With Neapolitan pizza, the crust is everything. And the pizza wranglers at Adriatic never stop fiddling with it. They keep opening the oven and turning the pizza every which way, even switching ovens, which are kept at different temperatures. If you've been suffering from a vegetable deficit, the capriciosa is a pie with abundant artichoke hearts, mushrooms, eggplant, and tomatoes;the astonishing thing being that all these ingredients are fresh, not canned or frozen. The eggplant is cut lengthwise into razor-thin slices, which crisp on the top and remain moist on the bottom. If you want to tear the roof off your mouth, go for the garlic special, made with fresh basil and a near-fatal dose of garlic. Yum!
