Pizza aglio ed olio
Anyone ever had pizza this way? It's a very simple pie wherein the crust is liberally brushed (painted) with good olive oil(olio), sprinkled with a generous layer of diced fresh garlic (aglio), dusted with some nice fresh grated pecorino romano or parmigiano reggiano (or both), then baked.
It's heavenly, and a nice break from the typical tomato sugo and mozzarella pie. I was introduced to this by the proprietor of a Chicago style dog, Ital beef and pizza restaurant in So Cal years ago. The pie wasn't on the menu. She made it only for herself and her straight off the boat charming Italian parents, who ate there 3 or 4 times a week.
Her Dad wore a green, white and red ball cap with the inscription "Non mi rompere i coglioni." Scamp.
