Matzo Pizza for Passover at Pie
Three pies are available made with unleavened dough at Pie.
Pizza-by-the-pound purveyor Pie is offering matzo-based pizzas for Passover. This popular parlor--which won a Voice award for Best Fast Food in 2003--offers lush thin-crust pies in elongated shapes, all displayed on a long marble counter, to be cut at any length at the diner's request.
The matzo pies utilize the same crust chemistry, only without yeast. They are strictly vegetarian, and kept on a separate back counter. Three were available yesterday, including one with chopped fresh tomatoes and lots of garlic, another adorned with slices of eggplant, and a third like a regular slice, with fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce. All were quite tasty, and the crackly crust made the pizzas a unique contribution to the diverse pizza landscape of New York City.
You can get the sample of all three shown above for $6 on the regular pizza sampler plate, with a beverage, which proves to be quite a deal.
