Lardo Pizza At Mozza...What's All the Fuss About?

love2eat | | May 23, 2007 11:19 AM

Over the past few months I've tried the egg, blossom and burrata, margherita, and sausage and fennel pizzas at Mozza and have loved them all. Since the opening, Chowhounders have been raving about the lardo pizza. My last few visits it has been absent from the menu. Yesterday, however, it was on the menu. When it arrived at the table i thought, "Oh, how minimal...that lardo must be a flavor bomb!" You see, this pizza was just the crust, thin slices of lardo, and a sprinkling of rosemary. It basically tasted like pizza crust with extra-rich salty butter (lardo) and rosemary. Which wasn't bad being that I love Mozza pizza crust and rich salty butter isn't bad either but I felt I was missing something. I thought there would be more depth of flavor in the lardo. All in all it felt a bit blah. I'm glad I tried it but am I missing something here?
