Patrizia’s in New York City has one of my new favorite pizzas that combines two loves: margherita pizza and a calzone. Your traditional margherita pizza in the shape of a star, hence it’s name, and pointed tips filled with ricotta. A favorite on our pizza tour and pairs perfectly with their red Aglianico wine.

PIZ'ZA FOR LIFE
“WELCOME TO THE 'ZA REPORT
THE GLORIOUS JOURNEY OF A PROFESSIONAL PIZZA ENTHUSIAST”
While I live in NYC, the pizza capitol of the world, I still must pay homage to my favorite spots from back home. Topping my list: Adriatico’s Pizza in Cincinnati. A spicy sicilian square with a blend of 2 cheeses that packs a punch. Marion’s Pizza in Dayton, Ohio. A round pizza cut into squares (aka tavern style), a whole lot of oregano, a sweet & tangy sauce and burned cheese markings coat the top.
After many years of research and pizza consumption, I prefer to pair root beer with my pizza. I recommend the following three root beers: 1. Stewart's 2. Foxon Park (New Haven brew!) 3. Olde Brooklyn 4. Sprecher. When I can't find a bottle of root beer, I default to a NYC staple, Mexican Coca-Cola out of the bottle. Using real sugar, it is in a class of it's own compared with what we have in the states!
Once a week, the best day of my week, I proudly give pizza tours for Scott’s Pizza Tours scottspizzatours.com. I met Scott over five years ago and when he asked me what I knew about pizza, I said “a bit.” A bit later turned into “a whole lot more” than I bargained for. Scott is my mentor when it comes to the crust, sauce and cheese combo. Check out our tours and come get cheesy with us!
