in the mood for white pizza?
Sunday, September 26
I don't know how come I have been eating so much pizzzzzzzza lately (well I do know, sadly). This is a piece of pizza from Cafe Pesto, the most well-known and touristy Hawaiian-Italian restaurant in town, where we dined last night. I ordered Ahi gumbo (in which I couldn't spot ahi, but it was tasty most importantly) and a 9" pizza with my choice of toppings; I asked crab and Maui sweet onion, without pizza sauce, hence making Pizza Bianca, or white pizza. Back in the day when I was working for a Tokyo Italian restaurant and making pizza there, I always liked pizza bianca with mozzarella and pecorino, topped with a bit of anchovy fillet or prosciutto di Parma, circumstances permitting. Crab-onion white pizza turned out delicious, too, especially seasoned with Hawaiian red sea salt. Yum.
