DAY 29: October 29th
LOCATION: Patsy's (1st ave bet 117th and 118th st, NYC)
GUEST: Birch Harms, Kevin Hines
ORDER: 3 slices of fresh mozzarella and 2 slices of pepperoni
PIZZA REPORT: Coal-fired up! My experience at Patsy's adds further support to the theory that 'I love the taste of NYC coal-fired pizza'. Both of our pies were delicious. The slices are thin and, at the advice of the Patsy's cook, should not be loaded with many toppings. He also told us the cooktime for a pie is less than 3.5 minutes. Ours must have been in the oven for bit more than 3.5 minutes as slightly overdone spots were evident on both crust rims. Amazingly enough, however, the taste and consistency of the burnt crust was virtually unHARMed (pun intended, Birch). The well-applied sauce and brilliant cheese distribution made each Patsy's pie not just a pizza but a masterpizz-a.
