As summer rolls in, Pitfire Artisan Pizza rolls out its new seasonal menu, peppered with farmers market favorites. I took an immediate liking to the Eggplant Parmesan Pizza; though the name evokes warm, heavy comfort food, Pitfire takes a lighter approach to the hefty nightshade. At the base of the pie are translucent sheets of grilled eggplant, aubergine skin peeking out from beneath the blanket of blistered cheese and sweet cherry tomatoes. Executive Chef Andrew Lakin—who recently joined the Pitfire team after stints at The W Westwood and Gjelina—walks us though the making of this summery pie.
