You won’t see chef Francesco Etzi beating, kneading or tossing his pizza dough. To preserve the natural chemical structure and flavor, Etzi allows the flour to ferment for two to five days before shaping it. Fresh ingredients and simple, inventive toppings complete the composition.

If I can make a single recommendation, it's to order the Arancini to start. Those crunchy, cheesy little balls are a must. 

On the whole, I cannot say enough good things about Pala. Their pizzas are delicious and hit that perfect mix of crispy and fluffy. Their brussels are cooked to that slightly burnt perfection. If you aren't trying to fully indulge, one side of the menu is Gluten Free and there are plenty of veggie options.
