Wood Fired Flavor at 1889 Pizza Napoletana

Wood Fired Flavor at 1889 Pizza Napoletana

The redevelopment of the Northwood Shopping Center, located at 47th St. & Mission Road, has introduced a few additional restaurants to southern KCK. Perched right on the county line, one of these is 1889 Pizza Napoletana. Owners Jason & Kelli Kolich are engaged in their business, and told us a little about the background of the restaurant.

 Neapolitan pizza is a little different than what you find at most others joints around town. Here they use traditional ingredients as they would in Naples, Italy, the home of pizza. The pizza is simple, yet flavorful, and made right before your eyes. Their menu has a few specialty versions to choose from or you can just build your own version from their wide assortment of toppings.

  Once assembled, the pies are cooked in one of their two copper clad, wood-fired ovens for an authentic taste. The niche that 1889 Pizza has carved out is being flexible to their customer’s needs. If you are in a rush they are more than willing to accommodate. For those more inclined to experience a slower-paced meal, this is also a choice.

  The dining area is set up to make customers feel comfortable. Seating options include an oversized table with crystal chandeliers for larger groups, as well as an assortment of four-seat tables that can be arranged to handle a wide variety of group sizes.

  On our visit we began with a Chopped Salad made up of romaine, mixed greens, and red cabbage. To this they add bacon, tomato, pasta, green onion, and Gorgonzola cheese. The entire mixture is tossed with a white balsamic, which helps to highlight the combination of flavors. It is a very refreshing blend.

  Their base pie is the Margherita, which includes their signature San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil. For our first visit we chose not to weigh it down with too many additions, but we had to have some pepperoni. The flavor was fantastic, and the cooking method adds that hint of smokiness to the meal. Our entire experience at 1889 Pizza Napoletana was a success, and we look forward to visiting again in the near future. We highly suggest you find a reason to swing by and savor some of their offerings, as well.

About the Author:

We are Jeff and Crystal, a Baby Boomer couple who love exploring this big blue marble we all call home. After spending the first portion of our lives together raising a family, the empty-nest syndrome finally caught up with us. This has given us the opportunity to spend more time traveling, and seeking out new destinations. We developed this travel blog with the goal of showing how we “Visit Like A Local”. Our itineraries are designed to get us off the interstates, and into the heart of the places we visit. We believe this will allow our readers to choose a cultural experience, and eventually head home with a real flavor of the places they visit. We hope you are enjoying our website and will consider sharing it with your friends. Please come back often, as we post new articles three times per week.
