LOCATION: Sal's Pizzeria (305 Court St, BROOKLYN)
GUEST(S): Michael Jeffrey Cohen, Rachael Mason, Erika Kern, Tony Carnevale, Maddy Mako
ORDER: 1 slice of white, 1 slice of cheese
PIZZA REPORT: White on! The white slice I ate was outstanding. The little bits of spinach mixed masterfully in the cheese with a hint of garlic...all on a brick oven baked crust. The cheese slice was orange, so next to the white slice (with green spinach), I had all the colors of the Irish flag. Obviously, in order to be that orange, the cheese slice must have been made with a different type of cheese than the white but I still liked it. I like the cheese slice and loved the white slice. At first I was wondering why they would cook the slices in a brick oven then reheat them as needed in a conventional oven. Then I think I figured it out. Brick oven pizza makes each slice more flavorful and more sturdy. However, since a brick oven cooks the crust at such a high temperature, a slice cannot endure another brick oven cook cycle.
