Stone Oven Pizza La Biere

Authentic Neapolitan pizzeria serving dough made with natural Minakami spring waters.

Italian Cuisine

La Biere, a handmade brick-oven pizzeria inside the Minakami Hot Springs area. Each pizza is made to order and baked to perfection! The handmade dough is made from Minakami spring waters and local flours before being topped and baked quickly in a high-temperature brick oven for a perfect “crisp, chewy” texture.

Their famous menu item, the “La Biere” takes after the shop’s name. The unique recipe includes a local, Minakami variety of Maitake mushroom, the “sukuyoka”, for a rich flavor that balances perfectly with mozzarella cheese. Another to try is the “Jamon Minakami Arugula Pizza”, a pizza slathered with mozzarella cheese and topped with ham and arugula. The ham used is “Jamon Minakami”, a ham variety from local, veteran butcher shop Ikufuudo.
In addition to the 10 pizzas available, there are plenty of sweets to try. Arguably one of the most popular is the “Torori Torokeru (thickly melted) Minakami Pudding”, available in limited quantities.

Terrace seating is available during the summer season, and orders are available for takeout. Why not swing by for a taste of gourmet made from the delicious waters of Minakami?
