DAY 7: OCTOBER 7th, 2009

ORDER: 2 slices of Margherita, 1 slice of sausage and broccoli rabe with chili sauce
GUEST(S): Jen MacNeil, Kevin Danenberg
From Naples with love. Meet Ciro, Mattieu, and Salvatore. In the back, that brick-clad heating device is their brick oven. These are the primary reasons you will love Little Luzzo's (pronounced Loo'tzos). Their Neopolitan pizza expertise as well as their accents are a dead giveaway that this is the REAL DEAL.
Each pie is prepared with imported Italian sauce, and plenty of it. The cheese is bufala mozzarella and the crust is handcrafted (and tossed, when the camera's on) by the affable pizza experts before being perfectly baked in the aforementioned gas-powered brick oven. But how much would you pay for all of this imported goodness? Little Luzzo's charges $2.50 for a slice AND a drink. Now, that's a real deal on the REAL DEAL. It won't be long before people will pay double for the very same product so go there now and you may get one of the few seats.
Little Luzzo's is related to Luzzo's in the East Village but does not serve the same pizza. According to Ciro, the owner of Luzzo's "trusts us to make good pizza." With good reason I may add.
1. Little Luzzo's is new so if you live in the area, make them feel at home.
2. Kevin plays the saxaphone at weddings around the country! Jen's a writer.
