Apparently I have a thing for salad-inspired pizza.

But this one's a little different: the Caprese slice at Uncle Mario's in Hell's Kitchen is loaded with diced roma tomatoes and olive oil-soaked chopped basil. White marshmallow-like cubes of fresh mozzarella billow from every square inch of the pie. The thin grandma-style crust is a bit dense and crackery, but works well to support the piles of cheese and tomatoes (plus a savory cooked tomato sauce.)
