Daily Slice: Sicilian Pizza from Asaggio Pizza, San Diego
Daily Slice gives a quick snapshot each weekday of a different slice or pie that the folks at the Serious Eats empire have enjoyed lately.
Asiaggo Pizza Pasta Plus offers three different styles of pizza: Chicago deep dish, New York-style, and Sicilian. I scored a pepperoni Sicilian slice fresh from the oven. Rosemary is mixed into the airy dough, giving it a distinct focaccia-like character. The dough is baked without the sauce or toppings at first, so it crisps up to a light and flaky golden brown on both sides before receiving sauce and cheese. This may not be traditional, but it's pretty tasty.
A crown of creamy, stringy mozzarella and mildly spiced pepperoni sealed the deal. At $4.35 for a 7-inch square slice, it's one of the best ways to eat cheap in Seaport Village.
