Sometimes it’s Better Not to Mess with the Best: Motorino vs. Me

One of my favorite pizza restaurants in New York is Motorino on East 12th Street. Last night, after a trip to Williams-Sonoma to buy a pizza stone, my bf and I tried to make the restaurant’s signature Brussels sprouts and pancetta pizza at home. We bought ready made dough from Whole Foods, kneaded it into a circle (ok… a slightly lopsided, oblong circle), brushed it with olive oil, and topped it with shredded mozzarella, pecorino, raw Brussels sprouts leaves, sliced garlic, and cooked pancetta. The result was a yummy but sad version of our favorite. Moral of the story: nothing beats Motorino’s perfectly charred Brussels sprouts and pancetta concoction.
