Description: After being hand stretched and topped, pizzas come from the oven bubbling hot with the cheese almost molten. Toppings range from grilled artichokes made fresh in-house to organic Italian chicken sausage to natural pepperoni without nitrates or nitrites. Some of the more popular pizzas have been the Vongole (white pizza with sautéed clams and bacon) and the Verdure, a vegetable topped pizza with grilled baby artichokes, caramelized grilled red onions, and a sautéed mushroom medley. Also featured are the dessert pizzas such as the Cioccolato, a 6” round freshly baked and topped with chocolate hazelnut spread and white and dark chocolate chips. Ecco Pizzeria is located in Allston, MA, a neighborhood of Boston where many students live and pass by on their way to and from school. Just across the street lies Brookline, a town filled with young families who are health conscious and ready to try pizza that is better for their health than traditional pizzas.The Theme“360 degrees of green” is how Steve Silverman, owner describes his restaurant. The pizzeria was built with environmentally friendly elements such as energy efficient heating and air conditioning, floor tiles made from recycled tile dust, low VOC paints, and cork, a sustainable plant material. The restaurant separates trash, recycling, and compostable materials. All of its plates, utensils, cups, etc. are made from plant products and are compostable. 95% of the kitchen equipment including the artisan style pizza oven were purchased used, reducing the potential carbon footprint it would have taken to fit up the space.
