Re:2010 Roadfood Disappointments of the Year
With Margherita DOC pizzas from Naples, Italy fresh in my mind I am now on a pursuit of same throughout the United States. I've found some very agreeable and comparable ones at Punch Pizza in Wayzata, MN and RedRocks Pizza in Old Town Alexandria, VA. But I tried the version presented at California Pizza Kitchen (Fairfax, VA in this case) and found it terrible by comparison. It was edible and if I weren't making comparisons the subtle differences might have passed right over my head. I'm finding this a good way to make accurate comparisons in sticking to one recognized style of pizza. Of course some places don't even have anything comparable.
