Urban Pizza features hand-tossed pizza
Dennis Milano brings 40 years of pizza-making experience to his new family-run Urban Pizza in downtown Santa Rosa, in central Sonoma County.
After a 34-year run as Milano’s Pizzeria in San Francisco, the family recently opened this small take-out and delivery restaurant featuring pizzas, piadinas (light and tasty Italian flatbread sandwiches), and salads. Everything is kept simple but delicious, with quality ingredients like whole milk mozzarella, homemade dough and sauces, and fresh produce.
Hand-tossing pizza is an art form that stretches the dough to the proper size while creating a thick crust around the edges. This manages the moisture so the dough comes out slightly drier outside and moist inside.
The Urban Combo signature pizza includes red sauce, mozzarella, salami, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, onion, and bell pepper. The Thai One On is topped with garlic, mozzarella, chicken breast, carrots, bell pepper, onion, and fresh cilantro with peanut sauce and a drizzle of sweet chili sauce, while the True Greek features red sauce, mozzarella, bell pepper, onion, black olive, and a sprinkle of oregano, plus cold feta, tomato, and cucumber.
