This past Saturday, I had a morning hanging out with my Mom. Part of our afternoon activities [more of which will be detailed in another post] included a late lunch at Fritti, an Italian eatery serving authentic Neopolitan style pizza- so good it's certified. We sat on the outdoor patio that was sheltered by big, red umbrellas [hence the redish hue to the photos I took]. We split our meal, as we almost always do [I love being able to taste a little bit of everything on the table].
We started with the Insalatona, an Italian take on the Cobb salad- made with mixed greens, four cheeses, egg, cotto ham, salame, marinated artichokes and sliced red onions. This was the perfect salad to share and every ingredient was fresh and unfettered with.
After a rather long wait [as I suppose all good things are accustomed to doing], we split the Speck e Rucola pizza, topped with San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, smoked prosciutto and arugula. Simple ingredients, all of which are standards in my Italian inspired kitchen. What truly makes their pizza is the dough. This wasn't a crispy pizza dough, and that crispy crust is certainly missed [I've ordered from here before, and I must say, it's even better reheated in a 500+ degree oven at home, placed on a baking sheet or pizza stone that's been heated in the oven] but the doughy texture makes for a great mouth feel.
Definitely give Fritti a try, if you haven't already.
