Finally made it to Pizza Ortica

After reading such completely contradictory comments for so long regarding the Pizza Ortica experience, Im glad I finally had the chance to try it for myself. Im happy to report that the pizzas we had were delicious. 3 out of the 4 crusts were excellent; slightly crispy on the outside and a bit chewy inside, well-charred and bubbled and airy. The second of the pies, the salsiccia and the one i most looked forward to sinking my teeth into, let us down with an under cooked crust. Mind you, at these heats it probably amounted to 45 seconds in the WFO but thats obviously crucial. The cornicione was nicely charred but a blacked bubble may have convinced the youthful pizzaiolo that it was ready. It wasnt but the fennel sausage made it tasty nonetheless. Overall, though I understand that sometimes the dough can cause unexpected problems and a pie person might pull out a pie a bit too soon or too late, i cant understand how anyone wouldnt enjoy Pizza Ortica's pies....Go figure.
