Inspired by the Filetti pizza at Anthony Mangieri's Una Pizza Napoletana, this pie combines fresh cherry tomatoes with mozzarella, basil, garlic, olive oil, and a couple twists of our own.
'tomato' on Serious Eats
Rubirosa's Caprese pizza is offered year round, typically with cherry tomatoes. But right now they are layering it with slices of juicy red, green, and yellow tomatoes and this is one pizza that is worth having! If you know of other pizzas featuring peak-of-the-season tomatoes, tell us in the comments.
You could say we're fans of Chris Bianco's pizza around here on Slice. So we were excited to find out what's recently been bubbling and fermenting in the fertile mind of the First Poet Laureate of pizza: his own line of organic San Marzano tomatoes.
Inspired by last week's semi-dried cherry tomato Daily Slice from Di Fara, I made my own slow-roasted, tiny-tomato topping for our weekly "Pizza Night" at home. This really couldn't be more simple, and, like last week's sausage topping, you can do the roasting while you make dough or let it come to room temperature after a cold rise.
The key to great NY-style sauce is the balance between sweetness, acidity, heat, with a definite herbal backbone and a texture that's thin enough enough to spread, but thick enough to keep your pizza from turning soggy during the de rigeur fold-and-carry.
