Providence Coal-Fired Pizza Opens Just Over EG Line

by | Dec 8, 2014

More than a year in the works, Providence Coal-Fired Pizza opened up a second restaurant last week, at 6105 Post Road in North Kingstown just south of Frenchtown Road, in the space formerly occupied by 007 Bar and Grille.

It’s been a complete makeover.

Walk in and the oven is before you. Coal-fired doesn’t mean charcoal. They use anthracite coal, which burns clean, according to Mike Santos, one of the owners. And it burns very hot – 1,200 degrees. A wood-fired oven burns at 500 or 600 degrees. Needless to say, pizzas cook fast – four minutes, Santos said. But they still take a bit of time, since each pie has to be assembled and everything’s made fresh, he said.

Santos said East Greenwich’s reputation as a restaurant hub was a positive for Providence Coal-Fired Pizza.

“For us, the more restaurants the better,” he said. “People come to the area. I think that drives more business. It’s better if you have choices.”
