Conversation: Anthony Berghela, Romo’s Pizza Glenmont, NY


Our latest strategy is a blend of each dine in and takeout beneath 1 roof. Our takeout is extremely related to most small-town mother and pop pizzerias giving a variety of items from subs, salads and your typical fryer meals goods, even though our dine in is a minimal far more upscale then your regular pizzeria. We supply many types of pizzas on our menu together with Italian dinners, salads and appetizers that are a bigger good quality from your standard takeout menu. And most objects are produced in residence.

Pizza Style:

We are at this time providing a range of styles of pizzas that you historically wouldn’t see in your typical mom and pop pizzerias. Detroit, Chicago Deep Dish, Cracker Slim, Grandma style and even Roman Fashion from time to time. When featuring distinct variations of pizza, I’ve tried out to remain as legitimate as attainable to every single specific design of pizza and make it as authentic as probable. In most conditions, the substances that go in every single model are the exact same, but the ingredient percentages and fermentations may possibly be unique. If a model calls for an component that isn’t ordinarily made use of, we use it anyway to stay as reliable as doable. We would alternatively go the additional mile so the shopper can see and flavor the distinction of just about every pizza rather than just contacting it a distinctive title but employing the identical components as any other pizza.

Inform us about your expansion prepare? When and how that will it just take location?

We’ve been doing work on an enlargement now for just about two yrs. Mainly because of the pandemic it established us back again with our timing, but we have reopened the discussions with hopes to be functioning in a much larger house by early fall. This new locale permits for a greater bar and dining place, alongside with a bash room that can be utilised for various occasions. Not only that, it permits us the kitchen area place desired to supply the variety of options we do now so that they can be an day to day menu merchandise.

How do you deal with top quality and functions of giving a number of models of pizza?

Since we try to keep as legitimate as doable to a unique fashion of pizzas, these are usually only a once-a-week choice right now. We try to give them previously in the 7 days since we know how occupied our weekends can be. Every design we do might involve one thing diverse than the future a single. Oven temperature is big when giving different model. Some may call for a increased temperature whilst many others will need lessen for for a longer time bake periods. It’s simpler for us proper now to manage people factors on slower evenings where we never require all of our ovens and we can set one to a distinct temperature. Having plenty of oven space performs a major function in getting able to give distinctive types of pizza and do them authentic to the way they are intended to be. The new place will let us to do these unique types each day by acquiring numerous ovens we can established at different temperatures and acquiring a set up that is consistent and not constantly altering based mostly off the selection we are accomplishing that working day.
