Every once in a while you get to have some fun, and pizza definitely counts. Here is the first pie of many that I made at Merchant’s Mile High Saloon in Denver. The owner asked me to create a dough and sauce recipe that people would love and that his staff could make with little kitchen experience. I delivered a simple recipe on both and topped it with some very high character cheeses (pecorino romano mozzarella) to get crispy, delicious pizza by the slice.
Alright, the name says a lot but there this was a cake with 5 layers and Nutella filling. Bit dense, bit rich, quite pleasing!
Al John’s, it’s so sad but I don’t know when I will get to see you again! Unfortunately, my wife’s grandparents are no longer living down the street, and Princeton Junction is not a hot tourist destination. I’ll miss you!
Ahh, this was not the Napoli style pizza I was looking for. I felt like everything served had its positive and negative points, dry but tender, crunchy but way too much corse flour, rich but way too oily. This is not how I like to dine. I like to focus on exploring unexpected positive traits. Oh well, it did leave my wife and I discussing our top three outside of Napoli:
- Napule, Tokyo Japan
- Mr. Pizza Man, Florence Italy &
- Zavino’s, Philadelphia PA
