DAY 28: October 28th
LOCATION: Lombardi's Pizzeria (32 Spring St., NYC)
GUEST(S): Matt Evans, Dave Thunder, Carl Arnheiter, Tony Carnevale
ORDER: 2 slices of cheese, 2 slices of pepperoni
PIZZA REPORT: Viva Lombardi's! The oldest pizzeria in America got bigger since pizza month '03, but the pizza they could is from the same sweet coal-fired oven. The pepperoni at Lombardi's is about a half an inch in diameter but packs a taste equal to any other twice its size. After enduring the extensive heat of the coal-fired oven mentioned above, the pepperonis begin to warp upward. I think it has something to do with the moisture around the edges of the pepperoni drying out faster than the center. Whatever the reason the net result is a crispy yet chewy pepperonis. I really like it. The plain cheese slices I had were especially good. I think this was due to the parmesan cheese sprinkled in just the right amount atop the pizza. The crispy crust, fresh tomato sauce, and perfect distribution of toppings established the a utopian society right in my mouth.
