The Rapture, Roberta's Style
At Madison Square Eats last week, I finally tried a pizza from Roberta's. The guys behind the Bushwick pizzeria brought a mobile wood-fire oven to the pop-up food court and were making a few of their specialty pies on the spot. I went with The Rapture: mozzarella, kale, spring garlic, lemon and pecorino, the lightest of the bunch. I loved the crispy kale (something I've been adding raw to smoothies and salads a lot lately), but thought there were a few too many charred spots on the chewy crust. The Bee Sting—mozzarella, tomato, spicy soppressata and honey—was another contender and I hear the sweet and salty combination is awesome. Since the actual pizzeria is much closer to me than Manhattan's Worth Square, I need to finally plan a trip there this summer.
