Kidder Street Deli - Wilkes-Barre

Kidder St. Deli Firing Up Unique and Supremely Delicious Wood-Fired Pizzas in Wilkes-Barre

Kidder St. Deli's unique "Neo-Neopolitan" type pizza features a delicious charred crust.  Charring, or leoparding is a desirable result for this style of pizza - IT'S NOT BURNED!

I first learned about Barton Weidlich's unique wood fired pizza when I visited his previous location Sprinkles and Shakes in Plains.  I was very impressed with the pizza at that time at the time was sorry to see that he sold the place because I was left wanting more of that pizza!  So you can imagine I was thrilled to learn that he was opening another shop on Kidder Street near TGI Fridays and the Host Inn.

The place is pretty casual, an interesting building covered in art inside what appears to be a nicely retrofitted garage of some kind.  It has a really cool industrial vibe, but the most important part of the place besides the pizza is Barton who is the lifeblood of it all.  He's creative, he's funny, he's interesting and he's a talented pizzaiolo who just likes to do everything in his own unique way.  Just listen to his passion in the video below!



As you can see in the video, I very much enjoyed both the traditional red pizza along with the chicken marsala pizza.  Both were built upon the wonderfully soft and tender crust which is soft in the middle and charred on the outside.  Some in NEPA don't understand or appreciate the char.  I say EMBRACE THE CHAR!  And go check out Kidder St. Deli in Wilkes-Barre!
