Franco's NY Pizza

The Best Pizza in Murrells Inlet

way to make a classic NY-style pizza.
While we can’t give away the “secret sauce”, we can give you the basics of how we make the best pizza in Murrells Inlet.
We start by stretching the dough to the appropriate thickness so it cooks to the right consistency.  Too thick and the dough will be undercooked and the pizza will be spongy.  Too thin and the crust burns and the is not enough dough flavor.  It’s integral to get the right thickness for the border crust as well.
Are we creating unrealistic beauty standards?
The sauce
Believe it or not, there is great debate about whether or not you should spread the sauce with a ladle or spoon.  Ladle tracks are a thing and the spreading of the sauce incorrectly can lead to inconsistent taste from one slice (bite) to the next.
The Cheese
Again, here is another area where the devil is in the details.  Do you sprinkle or spread the cheese?  How fine should the cheese be shredded to create a stretchy layer that doesn’t gob and ooze?  The quality and freshness of the cheese is one of the most important parts of the pizza.
The Toppings
To make the best pizza, you need to have the best ingredients.  The toppings need to be fresh, store-cooked, and hand-cut.  Vegetables are fresh from the market to give each pizza a robust, authentic taste.  A classic NY pizza will never use mass-produced toppings.  Toppings need to be placed so you get the right flavor in each bite.
Cooking the Pizza
There are several different pizza ovens from steel to clay, to ceramic, fire, electric, open, and conveyor.  Each will produce a slightly different pizza.  Our ovens are traditional NY with special insulation to create the classic NY pizza taste.

Stop by and check out the “before” for yourself.
