Pizza DOC

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Made with tomato, fresh buffalo mozzarella, basil, and olive oil, the Margherita DOC follows the strict legal standards the Italian government now demands of all “Pizza DOC.” Also known as “Pizza Napolitana Verace,” it is the definition of genuine Neapolitan pizza. Despite being thousands of miles away from Italy, L’asso proudly follows the “Pizza DOC” in hopes of finally bringing a more traditional and “legal” version of pizza to New York.

The “Pizza DOC” consists of the following:

1. Tomatoes must be San Marzano

2. Mozzarella must be Buffalo-Milk

3. Oil must be Olive Oil.

4. Use of natural salt, not imitation.

5. The oven must be domed, made of bricks and wood-burning at between 790-900 degrees.
(420-480 degrees C)

6. Dough must be kneaded by hand. Use of
blenders or rolling pins are not permitted.

This is our new add in the ONION. get a copy, cut it out and put it on you’r fridge. These are the Ritter’s. Noah in the middle has been coming to L’asso for a couple of years. He met his wife Clariza, fell in love and ate a lot of slices. Nohli, their little baby, is the product of pure pizza love. She is one of the L’asso Test Babies; eating the pizza while still in the womb and devouring any slice the comes near here ever since. This is another great photo by the one and only world famous Keith Major.  EAT THE PIZZA

Zuccini Blossom Pizza

Rob is stealing blossoms from his mother’s house and putting them on pizza.  Check our twitter and we’ll send an update when Rob bring’s them in.  They go right away and we only have enough fresh ones for about 2-3 pies a week.  Right now we’re making it with fresh mozzarella, Gorgonzola,provolone, fresh shaved parmesean, zucchini, zucchini flowers and olive oil.  MAN. My great uncle Pete used to get fresh blossoms from the farmers market, deep fry them and eat em with blue cheese. He was maverick in his field.
