Located in Carrboro’s South Green shopping center, Chef Teddy Diggs’ Roman pizzeria is the first of its kind in the South.
What is roman inspired pizza (pizza romana) anyways?
Pizza dough in Rome is rolled very thin and the addition of extra virgin olive oil into the dough gives the crust more weight, flavor, and a crispy cracker like crunch. Roman style pizza dough is also relatively low in hydration (the higher the hydration then the wetter the dough, the wetter the dough then the softer and more flexible finished crust will be.) Therefore, Coronato’s crust is thin, perfectly blistered and crunchy.
Coronato’s menu draws inspiration from both, our local community of farmers and artisan and the Eternal City’s bustling neighborhood pizzeria that churn out cracker-thin crust pizzas and delicious snacks.
In the glass, Coronato offers local craft beers and cider, prosecco (and spritz!) on tap and select Italian wines by the glass, alongside bottles of wine and bubbles that pair perfectly for pizza-loving wine enthusiasts everywhere. Coronato brings the casual and lively vibe of Rome’s urban side street eateries to Carrboro. We focus on terrific ingredients and techniques and we serve our guests thoughtfully and from our hearts. We also really love pizza!
