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.

    After he said "Cousins, then best friends, then partners." I had to re-evaluate what he meant...I was like, "Wait...wtf do you mean by "partners"? 'thinking, "Friggin' weirdos". lol

    This is literally the opposite of what kind of pizza I like (not a brick of cheese on top, not doughy, charred spotting on the top and bottom, a crust, etc).

    Born and raised in Brooklyn 50+ years... the whole sleazeball way they act and talk is how they do in the more touristy areas. People actually talk normal here. They just cater to the tourists cause they watched the Godfather or whatever and wanna here someone say spicy meat a ball and ayyyye we're walkin here. People did talk a bit like that in the 70's but even then they were still copying movies from 20 years earlier. It's getting really old if you ask me. Now a days you have to make a conscious effort to talk like a fucking sleaze ball like these faggo's

      Marcella Hazan's sauce is definitely worth looking up. Here it is: cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1015178-marcella-hazans-tomato-sauce
      I've never used it on pizza, but for pasta, it's great and simple, like a lot of Italian cooking, but start with good canned tomatoes (unless you have access to fresh and ripened saucing tomatoes). Of course you have all the San Marzano and San Marzano style tomatoes, but Muir Glen has good ones, as does Red Gold/Red Pack. There's also Escalon 6-in-1 brand, my favorite for sauces, but it's not whole tomatoes, but ground tomatoes already of sauce constancy. My absolute favorite for saucing.
