MORE THAN SOURDOUGH: PIE BY NIGHT
Pie By Night is a pop-up pizza joint that happens every Sunday at Polestar Hearth. It is a passion project started by Connor Ross (who is a full-time baker at Polestar during the week) with the help of Abby Ritcher, Brooke Howard and Jesse Wallace. Living and working in Guelph’s restaurant industry, Connor and his friends noticed there was no one focusing solely on serving high-quality pizza. So, to fix that, they started Pie by Night. Here’s what it’s all about:
1. Pie By Night serves Neapolitan-inspired pizzas cooked in stone ovens that mimic some of the characteristics of a wood-fired hearth.
2. These pizzas, made up of fresh and organic ingredients sourced from nearby farmers and purveyors, are a locavore’s dream.
3. Their dough is hand-stretched to order and created from 00 flour milled in Quebec. The product of countless trials, this flour has been tailored to the exacting specifications of the oven used by the makers of Pie By Night.
4. The Pie By Night team is the real deal – comprised of experienced culinary wizards with culinary and pastry degrees, and years working in top-notch restaurants across Guelph and beyond.
5.These folks make seventy five pizzas each Sunday – and they sell out quick. A handful of pizzas are reserved for walk-ins, while the rest are reserved as pre-orders by email, Facebook or Instagram.
