New Pizza Style in NYC Uses Puff Pastry as Crust

You know, I thought I had linked to this Village Voice blog post the day it came out in one of the daily(ish) Leftovers I do, but it looks like I didn't. Oh, well, I was going to give it its own post anyway, since it's totally worth it.

The heart of the matter: Robert Sietsema has discovered a new pizza style in Manhattan at Birdbath Bakery:

[Birdbath] has come up with a pizza based, not on the usual yeast- or sourdough-risen crust, but with a flaky puff pastry crust. The crust renders brittle and oily, and tastes fantastic.

Sietsema says that they're using a good-quality mozzarella and that a spinach and goat cheese version is also available.
