Best Pizza in Minneapolis

influences from the past

Making Pizza History

Built back in 1883, the Day Block building was once owned by Leonard Day, a local flour milling and lumber industry entrepreneur. Fast forward a few years – a hundred or so –  and you will find Day Block Brewing Company. This brewpub now sits at the former cornerstone of some of the most influential flour mills. It was only fitting that Minneapolis’s best pizza emerged.

What makes our pizza the best in minneapolis?

Ingredients Matter

We seek out producers that can meet our standards: organic, sustainable manner, raised with care & respect. Each individual flavor is taken into consideration, whether it’s cooked or simply added on top. Bringing in flavors that can be versatile on many dishes is our goal.  Luckily in Minnesota, it’s fairly easy to find local, organically or equivalent produced ingredients that follow our Triple Green Strategy.

It starts with the dough

The secret to the best pizza in Minneapolis starts with the dough. We use a combination of ambient and cold fermentation techniques in each ball of dough. Our ingredients are simple: flour, water, salt & yeast – that’s it. A top-secret blend of flours gives our dough the “chew and pull” every pizza aficionado looks for with a bit more crispiness than Neapolitan style pizzas but lighter than most New York style. – will continue to invest in good times with us! We appreciate your business.

 

Hand-Stretched to perfection

There’s a visible difference between rolled and hand-stretched. Airy, crisp and full of holes – that’s how you know it’s been stretched by hand to perfection. Those blistering and variations in color are a true testament to how we do pizza.

Topped off with flavor

Most pizzerias use classic Italian flavors on their pizzas. We also use classic flavors but draw inspiration from all the myriad of food cultures represented in Minnesota. What sets us apart are the Latin American, Vietnamese, Scandinavian, North African, Eastern European, Japanese, American and many other influences that guide our pizza making direction every day. Many of our pizza inspirations come from a great meal eaten at one of the many restaurants in our community.

“Pairing good beer with good pizza isn’t a profound concept, but few brewpubs do it better than Day Block Brewing in Minneapolis. …Day Block uses only local, organic ingredients and make all of their dough, bread, and pizza sauce from scratch to create a plethora of unusual Italian pies. ” – craftbeer.com

The Spiciest Pizza I have ever tried

“I went there and ordered a kolsch then the pizza Leviathan caught my eye.
It is very spicy, but the association of different spice makes this pizza actually taste good (almost addictive)
You will drink a lot of beer to finish your pizza, but yeah this is why you are here for. (and beer is reasonably priced)..
It is a nice place, clean, not too noisy (Sunday afternoon) and friendly service (was at the bar).”
Yves Alexandre, TripAdvisor

HUNT FOR THE BEST (AND WEIRDEST) PIZZAS IN TOWN

“I’ve been on a hunt for the best (and weirdest) pizzas in town. Found some great stuff in the last couple months! I wanted to hit this place up last night to try the “Banh Mizza,” and it was a huge score. The bartender was knowledgeable, friendly and honest (which I love), made me a great martini while I waited, and chatted with me about the Super Bowl chaos. The atmosphere was welcoming and nice. The place wasn’t super packed. Parking was easy – lots of open meters. The Banh Mizza (as well as the Reuben pizza) was so freaking good. The Banh Mizza was pretty staggering. Service was also pretty quick, especially for pizzas which can take awhile at most places.”
