Our Pizzeria has been in Hampstead, North Carolina since 2010. In 2018 we changed the name to Nunzio’s – the owners, recipes and commitment to quality are the same, only the name has changed.
If you come to Nunzio’s, you have to try our pizza. We offer a wide selection of pizzas, ranging from traditional Italian flavors to new favorites – and they’re always customizable.
Here’s what you can expect from Nunzio’s Pizza:
Our thin and crispy Neapolitan-style is THE original pizza.Yeah, the one that was invented more than 300 years ago. We’ve got all the classics made the way you like them. Or, try our thick Sicilian-style pie, focaccia baked in a pan and cut into squares. And we can’t forget our Grandma pies, also baked in a pan, but the crust is denser and crispier than a traditional Sicilian pie.
At our place, you will always enjoy your favorite pizzas handmade daily and cooked fresh to order. Do you prefer light sauce, heavy on the cheese, extra meat, or hold the pepperoni? You can have it how you want it at Nunzio’s.
This is the best place to get pizza with dough that’s made daily and rolled by hand. Our recipe was perfected when our family spent 40 years in Brooklyn.
The defining quality of the Brooklyn-style pizza, also known as New York pizza or Neopolitan-style pizza, is the crust. When baked, our dough makes a crispy, airy crust that is still soft; offering the perfect balance for the sauce and toppings.
If you’re from the East Coast or just a fan of thin crust pizza, we’ll hope you’ll come to Nunzio’s and enjoy our traditional pie. We love to hear our customers say that the pizza is just like what they remember from Brooklyn.
It wouldn’t be pizza without the ooey-gooey goodness of cheese. There is no other ingredient that perfectly complements our homemade dough and pizza sauce like fresh, handcrafted mozzarella.
A true Brooklyn-style pizza has authentic flavors from Italy, and to us, that means choosing whole milk cheese. When your pie arrives at your table, it’s easy to spot the difference between a Nunzio’s pizza and all those other guys. Our sliced mozzarella melts down and spreads across the pizza, creating a blanket that gives your palate a unique experience.
We pride ourselves in fresh cheeses for all of our dishes. Our mozzarella is used in salads and pies, such as our Grandma Sicilian pie and, of course, our famous Margherita pie.
Our tomato sauce is made fresh every day at our location. People often want to know the secret behind our sauce and how it tastes so natural and fresh. But, there’s no secret ingredient. We simply choose the finest plum tomatoes and other fresh produce to achieve the best and most authentic taste.
We believe you can’t go wrong with keeping it simple, and you can never put enough care and love into your cooking. That’s why all of our sauces are homemade, including Alfredo, pesto, vodka, and tomato sauces. Step into our kitchen and you’ll always be greeted with the old-world smells coming from a simmering sauce made with only the best ingredients.
Our Focaccia Bread
Focaccia bread originated in the Mediterranean, but it is loved all over the world. It’s traditionally served alongside a full Italian meal, and we’ve enjoyed it at family dinners for years.
This flatbread is brushed with olive oil and topped with spices and herbs, like rosemary. It’s very versatile and can be enjoyed in many ways.
We love including this comfort food in our dishes. We make it in our pizzeria daily, and it is a favorite of all of our customers. The focaccia sandwich is a hit, with our artisanal mozzarella, sautéed spinach, roasted red peppers, fresh basil, and grilled chicken all on homemade bread.
