Gentilly is Getting a New Pizza Spot

Homegrown Pizza


Homegrown Pizza, a casual pizza spot with dips, sandwiches, soups, and salads, is heading to Gentilly this March. The new pizza hub will move into the spot that most recently housed the Munch Factory, which moved to the Garden District in early 2017, bringing with it whole milk mozzarella, red gravy from an old family recipe, and hand tossed pizza.

Proprietors Mike and Kathleen Hansel, both native New Orleanians with a combined 28 years in New Orleans restaurant experience, are updating the Munch Factory space with a new 25 foot bar, which they’ll use to serve craft beer and local sodas.

“Gentilly is in need of some good, local food and with our knowledge in pizza we knew we could make this work. We are excited to bring the area a restaurant it can be proud to support,” Mike Hansel said in a press release today.

Delivery will be available to Gentilly and Lakeview.
