What Is Milan-Style Pizza? | Food Skills

  • Published on Mar 26, 2018
  • From Neapolitan and Sicilian to Detroit-style and deep dish, NYC is a wonderland for regional pizza styles. Now, a cheesy, soufflé-like pie from Milan is set to take the five boroughs by storm. Enter: The Big Ragu, the latest slice shop from cousins Francis Garcia and Sal Basille of Artichoke Pizza fame. Using a special, rotating oven, the Big Ragu creates a pie that's crisp on the bottom and perfectly doughy through the center. Serving slices cut into cubes-and enjoyed with a controversial fork-these Staten Island natives are challenging the ways New Yorkers see pizza. Love it or hate it, just remember one thing: At the Big Ragu, the sauce is the boss.

    All the time I’ve been watching this pizza video I think, why they mentioned Italy or Italian place with no reason? This is not similar to a Milan and neither to Sicilian, so please stop it. Just say it’s an American revision of different Italian pizza style. I can’t believe it

    A sicilian slice that's crispy all the way through is overcooked. You want a crispy crust but the dough should be soft like bread in the middle.

      Marc iocano maybe isn't a God but the series revolves around his opinion of pizza. If they've emulated a Milan style pizza, Italians are much more likely to be liking the pizza these guys offer

      Mark Iacono is not the God or the best pizza maker in the world is just a pizza maker, you would probably have to say, I wonder what in Naples, Rome or Sicily or Milan they say about this.

      abdo H 3 months ago

      @gnamorfra of course it's just a stereo type..I think It only sounds Italian if you do not actually speak Italian and just going by the tone..I'm sure not all Italian Americans sound like that..but if you were making a cartoon with Italian American characters from New York..they would sound exactly like these guys..I think they know that and they like it.

    • gnamorfra
      gnamorfra 3 months ago

      @abdo H I know the family Guy episode! That doesn't sound "Italian" to me (I'm a native speaker), it's probably a stereotyped Italian American accent, isn't it? I'm no expert... I'm just curious ahaha
