Today serves as the grand opening of Bufad Pizza at the corner of 13th and Spring Garden. The pizzeria is owned by Mike and Jeniphur Pasquarello (the tandem behind Cafe Lift and Prohibition Taproom) and they are turning out Neapolitan-style pizzas that rival the best in the city.
Check out the drool-worthy photo gallery below. And if you go, stop off at Prohibition first and grab a growler.
