Beegs Wood Oven Pizza is a small, family business run by Liz and Gary Biegel (hence the name). We are hoping to share with our neighbors what started as a hobby, and quickly turned into a passion. After completing a course for Italian style Thin Crust Pizza and making many pies in our home kitchen for friends and family, we thought we had the perfect pizza. Then we purchased a backyard wood oven to cook our pizzas in and were blown away by the taste it added. And so began the idea for our little business.
Making our own dough with an Italian OO flour has always tasted better to us. What is OO flour? The number refers to the fineness of the milling. OO flour is made from top-quality, all-natural soft wheat flour that has been milled slowly and has an extremely fine texture that makes for a very soft and flavorful thin crust. On a personal note, there’s another reason we make our dough with Italian 00 flour – our family has stomach problems, and with our experimenting, we found this flour to be less of an irritant and easy to digest.
So this is what we are offering to our neighbors and friends:
– a wood burning oven
– dough made with 00 pizza flour, mixed with RO water and allowed to ferment and rest for 52-58 hours
– tomato sauce made in house using San Marzano tomatoes, kosher salt, garlic and olive oil
– high quality cured meats
– imported parmigiana and Asiago cheese
– virgin olive oil
– local tomatoes, vegetables and herbs (when available)
We so enjoy the making and eating of these foods, and hope that many locally will enjoy what we pass through the customer window.
