Emma's Rant

bakerboyz | | Oct 19, 2007 06:21 AM

I should preface my remarks to say that I have never eaten at the "newer" version of Emma's Pizzeria; that being said, I was watching Chronicle last night and they had a special on best "cheap eats" and Emma's was highlighted. The show mentioned the paper thin crust and how the chef/pizza maker learned his trade from Todd English. I was a huge fan of the original Emma's when Emma worked the counter and her husband made the pizza. I loved their sauce, fresh ingredients and Emma's grittiness (charming in a funny sort of way), but most of all, I loved their thin crust with burnt edges. It was sad to hear that the new Emma's is cooking a crust learned from Todd English rather than that of Emma's husband. The bottom line is that I miss the "original" and I know I probably shouldn't be commenting without having tried the "newer" version and I apologize for that. I have actually asked on this board for someone to compare the original to the newer version but I have never gotten a response.
