L’asso in Daily News as “Best Pizza in Manhattan”

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

“Sure the wait staff is of the hipster genus, but who’s to fault them on appearance? When the sweat of the tomatoes and cheese hits you, it is second to none. The crust is tops as well. The owner is a stickler for perfection and L’Asso reaches it as close as any pizzeria can. These pies are in the Ultimate top-tier of pizzas in NYC.” -Jeffrey Tastes

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.

Fresh Blossoms from mama

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.
