Pizza Making U-Turn Back To Sturdy Square Shape In 2017

No matter how you slice it, pizza is one of the most satisfying foods on the planet. Just ask the millions of New York City strong who enjoy getting a slice to go. In Manhattan alone, there are 362 local pizza restaurants, according to an item in the NewYorkDailyNews.

 

Most of these pizza parlors serve up slices from a round pie with thinner crust, because that’s been the longtime tradition. Watch out, folks, because things are about to change in 2017. That’s right; NYC is turning square, but in a grande way.

 

Don’t be afraid of the dimensions, ladies and gentlemen. The square slice will feature thicker dough, heartier toppings and a deeper gastronomical satisfaction.

 

Square pizza is the trendy food item of the new year in New York City. You won’t have to worry about all the good stuff sagging from your slice, because you won’t even have to fold your pie. Square pizza has a sturdy form with nice crispy edges.

 

The culinary landscape has begun to change in the pizza world, taking us all back to our youth, when square masterpieces full of molten cheese and sauce were a thing of beauty in school cafeterias.

 

BonAppetit says the trend is on and stretching across the country.

 

In New York City, pizza lovers can go square at eateries like Scarr’s Pizza on Orchard Street, where an 18 inch by 12 inch pizza will run you $26. There is Brooklyn’s Williamsburg Pizza, which offers classic NY slices at $2.50. Some folks prefer the square kale-sausage-and-­Taleggio slice, where vintage meets edgy.

 

Emmy-Squared in Brooklyn also serves it up hot and non-circular. The restaurant is big on Detroit-style pizza, and residents love the crisp square pies with the yummy, springy dough.

 

Go on, America; get square.

 

Pizza Hut’s new Hot Dog Stuffed Pizza

Starting June 18, Pizza Hut is serving their new hot-dog stuffed pizza in the U.S. Pizza Hut’s new pie will offer a crust that doubles as a hot dog. It has been around for eight years but not in the US. It was first offered in South Korea, then the UK and lastly to Canada. Now we can enjoy this new but odd treat. This news release was recently reported at www.grubstreet.com

The Pizza comes with mustard or ketchup dribbled on the crust said Gravity4. Or served as a dipping sauce. The outside stuffed crust is not cheese but hot dogs circling the pie. This may become a big hit with the younger pizza lovers. It is perfect to serve after a ball game or birthday parties.

I will give it a try and I am sure it will be a hit with the kids. I’ll reserve my opinion until after my taste test. If its a hit in other countries it surly will be a hit here.

Bacon! Bacon!

You’ve heard the recent buzz, right? The new information that saturated fats are supposedly now okay for us to eat in some capacity? Click Here. Well, that’s good news, because Little Caesar’s is unveiling what appears to be both a tasty and fat laden new pizza this coming Monday. Can you say bacon? Better say it again! This new pizza will have three-and-a-half linear feet of this stuff wrapped around its crust. So, if you don’t care about whether science currently thinks saturated fat is good or saturated fat is bad but you want to try this greasy meal, you won’t likely mind the 23 grams of fat that each slice also contains. Haidar Barbouti knows that the only down-side for you might be if you really liked Little Caesars’ Soft Pretzel Crust Pepperoni Pizza, which is now being taken off the menu.
