Ibis Bakery taking reservations for Wednesday’s pizza night
Ibis Bakery‘s latest pizza night — this Wednesday, July 29 — will have just one variety available. But it sounds more than worth the drive to Lenexa (the bakery is located at 12817 West 87th Street Parkway) for a taste.
Chris Matsch, who owns the business with his wife, Kate, says this time the pie features black plum tomatoes (“They’re dark brown and more savory than sweet,” he says), zucchini, onion, basil and cheese. The produce and dairy come from Stony Crest Urban Farm, KC Food Circle and the New Roots for Refugees farmers, Green Dirt Farm, and the Shatto Milk Co.
Matsch says the pizza dinners, which last from 6 to 9 p.m., allow Ibis to experiment with different kinds of dough. In this case, it’s a sourdough crust, made with the much-geeked-about 00 pizza flour, sourdough starter, olive oil and salt. “It’s a crispy, light, airy crust,” he explains. “We’ll have whole pizzas, big enough for two people, for $15, and pizza by the slice.”
Wine and beer will be available for sale, as well as some kind of pastry. Matsch says, “We’ve got a lot of really beautiful peaches — we’ll do something with those. And we’re planning to have enough dough to make 200 pizzas.”
Make a reservation here. An August pizza night is on the way, too.
