The art and craftsmanship that goes into making the perfect pizza is a unique and refined art form. Scissors & Pie, a pizza shop on a mission to put some old-fashioned tradition and integrity back into the art of the pizza, is the newest venture for Mitch and Lisa Derosa of Mitchell John Salon, Robert “Pal” Contrada, Jonathan Levi of Jonathan Levi Architects, Chef Marco Storini and Tony Marino.
Scissors & Pie pizzas are roman cuts, which can be served tapas style, never pre-sliced, but always hand cut and priced by weight. Each square petzo (square piece of airy crust pizza) is hand cut with a pair of scissors. This unique pizza technique is used throughout Italy and is now making its way to Boston. Scissors & Pie patrons can survey the array of fresh pizzas lined up in trays. Then customers select the pizza of their choice and ask for a petzo, determining the size of the square they would like. Customers pick and choose as many little or big petzos as they want. Finally, the pizza is weighed and then fired up in the oven. This process is engaging and captures the feel of Italy, while the decor resembles the beautiful cafés found in Milan. Now open at 225 Newbury Street, come join Scissors & Pie as the “cut” into the culinary world.
