Wednesday, January 3, 2018

Luna Pizza Café has opened at 632 S. Pitt St. The restaurant, in a remodeled former Coca-Cola bottling plant, is next to Pitt Street Brewing Company.

The pizza features made-from-scratch dough, is topped with locally sourced ingredients and baked in an 800-degree brick oven.

“We’re trying to elevate pizza to a degree that people aren’t used to,” owner Richard Williams said. “The idea is for people to walk into the restaurant and say, ‘Wow, I can’t believe I’m in Greenville.’ We want a visit to Luna to be the best part of your day.”

To learn to make authentic pizza, Williams enrolled in the Bivero Pizza Academy in Florence, Italy, and spent weeks over the summer and again in December working in Pizzeria Zero Zero.

When it comes to the pizza, Williams says it’s all about the crust and the quality of the ingredients. “We’ll have hand-crafted Neapolitan pizza cooked in under 2 minutes at 800 degrees, fresh appetizers, some lovely desserts and a full bar. We want to use as many local products as we can in interesting ways, and we want to bring a fun and sophisticated dining experience to the people of eastern North Carolina,” he said.

Pizzas include Margherita with fresh basil ($12); Shiitake Mushroom and Sausage ($15); Mediterranean with anchovies, olives and capers ($16); Jalapeno and Bacon ($16); and Prosciutto and Arugula ($16). Customers also can build their own, starting with a base of tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella and adding ingredients of their choice.

For more information, call 751-0900 or visit Luna Pizza Café on Facebook or at http://lunapizza.co.

I call it “psychological thinking,” referring to the tendency among parents of the last 50 years or so to attribute bad behavior on the part of a child to so-called “issues” that are thought to be causing emotional tensions of one sort or another. That is, in fact, precisely…

Not all trees are created equal. While most trees that cover our landscapes provide us with aesthetic and ecological benefits, there are a few that probably do not belong here. Some trees can be invasive, some are insect and disease prone, and others may not grow well in our eastern North Carolina…
