Elizabeth, an experienced pizzaiola, built her first outdoor brick oven 8 years ago. Since then she has diligently practiced and refined her skills as a pizza maker. Her 1-acre garden is filled with only the freshest, organic vegetables that she shares with you in every bite!
Bella Sorella Pizza is owned by two sisters, Elizabeth Corrado Weizman and Gail Corrado Okafor. Gail has recently returned to Ohio after twelve years in California’s Bay Area. There, she trained to become a professional chef and comes to you with 8 years experience.
We asked them how they got started. “The business started because we built a pizza oven at our family farm and made pizzas every weekend with rave reviews. We knew we had to make this mobile in 2013 right when the Dayton food truck scene started to happen.” They added a 2nd mobile pizza oven and stay booked up most weekends.
Their best selling item is for sure the Big Fella, their pepperoni pizza and also The Queen, their margherita pizza. Also keep an eye out for the Greek-In-Law which is Feta, Greek olives, Feta, greek olives, red onion, roasted pepper and Spicy house made yogurt sauce or The Nana, fresh corn, pesto, slow roasted tomatoes, roasted garlic and summer squash.
The sisters want you to know they “are the true Farm to Pizza. We grow most of the toppings for our pizzas on our family farm including the pork for sausage. The dough has only 4 natural ingredients and freshly made. A large part of business now is private catering for weddings, graduations, and all kinds of special events.” They roll up with their van, oven, a full staff, stretch the dough, top the pizzas, and cook them right in front of your space and guests to serve hot, fresh pizza
Using only the freshest, Ohio grown and produced meats, cheeses and produce, Bella Sorella, offers you a unique culinary experience. Our hand-tossed pizzas are baked over an 800 degree wood-fired oven, offering you a mouth-watering pizza, full of fire, scents, and flavor! The menu for public events is typically a meat pizza, a 4 cheese, a vegetarian option and a seasonal pizza depending on what’s fresh and in abundance in the garden.
