PIZZAIOLO & PARTNER. When Kyle Munroe landed his first kitchen job at the age of 16, he already had three years of catering experience under his belt. After completing his degree at the Oregon Culinary Institute, he earned a spot on the opening team at Oven and Shaker. Kyle hammered out his culinary craft at Clyde Common and Associated, but pizza kept calling him back. As a chef for Vera Pizza Napoletana certified Settebello, Kyle traveled the Western U.S., opening new locations and ensuring adherence to VPN standards. Each of the thousands of pizzas made under his tutelage spoke the truth of authentic ingredients, perfect char, and genuine regional recipes. He is, without question, a master at the oven and we doubt there’s a Pizzaiolo more dedicated to the art of wood-fired cooking in the state.
