A two cheese pie by another name would be as delicious
Today we say goodbye to Calabaza and hello to a new seasonal pizza to supercharge the winter doldrums — Spicy Fennel Puttanesca (15) mozzarella, ricotta, oregano. We first introduced a seasonal pie to our menu in August, before Genuine Pizza existed, not to mention opened out of state! Available beginning today at all Genuine Pizza and Harry’s Pizzeria locations, this pie features two cheeses that work together with sweet roasted fennel to balance a punchy tomato sauce for a simple combination that just works. Timing is everything.
“Right now we relish the days above 50 degrees like our teams in Miami do for those below,” Genuine Pizza Atlanta GM Megan Griffin explains. “I think we can all agree this pizza satisfies all kinds of winter cravings. It’s a perfect choice for those days when all you want is a little sunshine and vibrancy to cut through the chill. We like spice!”
Braving the winter has definitely taken on a whole new meaning now that we have our first restaurant where snow falls. In Miami, we wish — er — pray for those intermittent cold front weeks. They don’t come often but when they do, we relish the experience of dry 55°F degree air washing over the palms, making us feel like we’re anywhere but here. It has taken operating in Atlanta to truly understand seasonal change and how welcome, transportive and comforting a little bit of heat can be in the form of hot meal. For both mind and body. Get you some winter warming! We are now open in Downtown Dadeland (Kendall, FL), Coconut Grove (Miami, FL), Miami Design District (Miami, FL), Aventura Mall (Aventura, FL), and Phipps Plaza (Buckhead/Atlanta, GA) Visit genuinepizza.com and harryspizzeria.com to find location near you and to order online.
Have to taste to learn.
Ready in the ATL!
Genuine Pizza will open its first Atlanta location on Friday at the main entrance of Phipps Plaza in the heart of Buckhead. This will be our first pizzeria out of state and with a private dining room… as well as our first restaurant where it snows! We’ve been working so hard to get open that somehow these little things are just astounding in their magnitude when you have a brief pause to reflect on them. The team on the ground is working just as tirelessly to bring this place to life from front and back of house. The goal is to exude that Genuine Culture we know and love at home.

Originating in Miami, where we have now for casual pizza restaurants, the idea is about on honest ingredients, creative toppings combinations, and a thoughtful experience from dough to table. Genuine Pizza Atlanta looks like the fraternal twin of Aventura, with a menu anchored by 12 hand-formed pizzas featuring a tender, quick-fired crust and snacks, soups, salads, entrées and dessert to make a meal around it. The restaurant also offers a list of wines that work great with food, as well as Atlanta craft beers. Signature items include Short Rib Pizza; Polenta Fries with spicy ketchup; Warm Brussels Sprouts and Burrata; and Chocolate Chunk Cookie, warmed in the oven to order. Every day there is a Daily pizza special and a soup of the day.

“We are passionate about our favorite food and can’t wait to bring our genuine approach to the Atlanta community,” says Michael Schwartz. “We’re introducing classic dishes from our flagship location while embracing our new Atlanta community as we fold in seasonal offerings, local beer selections and gluten-free options.”
