Experience Authentic Neopolitan Pizza at Menomale

If you’ve tried the Menomale Brookland location, you know we’re in for a real treat with their newly opened NoMa shop just around the corner. This local pizza chain serves up Neapolitan-style pies inspired by the Campania region of Italy, using traditional ingredients and preparation methods for the perfect pizza pie. Menomale is the passion project of husband and wife duo, Maria and Ettore Rusciano. Rusciano is a Naples, Italy native, bringing the cuisine of his homeland to D.C. Their dough is made with love taking two or three days to get the perfect conditioning to make that crispy, fluffy crust we all know and love.

They’re also serving up a new addition at this location, Roman-style pizza. These pies are rectangular in shape and cooked at a lower temperature than their Neopolitan counterpart. The traditional is topped with the best San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, and of course, a drizzle of olive oil. Simple, yet delicious. Try it!
