Review of Naked Pizza, South Beach

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

During my walking tour in South Beach, one day appeared a green neon sign at a street corner that read "Naked ...." neighboring a pub to the left and across the street of another pub. No it's not the beginning of a Red light district for leprechauns. But as I continued walking I could read the entire signage "Naked Pizza".  Now that caught my attention.

So what makes this pizza "naked"? As some "at home" chefs and foodies may guess, the concept here is to strip down to what's natural and make pizza with the purest ingredients.

The dough is made from a blend of 10 whole grains and seeds with the addition of probiotics. Pies are topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella with no preservatives, sugar or trans fat. A healthy pizza? Could it be? It's South Beach--perhaps the largest concentration of gyms, yoga centers, smoothie shops, fresh and organic supermarket stores, and buff bodies. A healthy pizza joint? I'm surprised it did not open sooner!

The health aspect is not enough.  The manager knows a thing or two about creating a pie that's good for you and flavorful. As the former international consultant for Domino's Pizza, Jurgens Richter introduces a pizza with black beans, jalapeno and Cheddar with a side of pico de gallo (zesty ground beef).  Not to be outdone by the Ragin' Cajun with sausage, chicken and peppers. 

Customers can order at the counter and watch their pizza being made. It emerges bubbling from the gas conveyor oven.  Eat standing at the counter or get takeout. Choose your crust from original (medium thick), skinny (crisp) or gluten-free made from rice flour.  Sizes are 10, 12 and 14 inches and start at $4.99 for a naked 10-inch pizza with each addition ranging from $1.49-$1.89.

So where is this nudist pie place? This bare bones pizza joint (in terms of decor, most people order take out), is located at 1260 Washington Avenue, literally across the street from the historic Art Deco post office building.
