Brava Pizzeria della Strada, Part Two

Hi Again,

As we continue our visit with David Bravdica and his outdoor Brava Pizzeria della Strada, in Denver, Colorado, he takes us a little deeper into his process. In this segment we look at some of the ingredients, most of them locally grown and sourced (including his flour), that he preps and keeps chilled in his refrigerated rig. As he mentioned in the opening segment, David typically bakes about 100 pizzas during the lunch rush, so his mobile Fire Within oven gets quite a workout.  Also, take a look at that beautiful DiNapoli Tomatoes Pizza sauce — we’ll be visiting with Rob Dinapoli in a future segment that we filmed at the Forno Bravo Expo last fall, to find out what makes his tomatoes so special.

In the next segment, which we’ll run in a couple of weeks, we’ll watch David’s technique as he makes us some of his favorite pizzas, include his signature Margherita. In the meantime, enjoy this foretaste, and don’t forget to drop in on David when you’re in Denver — just look for the clock tower on the 16th St. Mall.



Hello, When is the episode featuring UPN and Anthony Mangieri coming?!

    Peter Reinhart

    Good question. We’re getting close to beginning a whole new season of episodes filmed last year, including a number of them with Anthony. But we haven’t decided on the order or dates yet. When we do, I’ll post them. However, it may be a few months before we get to the Una Pizza Napoletana webisodes.
