I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's going to draw pizza- or bread-heads from outside the borough or even the neighborhood, but if you're live in, near, or are looking to explore this part of Astoria, you owe it to yourself to make the detour here.
'focaccia pizza' on Serious Eats
[Photograph: ESNY1077] ESNY1077 is back with another focaccia-crust pizza. (He submitted another in early July). This one has one of my new favorite toppings — I'll let you guess which one from his description: Made another square pizza this weekend using a focaccia dough with fresh mozzarella and drained canned tomatoes. This one with hot italian sausage, from Flying Pig Farms in the Union Square farmers' market and fresh jalapeños, also from the farmers' market.Sliced the jalapenos paper-thin (sort of like Paulie using a razor to slice garlic in Goodfellas) so they got nice and charred in the oven....
Many Slice'rs, myself included, use various pizza hacks to approximate the heat of a wood oven in a standard gas or electric home oven. The other night I wanted to try something different. I wondered what would happen if I accepted the limitations of my home oven instead of trying to overcome them.
