'Always Hungry' on the Calzone at Nick's in Forest Hills
Always Hungry is raving about the calzone at Nick's Pizza in Forest Hills, Queens, and it looks pretty good to me:
Small or large, the calzone is unlike any other in New York. Choose a filling from the list of pizza toppings. They range from the conventional—sausage and pepperoni—to sun-dried tomatoes, and prosciutto. Outside, its flat crust more resembles grilled cheese than a calzone. Inside, it's totally filled with a soupy, flavorful, nonpareil ricotta accented with melted mozzarella. And the sauce! Sweet and seed-speckled—slightly chunky. Served steaming in a tea cup on a saucer. It's soup-worthy, drinkable—there's a reason why it comes in a cup with a handle.
