Let me start out with a disclaimer. I am from New York, and any attempts to try to emulate my beloved New York pizza is, in my opinion, heresy. Dante pizzeria was the target of our Epicurean desire tonight. We were inspired by a link from Zagat which presented the best 50 pizzerias the 50 states. As we were near Omaha, Nebraska, we decided to try this pizzeria which was named by Zagat. We drove about 50 miles round-trip. Would the pizza be worth the effort?
For almost $18, we were immediately disappointed by the size and weight of this pizza. It was flimsy. It barely satisfied the three of us; in fact we had to supplement our meal with leftover spareribs that we had had the previous night in Kansas City. No pizza should leave me hungry. This is a fact that was specially punctuated by the cost of the pizza. Who does Dante think they are? Are they in the middle of Wall Street or the Bronx in New York City? I don't think so.
That being said, my disclaimer in this process of review must be made. Yes, NJ my Eidetic grow up in the New York metropolitan area. That being said, however, I am open to experiencing pieces from different locations. This particular brand did not disappoint, but it still falls short of a classic pizza taste.
Let me tell you why. The crust was overly delicate. It was almost as if the pizza were prepared on a layer of phyllo dough. This is not the consistency that crust should have. It was not offensive, but it was not worthy of the highest level of praise.
So, enough of beating up this pizza for its tiny size and big price. What they put on the pizza was downright delicious. We ordered a pie with onions, peppers, and sausage. The sausage was appropriately delicious. The peppers were fresh and tasty. The onions appeared to have been sautéed before you put on the pizza. Although the cheese and sauce were both a little scans, overall the presentation and taste of the pizza was outstanding.
That being said, the authors of this recipe still have some areas of opportunity to create a dish which is wholesomely satisfying and economically worthwhile to purchase. They are on to a great start with the taste of the pizza, but until they can feed two adults and one child without them having to resort to a half rack of ribs from the previous nights leftovers, the highest level of rating will have to be withheld.
