'wine' on Serious Eats

Lapp, aka 'Pizzaexpert,' aka 'Worst Pizza' Appears on the Gary Vaynerchuk Show

Lapp, who you might know here on Slice as pizzaexpert (aka the Worst Pizza Guy), appeared on Gary Vaynerchuk's Wine Library TV today. Vaynerchuk gives him some good-natured shit because Lapp doesn't drink (the first guest to come on and not drink with him) and because Lapp likes the Miami Dolphins (Vaynerchuk is a HUGE Jets fan.) Vaynerchuk tastes three wines he thinks might go well with pizza: 2008 Shaya Rueda: A white. He likes. Reminds him of Capri Sun. 2007 Il Maniaco Montepulciano D'abruzzo: A red. Whoa. He HATES this one. Makes me wonder why he sells it... More

Individual-Size, Slice-Accompanying Pizza Wine in Greenpoint

newyorkshitty.com Miss Heather of the blog newyorkshitty.com finds Pizza Wine at a Greenpoint liquor store. It's a small 375 ml bottle of wine that claims to have been crafted specifically for pizza. At $3 a bottle (even with tax included) this isn't really much of a bargain. If one bottle is designed to accompany two slices, I'd guesstimate it would take five bottles to match a ten-slice pie. That totals to $15. For that kind of money, you can buy a couple six packs of decent beer. Ten-slice pie? Where is Miss Heather getting a ten-slice pie? Note: A... More

Openings: Mitchel London Pizza

From Strongbuzz [via Eater]: Their new Hell’s Kitchen shop is located right next to Burgers and Cupcakes and serves a selection of ten hot and bubbly wood-burning oven pies. The Provençal gets topped with fresh mozzarella, gruyere cheese, tomato sauce, black olives and herbs de provence ($7.95/$13.95), while the Romana will score you hot sausage and roasted peppers on a gooey fresh mozzarella and tomato base ($9.95/$16.95). London has been making pizza at the Fairway Cafe for a while now, so we'd imagine that his pies at Mitchel London Pizza won't be much different from those. And, if you want... More

The Wine Is Fine at Una Pizza Napoletana—And the Pizza, Too

New York Times wine columnist Eric Asimov takes his two sons to Una Pizza Napoletana in NYC and pronounces both the wine and the pizza A-OK. Of their kind (traditional Neapolitan–style) Anthony Mangieri's pies are as good as you can get in New York City. People carp about the price (more than $20 for an individual pie), but the fact is that Mr. Mangieri is slavishly devoted to each and every pie that comes out of his oven, and his devotion results in an ethereally light and tangy individual pie. His last-minute Sicilian sea salt shake is a stroke of... More
