Day 19, 2004: Cavaleri Pizza Market (Flushing, Queens)

DAY 19: October 19th
LOCATION: Cavaleri Pizza Market (41-27 162nd St., QUEENS)
GUEST(S): Erik Marcisak
ORDER: half of a 12" buffalo chicken pizza

PIZZA REPORT: 2 worlds merge when pizza and spicy chicken unite. This pizza was made with mozzarella, spicy tomato sauce, chunks of marinated chicken breast, and blue cheese. The thick crust provided the perfect foundation for such a creation. I have had chicken on a pizza before but in my experience, the oven tends to cook the taste out of it. Not so for Cavaleri Pizza Market. Here the spicy sauce and the marinade were expertly cut by the addition of blue cheese to bring out the taste of the chicken without overpowering the pizza taste. A good marriage of two of my favorite foods.
  • Erik Marcisak drove me out to distant Queens (Flushing) to take me to this place where his highschool friend works. Turns out his friends name is Cavaleri - and it's not a coincidence. He's a part owner.
  • Erik had a sugar cane soda with his pizza. He did not do it for the caffeine though - he just likes to try sodas he has never had before.
