Watch as our bakers mix organic, stone-ground flour sourced from Mulino Marino in Piemonte with our natural mother yeast before hand-shaping all of our housemade loaves and Roman-style bakery pizza. Pick up a loaf of freshly baked bread, from our famous Otto loaf to the classic ciabatta, or enjoy a slice of pizza alla pala while you explore our marketplace.
Pizza alla Pala is closed at this time
Lievito madre, or “mother leaven,” is the key to transforming flour and water into traditional Italian bread. The yeast makes the bread rise and adds a unique flavour that is specific to the climate, water, flour, and history behind each mother. Our time-honoured yeast gives each loaf a rustic sourness; it is tested daily by our head baker to determine how to yield the best bread possible.
PIZZA ALLA PALA
Every day, our bakers create the unique Pizza alla Pala, a favourite street food from Rome. This thin-crust pizza is named after the wooden pala, or “paddle,” on which it is served. Ready to enjoy on-the-go, these traditional Italian flatbreads are topped with a variety of freshly sliced meats, cheeses and local seasonal vegetables, then sliced into squares.
Eataly’s bakery offers an abundant selection of focaccia, a Ligurian flatbread topped with high-quality ingredients, including simply sea salt and extra virgin olive oil, olives and herbs, tomato sauce and mozzarella, and stuffed – perfect for a light lunch option on the go.
