Pizza Special - Salvatore

During the winter when root vegetables reign and bright, fresh vegetables are hibernating until the spring, I will generally turn to the larder for inspiration. This is a wonderful place to find cured meats and preserved vegetables that remind me of the bounty of warmer weather passed. In my larder, there are two things that you will find on the Salvatore Pizza.

The first of these is speck. Speck is such a wonderful treat and is in the same family as prosciutto di Parma. Actually, speck and prosciutto both come from the same part of the pig, the back leg, and that is where the similarities end. To make prosciutto is a simple process as all it takes is good pork, salt and a lot of time. Speck is a little more involved, however, as the pork is soaked in brine, rubbed with spices, smoked and then air cured.

The second ingredient, Mama Lil’s Peppers, holds a dear place in my heart since its inspiration came from back in my hometown of Warren, OH. Howard Lev, the founder of Mama Lil’s Peppers, went to one of my rival high schools and we both grew up enjoying Italian-American fare in the same restaurants. One thing that would always, always, always show up at the table was peppers in oil and soft Italian bread. Howard brought both of our childhoods to the table when he started Mama Lil’s 20 years ago.

Which brings me to the Salvatore, this delicious pizza starts out with our pomodoro sauce and then is topped with mozzarella di bufala. Next, I’ve added two of my other favorite ingredients, mushrooms and onions. Before the pizza goes into the oven to be kissed with flame, Mama Lil’s Peppers, basil and pecorino romano find their way on. And, finally, after we have cooked the pizza to perfection, we drape it with the smoky speck.

Come one, come all! Ring in the New Year with the Salvatore!

Authentic Italian Espresso

Attibassi Espresso

Neapolitans are as fiercely passionate about espresso as they are pizza. No meal ends without the digestivo that espresso provides. Espresso soothes the stomach and makes the heart contento. In true Italian tradition, we “pull” our espresso manually from a Victoria Arduino hand operated lever machine. Every cup will give you a complete espresso experience – a full-flavored, robust, yet not bitter, shot of espresso, topped by a thick layer of velvety reddish-brown crema which leaves a sweet lingering aftertaste.
