Quattro Staggioni Pizza Circolare
from Italianni’s [takeout]
in my apartment
Based on a recent dramatically disappointing experience with a dish that I’d previously enjoyed very much (see generally 5.352 Grilled Pepper Fish Fillet with Spaghetti), I had concerns that the restaurant had broken bad, like Cyma (see generally 5.254 Lamb Keftedes).
The pizza would seem to allay those worries somewhat. “Quattro” = (1) pepperoni + (2) gorgonzola + (3) shrimp & olive + (4) mushroom & artichoke. Topped with rucola, could’ve used more–everything can always use more rucola. The crust was the best part: moist, but not at all oily, chewy, well-seasoned. In fact, although I often discard the end pieces, I cut them off with a knife and ate them first, leaving the middle of the pie for lunch tomorrow. Good stuff.
For now, Italianni’s remains safe.
