The History of the Black Garlic Pizza

The Black Garlic was one of the first signature pizzas we created at Urban Pie. Frankly… It will never come off of our menu. It is a clear representation of who we are and what we do. That is mixing classics with modern. By this, we mean the classic bianca (meaning white) pizza in Italy is simply fresh mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, basil, sliced garlic, olive oil, and sea salt.

Our take is by replacing the regular sliced garlic for the funky 90-day aged black garlic. Black garlic is steamed and fermented at 140 degrees for 90 days. Its characteristics are that of truffle, balsamic, tamarind and of course sweet roasted garlic. The pizza is so simple yet mysterious and complex. Fun fact – originally this pizza was called “Cheeses Christ”.

We hope you enjoy!
