Barry Kalt, a native New Yorker, has brought New York pizza to Baton Rouge in the form of Mama Della’s N.Y. City Pizzeria, a pizza parlor with the charm and food from the big city.
Kalt said all the recipes are made in-house and are family recipes, most from his mother Adele, who became known as Mama Della. When I was in the shop, Kalt admitted to me that he hadn’t told his family about his new business venture, and he was planning on surprising them by sending the menus and news clippings from various local publications to share the news.
Pretty cool, huh?
