Coal Fired Pizza Ovens

There is a relatively new, opened within the last several years, restaurant in Saint Clair PA (Schuylkill County) that has a coal fired oven used for pizza, bread and I believe a number of their entrees. Good stuff if a bit pricey. A lot of interesting old mine and mining related pictures in the restaurant. They use Reading Coal, at least that is what I have seen there.

Now you see my friends concern.

I doubt it'll affect him much. He said the food was expensive and "just OK".

And for HIM to say the food is expensive is saying something!

There's a place in southern CT that my buddy has been raving about. Says it's the best pizza on the planet, bar none. I think in Bridgeport or somewhere around there. Too far for me just to eat a pizza!

well, there's very little in most american coal that would cause any harm, not at the levels that would be obtained by contact with ash, the coal itself, or the flue gasses; there's also no extreme arsenic or fluoride levels seen in many asian and chinese coals. Because anthracite has very little hydrocarbon content there will be few carcinogenic heavy aromatics present in the fuel or the exhaust gasses, probably on par with a gas or propane fired grill. Bear in mind that most "charcoal" briquettes for grilling are predominantly anthracite or at least they have a significant amount of either anthracite or coke in the product. Although there are some small amounts of toxic elements and minerals in coal, flue gasses, and ash, it's the dose that makes the poison, and your pizza will hardly be touched by these things; be more concerned about the contents of the sausage or pepperoni that is on it.

Coal, when eaten in moderate amounts, as part of a well balanced diet, will cause no harm at all. :P

This thread was started in 2006 and not one mention of what is argueably considered the Best Pizza in the US located in little Italy (Wooster Street) in New Haven Connecticut....Pepe's Nepolitoano Pizza. The fact they use Coal fired Ovens as a marketing point is not lost on many people.
I've actullay asked the manager where and how they get all their coal......trucked in directly from PA and their proud of it.

They actually get their coal from the guys that used to own Clinton Grain and Hardware. The store closed a few years back but they kept the Blashack dealer franchise because they have all the Pizza joints in the area and make out like bandits. :)

As a former New Haven, CT resident, I heartily agree with Captcaper and Ed.A on the merits of Pepe's Pizza (http://www.pepespizzeria.com). These coal fired pies are fabulous. Don't miss stopping in when driving by. They also now have several other locations around CT and in Yonkers, NY. Check it out!

Why do you think I agreed to meet Vampiro in New Haven when I sold him my Mark I? :D

I have a hard time justifying driving an hour and a half JUST for pizza but as long as I was in the area......
