Charlotte Pizzeria Named One of America’s Best – WSOC TV

CHARLOTTE — A Charlotte pizzeria has been named one of the best pizzerias in the United States, according to the New York Times.

Bird Pizzeria, in Optimist Park at 510 E. 15th Street, landed in second place on the list.

The restaurant specializes in American artisan pizza – a boom fueled by small Neapolitan pies baked in a wood-fired oven.

According to the New York Times, Kerrel Thompson is among the pizza makers who responded to the resulting demand for better quality by trying to perfect a different type of pizza.

Thompson said Bird Pizzeria is reminiscent of what he grew up eating in Cleveland. He and his wife Nkem operate the store.

The couple told the New York Times that the pizzas are shareable size, with golden, caramelized crusts and available with seasonal toppings like dandelion pesto and local mushrooms.

They said since opening in December 2021, the store has grown from a pop-up establishment to a takeout business and then to a table service restaurant.
