A new Worcester pizza place flings open its doors today at 11 a.m., officially unveiling its menu of Neapolitan-style pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and much more. Dacosta's Pizza Bakery passed its final inspection this week and is ready to fire up its wood-fueled oven.

The restaurant imported its 6,000-pound pizza oven from Naples, Italy, and will churn out plenty of pies to celebrate its opening day. Dacosta’s also features a special menu item — a sandwich called a panuozzo that’s a cross between a calzone and a pita and gets a slight char from the oven.

With the opening of Dacosta’s, Worcester continues to grow as a hotbed of pizza joints. Another Neapolitan pizza-focused restaurant, Volturno, is just down the road, and Antonio's Pizza by the Slice opened at 268 Chandler St. in May.
