Rocky’s Brick Oven Pizza had a lot to live up to. This was the first American pizza I ordered following my much-anticipated trip to the Mecca of pizzadom- Italy*. For nearly two weeks I gorged myself on some of the finest, tastiest, most authentic pizzas this little green and blue planet of ours has to offer**, and suddenly I found myself back in the mundane world of the everyday pizza…
That being said, Rocky’s Brick Oven Pizza delivered. Its thin, cracker-like crust and fresh chunky ingredients could just as well have been served at a sidewalk ristorante in Napoli.
I saw several ristorantes in Italy whose tables were weirdly across the street, so even the box is authentic!
I recommend the ham, pineapple and ricotta pizza. The small pizza is perfectly sized for one person with a healthy appetite and a determination to eat all things that are delicious.
Pineapple, ham and ricotta! All fresh off the vine***!!!
So hats off to ye, Rocky. You were a tasty transition back into the world of American pizzas and I’m not ashamed to admit I ate you all in one sitting. Haiku!
sweetening the salty crust…
Thin, barely holds it.
*Italy post coming soon!!!
**Pizzas on other planets don’t work so well. Tried one on Mars but the toppings kept floating away.
***YOU HEARD ME.
