“We’ll have 23 toppings and 23 beers,” said owner Justin Price. “We’ll have eight taps, and six of those will be Oklahoma beers. We want to do as much local as possible.”
In addition to local brews from Anthem, Coop Ale Works, Marshall and Mustang, Pizza 23 will have Angry Orchards Hard Cider on tap for customers who prefer gluten-free. The restaurant will also carry a few wines.
The salad dressings and most of the sauces will be made in-house.
“We cut our vegetables daily; we grate our own cheese; we make our own dough,” Price said. “We want to focus on fresh ingredients, so we make everything from scratch and we don’t make anything until a ticket is printed.”
The restaurant will offer seating inside (at the bar as well as at tables) and outside on a large patio.
The menu will include vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options as well as traditional pizza pie.
N.W. 23rd between Broadway and Western avenues has seen significant renovations in the past few years. Price said he chose the location because he expects the revitalization to continue, and because there is no pizzeria currently on that section of 23rd.
