Tony's Pizza Napoletana

Pin It Now!
A little freaked out that I possibly wouldn't get one of the 73 award winning pizzas made fresh daily, but on a gorgeous weekend day Tony's was hardly busy at opening.  Tony's menu is a pizza connoisseur's dream come true.  Different pizzas made with different ovens (gas, electric, wood fired), different temperatures (550 to 1000 degrees), different toppings, and different crust.

The complimentary foccacia was soft and fluffy and hard to resist filling up on.
Three dipping sauces for the foccacia bread, but I found that they were too sweet and it was better without.

 Only 25 of these giant meatballs made daily with 3 types to choose from:  marinara, sea salted burrata, and wild mushroom, pancetta, robiola.  With a blend of veal, pork, and beef, this meatball was flavorful and juicy right down to the core.  Possibly also one of the best marinara sauces I've ever tasted.  It was the perfect balance of sweetness and spicy without overpowering the meatball.  Good to the last drop, no marinara was left in the dish.

As if eating bone marrow wasn't tedious enough!  The fire roasted bone marrow coppa fondue suggested eating method was adding the bone marrow to the small toasted breads, then adding a slice of coppa, and then dipping into the fondue.
Toasted bread, pieces of apples, and slices of coppa for dipping into the fondue.

 Cheese fondue for dipping.

The finished product!  It took a little bit of work to get a couple pieces going, but after that I found that I preferred eating it without the cheese fondue.

 Tony's world pizza cup winner in Napales, Italy with a limit 73 per day.  The dough is mixed by hand usign San Felice flour then heated in a 900 degree wood fired oven.  Its topped with San Marzano tomatoes, sea salt, and mozzarella fior di latte, fresh basil, and extra virgin olive oil.  Similar to pizzas I had in Southern Italy with a slightly chewier and fluffier crust.  The flavor is well balanced, simple,  and light tasting.  Even though this pizza is delicious, I still prefer Delfina's Margarita pizza with a slightly crispier crust.
