House NV Rose:
Because it was a Rose kind of day (thankfully it’s cooling down slightly)…
Insalata Rossa with Bacon, Egg & Pecorino:
This was a bold, big flavor Salad: I love bitter greens, so the Radicchio was perfect, providing a bitter, vegetal note to every bite, but it’s balanced out by the slight fattiness from the Semi-Soft-Boiled Egg, and the fresh, fried bits of Bacon (still crispy!), and the funk of fresh grated Pecorino Cheese.
Napolitana: Tomato, Mozzarella di Bufala, Olives, Anchovies, Chilies & Fried Capers Pizza:
Pizzeria Mozza remains unique in their own style of Pizza. Taking a bite, it still has that delicious crunch in the crust. The Anchovies worked surprisingly well here: Its inherent pungent ocean quality shockingly balanced and mellowed out by the Tomato Sauce and Olives.
Fennel Sausage, Panna, Mozzarella, Red Onions & Scallions Pizza:
My favorite Pizza on Mozza’s menu, I love their Housemade Fennel Sausage - it’s fragrant, aromatic, almost slightly sweet, but still meaty and savory - and then accentuated by the Scallions and Red Onions, and that lovely crunch from the crust that’s Mozza’s signature.
(@lapizzamaven have you tried any of the new pies on their menu? Any recs?)
