Anatomy of a Freaky Pizza
We don’t just make pizza. We make edible art.
Our pizza artists are taught that the dough is a blank canvas for them to create a uniquely delicious pie for another awesome human being to appreciate and enjoy consuming.
Our goal is for you to leave not only with a heavenly wood-fired pie, but with a greater sense of joy, connectedness, nourishment, and excitement about living your life to the fullest.
Here’s a little more detail on how we do things at Freak Brothers Pizza…
~ Our Oven ~
We burn pecan wood in a mobile brick wood-fired oven built locally by one of our good friends here in Phoenix. It’ll reach up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit or more, which does some seriously delicious alchemy to our pizza.
Feel free to come around back and check out the fire! Just be mindful of our freaky awesome pizza artists churning out pies at a fast pace.
~ Our Ingredients ~
We carefully select just a handful of simple, fresh, inspiring ingredients to top our pizzas. We allow space for our high temperature wood-fired oven to work its magic of highlighting the rich flavors of each individual topping.
And we hate long, confusing menus. That’s why we only offer a handful of unique pizza flavors. We’re currently serving: Cheese, Pepperoni, Spinach Artichoke, Pesto Madness, and Sriracha Chicken. But feel free to customize yours just how you like it!
~ Our Dough ~
We make it ourselves. Fresh every time. Just the perfect mix of four simple ingredients: flour, water, yeast, and sea salt. That’s it.
We now use a 100% organic & non-GMO pizza flour from Central Milling, a forward-thinking Utah-based company that’s been innovating since 1867. We chose our flour for it’s superior taste, resilient gluten structure, and ability to cook properly in an oven that reaches over 900 degrees Fahrenheit.
For our gluten-free friends, we now offer delicious gluten-free crusts from Venice Baking Company! We’ve already gotten great feedback on the flavor of this crust. Note: we are NOT Celiac friendly as there’s a lot of flour in our shop and we cook them in the same oven as our other pies – even with the barrier we cook them on, we can’t guarantee there will be no cross-contamination, though we do our best to protect it
~ Our Cheese ~
We use Galbani shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese to melt the rest of our ingredients together into a flavor symphony. It’s one of the most well known and trusted cheese brands in Italy, and it perfectly melts the rest of our ingredients together into a flavor symphony.
For our vegan and dairy-free friends, we also offer Daiya cheese, a brand both owners have used and loved for years, and our customers go crazy for it too.
~ Our Sauce ~
We use a simple, high quality crushed tomato sauce from Sogno Toscano, an inspiring Italian food brand, with just a dash of sea salt added. The tomatoes used in our sauce are grown in what many consider the best tomato growing region in Italy, and they’re even VPN certified, which means it’s the kind of sauce you’ll find in the many high-end traditional Italian wood-fired pizzerias in Italy.
