LOCATION: Lombardi's Pizzeria (Spring St. and Mott St., NYC)
GUEST(S): Tony Carnevale, Kevin Hines
ORDER: 3 slices of cheese, 2 slices of pepperoni and garlic
PIZZA REPORT: Famously delicious. It can't be easy being THE pizzeria that started it all in the United States and still churn out just about the most delicious pizza in the business, but Lombardi's does just that. My favorite part of Lombardi's pizza is the cheese-sauce tandem. This combination is absolutely perfect in distribution and quality. The imported Italian sauce is mixed with several spices and sits alongside the fresh mozzarella which is sliced so thin it practically melts in your mouth (even though it's technically already melted on the pizza). With each bite of the plain cheese slices, I enjoyed just the right amount of each topping. To make matters better, these idyllic toppings come on a coal-fired brick oven crust. My pepperoni and garlic slices were also tasty. I typically don't like too much garlic and the Lombardi's staff must have sensed that and just put a hint of it on the pizza adding yet another taste sensation to an already delectable specimen (thank you, Mr. Roget!).
