An exploration of Al Forno’s Grilled Pizza Margarita


It’s Pizza Week at, a website that reports on all things newsworthy (and nomworthy) in the culinary world. As a part of their series “Eater Elements,” they published an exploration and deconstruction of the famous Grilled Pizza Margarita at Providence’s own Al Forno restaurant.

Al Forno, which even made it onto Eater’s list of 38 Essential Pizzerias Across America, has been dubbed as “the birthplace of grilled pizza” since its opening 30 years ago. Chefs/owners George German and Johanne Killeen mastered the art of cooking a pizza on the grill “as hot and as fast as you can” and using only the freshest ingredients in order to produce the most delicious final product. If any of you have had the privilege of venturing off the Hill to this cozy Italian spot, you can vouch for the fact that these pizzas are magic.

Check out the rest of Eater’s article for insight into the ingredients, assembly, and love that goes into making Al Forno’s signature Grilled Pizza Margarita. Are you drooling yet?
