Post Passover Pizza at Pizzeria Vetri
Passover is over and its time to carb up. I am incorporating something breadlike into every meal this week. Pizzeria Vetri opened its 2nd Philly location on Chancellor Street last summer. On my first visit to the original, Art Museum location, I liked the prosciutto slice of the day but was not overwhelmed with joy over the Margherita pie. The menu is the same at both locations (and the one in Austin, TX) and I returned to try a different carb pie.
The meat slice of the day included ricotta and fancy ham on the thick, crunchy, airy crust, I liked the sprinkle of pepper to give it a kick. It worked nicely with the spicy thai chili Ballas point beer on draft.
This time, the pizza pie I went for- the pepperoni pie, is something I can get behind. We got the wood fired oven crust, the fancy mozz, but it was the tide pool of spicy meat oil dotted with crisped, curled cornered pepperoni that made this pie stand out. The smaller sized pie ($18), plus the slice of the day was enough lunch for 2.
