Pop-up Pizzeria? Who Knew? By The New Scene

Introducing Nomad Micro Pizzeria!

"Picture hot, bubbly cheese and a charred, crunchy and chewy crust in a pizza baked incredibly fast!

Not a fan of dairy? No problem! Choose from a number of variations. And not some pre-baked, reheated slice but a personal pie baked just for you to your specifications at the time and often the place you are most craving one.

Does all this sound like Neopolitan-style pizza fantasy?

We are happy to report that since this past April it’s real and it’s right here in Fort Collins!

This beautiful, artisanal and specially-crafted pizza is made with the finest ingredients as well as the most authentic ingredients from Italy such as Italian 00 flour. With dough kneaded by hand, just like they do in the “old country,” your pie is baked in a compact but super-powerful stand-alone pizza oven at over 900 degrees in just 90 seconds!

And where does all this pizza magic happen? Currently, Nomad Micro Pizzeria operates on select days on the patio at Prost Brewing at 321 Old Firehouse Alley in Fort Collins — scheduled times are available on social media and are sometimes posted at Prost. It’s the perfect treat to go with the perfect brew!

Now with two little kids in tow, prior to starting a family, Alexis and Aaron Pencar lived all over the United States, thus the name “Nomad.” During their adventures they developed a passion to have their own business. In addition to having worked in fine dining, Aaron worked in an upscale Boulder pizzeria where he noted some best practices and wanted to bring them home to Fort Collins.

And that’s how FoCo folks got so lucky. In no time, Alexis and Aaron had done their research, discovered these exceptional ovens, and began canvasing local pubs and breweries to see where they could set up their pop-up pizzerias.

Check us out on Facebook and Instagram for scheduled evenings, often Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 6pm to  9pm at Prost and to see their 5-star reviews like “…the best pizza I’ve ever had in Fort Collins!”

And now that they are time-tested and have become real “pizza pros” they are ready to cater your next event. Contact them at www.nomadfoco.com or 970-599-1089."
