies is a striking space replete with exposed brick walls, large farmhouse communal tables, and eclectic artwork of pop culture icons and images paying homage to everyone’s favorite food – pizza!
