Construction is underway at Nomad’s new pizza spot at 1305 Locust Street. As seen in the photo above, a Nomad Pizza awning has installed. Work continues inside, but not on a pizza oven, Nomad’s Stalin Bedon and Tom Grim can rely on the oven that has been there when the space was Girasole and Spiga.

Interestingly, the name on the awning is Nomad Pizza but Michael Klein reported that the name will be Nomad Roman. A tip that the pair plan on offering suddenly en vogue Roman style of pizza that has sprung up on menus around town, including at Pizzeria Vetri and Bufad Roman-style round pies.

    Art – I thought that the pizza was not Roman al taglio slices (as are available at Bufad and Pizzeria Vetri) but rather Roman-style crust. While similar to Neapolitan pizzas, Roman-style crusts are thinner and crisper.

      Is what you’re talking about the “extra thin and crispy Roman pizza” that Nomad offers at its current 7th Street location?

        Correct, it will not be the Roman al taglio slices but the Roman-style pizzas. I got the details in from Nomad’s Tom Grim.

    I am guessing this has to be al taglio. Al taglio fits the lunch time take-out crowd. Extra thin and crispy Roman-style is normally whole pie only. Now, I just want to see a place like Rome that has the giant 2′ x 4′ cast iron pizza pans.
