NYC Best Pizza: L’asso Takes Pizza & Toppings to a New Level

October 23, 2008

When is the last time you ate pizza that made you say “Wow, this is really good?” For the NYC Food Guy, this happened a few weeks back at L’asso on the corner of Mott Street & Kenmare Street.  “The Ace” in Italian, L’asso features wood-fired brick oven pies which strike the perfect balance between thin, airy and crisp while still supporting the weight of the most unique and delicious toppings I’ve encountered in all of New York City.  Read on to find out why L’asso’s pies are a work of art and science and which of the eight pies I tried really stood out…

Special Margherita with pan fried crispy prosciutto, green onions and extra virgin olive oil

Pizza al Tartufo – Portobello pesto, mushrooms, mozzarella, rosemary and truffle oil

Pizza Mela – Mozzarella, Gorgonzola, asparagus, apple, truffle oil
