When it opens this month in the Left Bank development off West Seventh Street, MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company will elevate the fast-casual pizza chain.
For starters, to be called authentic Neapolitan pizza, ingredient requirements are strict: finely ground “00” flour, Italian tomatoes, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, fresh mozzarella and aged Parmigiano-Reggiano are among the essentials, along with an oven that can reach upwards of 1,000 degrees to fire the pies in about 60 to 90 seconds.
Then there are the specialty pizzas like shrimp scampi, truffle and prosciutto, and chicken pesto.
Coupled with wine, beer and an upbeat vibe, MidiCi is set to become the latest Fort Worth hot spot worth the line.
