I had heard that Rosario’s Pizzeria in South Philly had Mexican pizzas. Hawk and Thad enjoyed the Al Pastor pizza there. Some other friends of mine let me know Rosario’s was a good spot for delivery. So to be lazy, I placed my order. Wanting to try a pizza that hadn’t already been tested out by my fellow blog pals, I chose the mole topped pizza pie.
Yes, mole, typically found on enchiladas was going to be on my pizza along with chicken, red onions and mozz ($9). And to get even crazier with it, I added chorizo. I enjoyed the toppings, I am super glad I added the chorizo for some extra spice and fattiness. Having a spicy-sweet mole sauce works pretty well as a tomato sauce substitute. The crust was the least satisfying part, it was somewhat soggy.
I also tried a giant al pastor cemita. Besides the pork and pineapple mixture, the sandwich contained avocado, oaxaca cheese, black beans, and chipotle. Though I appreciated the size of the sandwich, as well as the generous amount of meat, cheese, and avocado, the pork was too gristly for me.
Additionally, though the pork itself had a nice flavor in between all the gristle, I learned why I felt something was off-putting in the flavor) of this cemita, and now that I think about it, any cemita I have had. Cemitas contain papalo, a sort of cousin to cilantro, that is much more bitter. Not for me, now I know.
