Lucky Number Seven in our search for #thebestgrandmaever came from a lovely little "ristorante" called Abbondanza Trattoria.
Delicious air, that is.
Chris and I took a bite and promptly described the pizza to each other as "airy","fluffy", "like a focaccia donut", and my favorite one from Chris -- "an Italian cloud".
The pizza had all the trimmings of a traditional grandma -- crushed tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, olive oil and garlic. The outer crust was satisfyingly crispy and made an audible "crunch" when bitten into, but the bottom and interior crust was flaky and delightful. It is hands down the most pillowy pizza I've ever had.
The next day it was near perfect, with the garlic coming through a little stronger than day 1. And unlike Pie #2, there was no extra moisture -- no sogginess.
Abbodanza's Pizza della Nonna was exactly what comes to mind when you hear "Grandma Pizza." It tasted authentically homemade, with the tomatoes and garlic and overall delightful flavors, and I am pretty confident that this is THE ONE, folks.
Next Day/Cold Pizza test: A+
Abbodanza's pizza #7 gets an A+!
Will next week's pizza top this? I can't wait to find out!
