cold pizza for breakfast

Cynthia | Dec 9, 2004 02:48 PM

One slice remained from last night’s pizza; best cold for breakfast - crust was soft and chewy, rich with concentrated flavors as only cold morning pizza can be.

Last night it was Little Star Pizza’s Special, $21 large; a thin crust that was crisp and blistered, just right with ricotta, gorgonzola, shallots, garlic, and ham that bubbled golden soft and creamy. Along with a glass of Blue Paddle Pilsner lager, a pale golden mildly hoppy brew $4; and a glass of Chateau de Lascaux $5, well-structured red with good fruit; a Mixed salad of greens, cherry tomatoes, chopped walnuts, red onions and gorgonzola cheese, $4 small; and a Creme Brulee for dessert, $4, a good sweet vanilla custard with a nice crackly carmelized sugar crust. Not bad feeding on a dark rainy night.

Little Star opened its door just three weeks ago, transforming its space with paint, new furnishings, and a juke box beyond compare. The spare decor brings Pottery Barn design elements to our funky neighborhood with walls painted white-charcoal grey-dusky midnight blue, matching flared-back wooden chairs and black-topped tables with window framed art. It’s a clean look and works wonders with the space. There’s a bar midway along the right wall as you enter the door and a comfy little niche in the front window with low seating for two. Service is friendly PIB. Appetizers $6/$7. Deep Dish Specialty Pizzas small 9”/large 12” $10/$21 range. Thin Crust Specialty Pizzas small 12”, large 16” $11/$21 range.
