A&S Pork Store (274 5TH Ave) makes the best Cow’s Milk (fiore di latte) Mozzarella in all of NYC. There I said it! Tepid, moist, springy, slightly salty with a hint of tang! I set out to document my boy Sal as he made his first batch of the day.
Dough, Crushed Whole Peeled Canned Tomatoes (not tomato sauce!), Mozzarella, finely grated Parmesano Reggiano, fresh Basil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I bought the dough from my favorite neighborhood Italiano Americano Pizzeria, Pino’s. Of course I could have made it, but it was a weeknight and I figured if I let it rise an additional 4 hrs it would reach its moment. I did just that...
The result took me momentarily back to 6 months obsessing over Pizza in Bella Italia!
