I can't say that it came as a surprise that the Bertucci's on Stanhope St. closed down. Over the years it went from average to bad to consistently horrible as the crowd dwindled. But their pizza dough was always very good.
One of my favorite easy dinners was to pick up dough at Bertucci's on the way home to make a pizza in my home oven. No limit on toppings or sauces, and no watching the waiter make faces at some of my more esoteric combinations.
But my dough source is gone! No more home-baked pizzas!
Does anyone know of pizzerias or restaurants in the South End or Back Bay that sells their pizza dough?
I've tried both supermarkets' doughs. Shaws' seems to have absolutely no elasticity and creates strangely chewy pizzas. Whole Foods seems to have frozen dough only, and although it's pretty good it takes much too much planning ahead for what I always see as a spontaneous treat.
