My New Favorite Pizza

A new top 5 contender. Forget all the new neopolitan style places. Co., Keste, Una Pizza Napoletana, etc., etc. Meh! I am officially changing my top 10 pizza ranking to include Pizzeria Veloce. Being a baker doesn't make a great pizzaiola, but knowing about Italian meat sure does. Sarah Jenkins, most recently of Porchetta fame, recreates my childhood memories of John's of Bleecker Street's Platonic chunks of ground fennel sausage and garlic pizza while fitting a round pie into a square pan reminiscent of Adrienne's pizza bar but better. Formerly Solex Wine Bar, now Pizzeria Veloce. Four gorgeous rectangular slices will feed 2 or 3 easily. I knocked off the whole thing myself.
