As the forthcoming Consume Street Crossing food items hall can take condition, fifty percent of its founding workforce has introduced a new tenant that will carry Brazilian pizza to Minneapolis.
Ouro Pizzaria is a new concept from Gabriella Grant-Spangler and Ben Spangler, the few driving Bebe Zito ice cream, and just one of the two duos overseeing the food items plan at Consume Street Crossing. (Zen Box Izakaya’s John Ng and Lina Goh are the Spanglers’ companions.)
Brazilian pizza, which is “recognized for elaborate common and nontraditional toppings” equally sweet and savory, in accordance to a release, is in close proximity to and expensive to Grant-Spangler. Her dad and mom are both from Brazil, where by Italian and Japanese immigrants both equally motivated a homegrown design and style of pizza.

Grant-Spangler’s spouse, Ben Spangler, is the chef. The former pastry chef at Zelo and opening chef at Milkjam Creamery, Spangler has produced Bebe Zito’s ingenious flavors into quick icons on the Twin Cities’ ice product scene.
