About

Kimberly Gonzalez was working as a program coordinator at Laney College when her uncle, Carlos Lopez, approached her to start Nahua Pizza. Although Carlos stepped away in 2018, Nahua Pizza continues to be a family affair. Kimberly works with her mother the most since she makes the pizza dough, which needs to be prepared at least 48 to 72 hours in advance of the farmers market.

Sourcing

Depending on the season, Nahua sources fresh ingredients such as basil, tomatoes, arugula, and kale directly from local farms like Everything Under the Sun and K&J Orchards. They source berries from Yerena Farms to create experimental pies, such as their four-cheese berry pizza.
