Thanks for the Link-Love
December 10, 2004
Just a shout-out to my boy Slice, who added me to his link list recently -- want to make sure visitors from New York's best pizza blog to feel at home, so I bring you two gorgeous specimens: the marinara and the bianca pizza's from Una Pizza Napoletana, which I hit for the second time last night with Rob, Nic, David, and Mike.
Una Pizza only serves one thing, classic, Neapolitan-style pizza, cooked in a wood-fired brick oven, and they offer four varieties, two of which I tasted on my first visit. Now that I've had them all, I have to say that my favorite is still the filetti (cherry tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, garlic, olive oil, basil, and sea salt), followed by the marinara (San Marzano tomatoes, olive oil, oregano, garlic, basil, and sea salt), the bianca (buffalo mozzarella, olive oil, garlic, basil, sea salt), and then the margherita (San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, olive oil, basil, sea salt). Each of us ranked them slightly differently, which just illustrates the variety in palates that are floating around out there. If you haven't been to Una Pizza (or to Slice, for that matter), you should go as soon as humanly possible.
And on a non-pizza-related note, thanks to Hugh at Gaping Void for the recent link-love as well. NOTE: If you've come here looking for a picture of my tits, you're not going to find one. Sorry.
