The Sottaceto pizza is a great choice, though you probably can’t go wrong on Ammazza’s menu. For meat eaters suspicious of a vegan pie, this one is highly satisfying, thanks to its hearty, savory toppings, which include a rich combination of artichokes, olives and mushrooms. The cashew-based cheese provides a bit of the fatty indulgence that makes pizza so addictive, but it doesn’t take over the show.
As for Ammazza’s wonderful crust, it is textbook for a Neapolitan-style pizza: crunchy and charred on the bottom and exterior, while the inside is airy, yet springy, and substantial. It’s the type of pizza crust that serves as a testament to the magic of gluten.
