I found myself waking up in my car in South Laguna beach today.
I dropped off the family at Disneyland and went to Laguna to get some work done for out companies.
I entered into yelp the best lunch in the area. I followed the map to get there, and it was directly behind where my car was parked.
Don’t go here if you want American pizza. This is a very specific gourmet pizza, at least gourmet for this part of the world.
If you were in Naples Italy, this would just be called pizza, but even with that, it has some twists.
There are two types of pizza here, one with red sauce and the other half of the menu has no red sauce.
Where at your typical American pizzeria, no matter what you order, it will taste roughly the same, here the flavor of each pizza is going to be drastically different.
Not every pizza has cheese, and not every pizza has a red sauce.
For me, who loves new unique combinations of flavors, I found something massively enjoyable.
Before I start on that though, let me tell you about the crust.
The crust is slightly charred in a lovely tiled woodfired kiln.
It reminds me of a more chewy baguette. Not the place for someone who is gluten free.
The outer part of the crust is charred where the part near the center is less cooked.
Now the fun pizza combo. The pizza I got has sausage on it that was slices as opposed to the American pizza crumbled sausage. It had mozzarella imported from Italy, and it also had Gorgonzola which was a surprise and wonderful. Then it had nice long leaves of fresh basil.
A simple and perfect little pizza.
