Tried a pizza at the new neopolitan place at Pacific City in HB today, Il Barone Sicilian Street Food. Thought a bianca would be pleasant to try as I typically enjoy the type of pie (Mozza's bianca for example or, obviously Bianco's out in AZ).
I am not real sure if they know what they're doing here as they said that you can't put sage leaves on the pizza or else they burn...but since Mozza does it just fine, it seems like that can't be true?
Anyhow, they blast the thing with rosemary and sage oil + gorgonzola, fontina, and mozz. The cheese blend is pretty funky and actually comes out alright. The amount of oil is really intense, though lol
Kind of like ultra-greasy pizza. I guess it was ok. Not sure if the center was soupy, or it was just soaked in oil. The crust itself was fairly lightly cooked, not terrible, but not a ton of chew to it. It felt most like eating a grilled cheese sandwich than a pizza if that makes any sense at all hah.
On Grubhub the pizza is listed as $12, but in reality it's $14 + $1.09 tax; so $17 with tip, not super expensive, not going to knock any socks off I guess. I mean, probably should just drive to Settebello, but it's literally right next to a coffee counter I frequent, so I figured I would give it a go after hearing some people next to me eating some of the pizza raving about it. I think they were Neopolitan neophytes, though.
**I will note, I actually feel pretty ill after consuming just half of this pizza, and I have a pretty high hedonism tolerance. I wouldn't recommend consuming it.
