DAY 29: OCTOBER 29th, 2017

LOCATION: Apizza Regionale (590 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11201)

GUEST(S): Robin Rothman, Jun Naito

ORDER: 3 slices of Apizza (Tomato sauce, house mozzarella, caciocavallo, fresh basil, grana, marash chili flake), 2 slices of Meatball (Tomato sauce, sliced meatballs, caramelized onions, house mozzarella, pecorino romano, fresh basil), 1.5 slices of Mushroom Arrosto (Roasted shitake, king oyster and cremini mushrooms, house mozzarella, whipped ricotta, rosemary)

Apizza is A+ pizza. Tucked inside the Gotham Market at The Ashland in Fort Greene, Brooklyn is a counter service brick oven pizzeria called Apizza Regionale. Remember this name because it might soon be your favorite! Created by Dinosaur Bar-B-Que's John Stage, this locally sourced upstart features pies that combine the best of the Naples and New York. Each signature pie is individually sized and baked in an Italian domed brick oven in the Neapolitan style with a crisp New York outer edge. The sausage and fresh mozzarella are made in house and the high quality topping combinations are mouth-watering. I recommend the Meatball pie. Just the right amount of each ingredient is used to enhance every bite. Rich tomato sauce, thinly sliced caramelized onion, creamy fresh mozzarella and savory meatballs are garnished with some shredded pecorino and diced basil for an overall flavor you will savor until your next visit. Since Apizza Regionale sits inside a food hall, the shared dining areas and cost of food-runners is passed on to the consumer. So, in addition to being delicious, the high quality pies are very affordable. I can't wait to go back to Apizza Regionale.

1. Jun Naito still makes his own ice cream. He's also still a great actor that keeps popping up on my television.  Most recently he was featured in the later episodes of Z: The Beginning of Everything.

2. Robin Rothman, Jun, and I all got ice cream from Malai. I love all ice cream but the Sea Salt Vanilla I got here in my cinnamon waffle cone was the best tasting ice cream in recent memory.
