Black Seed Bagels, one of the most well-known bagel shops in New York City, has announced that it is venturing into the world of pizza with its latest offerings.
In a collaboration with chef Bobby Hellen (formerly of GG’s Italian restaurant in NYC) that launched on February 11 at Black Seed’s East Village location, the shop is offering five different Sicilian-style pan pizzas: cheese, tomato, and white, and signature pizzas Green Pie and Bob’s Pie.
Black Seed Pizza’s dough is fermented for 36 hours and made from certified organic, stone ground flour from Wild Hive Farm in the Hudson Valley, non-GMO all-purpose flour from King Arthur Flour in Vermont and a 100-year old sourdough starter. The sauce is made using certified organic Bianco DiNapoli San Marzano-style tomatoes from California.
All of the pizzas are baked in Sicilian-style pans and come in two sizes: square (12” x 12”, which feeds two to three people) and round (9” diameter, which feeds one person).
