The custom-made, volcano-shaped Volcana oven dominates the premises at Magma, its 10-foot-tall hot rock heater designed to be able to cook 10 large pizzas in two minutes. Diners can decorate small or large pizzas with more than 30 different toppings, or furnish tables with any of 14 oven-cooked specialties such as the BBQ chicken pizza or the Middle Eastern-inspired vegiterranea ($13.95 for a 12” pizza; $19.95 for 16”). Meanwhile, guests wishing to plunge into the flaming heart of hunger without dining in the fireplace may warm up to the vulcanas—doughy, Volcana-toasted creations basted in spices and filled with a variety of meats, vegetables, and cheeses ($11.95 large or $7.25 small). Pizza and vulcana-based menus also include wraps, sandwiches, calzones, and Middle Eastern appetizers such as baba ghanoush ($5.95), alongside American-Italian favorites such as mozzarella sticks ($5.95). Crispy, volcano-browned fare is made to order daily, using fresh ingredients, dough prepared on-site, and silverware fluent in five languages.
Magma Pizza and Pita additionally hosts adults and young sous-chefs for make-your-own-pizza parties. Participants can roll out the dough, apply sauce and cheese, and cook their pizza in the volcanic stone oven, or don a chef’s hat and attempt to proceed using willpower alone. Pizza-partiers receive chef instruction, plus a salad and drink to accompany their creations. With its walls painted to evoke the earth’s magma-filled interior and the occasional tabletop resembling slabs of prehistoric rock, Magma Pizza & Pita presents an inviting setting for youngsters or lapsed adventure novelists.
Magma Pizza & Pita
Golden splatters of magma embellish the eatery's fire-red walls and draw eyes to the back of the dining room, where a 10-foot-high volcano pulses with flames. Well, it's actually a custom oven, but it houses real hot lava rocks designed to cook up to 10 large Mediterranean-inspired pies in two minutes flat.
Chefs top dough made fresh daily with eclectic ingredients ranging from grilled eggplant and sun-dried tomatoes to smoked gouda and meatballs. Sharing space inside the specialty oven are vulcanas, similar to calzones and jam-packed with meats, veggies, and gooey cheese. Other fare includes certified Angus beef burgers and pitawiches, all aptly washed down with chilly fountain drinks sourced from Magma Pizza & Pita's sister restaurant, located inside of a real underground igloo.
