Trapizzino: Sandwich or Pizza? || Really Dough?

  • Published on Mar 25, 2019
  • Mark Iacono is well known for his crispy pizza at his famed Brooklyn pizzeria. He has lines out the door before the restaurant opens for service every day of the week. But few people know that he also makes some very tasty meatballs. And even fewer people know you can order the meatballs on pizza. So on this week’s episode, Scott ventures to the Lower East Side to taste a meatball trapizzino with Stefano Callegari at Trapizzino. He may even bring a trapizzino back for Mark to try. But will this trapizzino push Mark too far? Does Scott even think this is pizza? Will Mark kick Scott out?
    Pizza is one of the most customizable foods in history. Tomato sauce, white sauce, artichoke cream sauce, broccoli, M&M’s, pineapple, edible 24K gold -- a pizza can be anything your heart desires. But should it? Renowned pizza nerd Scott Wiener is challenging the idea that pizza can be anything. He’s traveling all over America, spotlighting these Frankenstein pizzas and trying to make a case for whether these new customizations can, in fact, still be considered a pizza. In the end, Wiener takes these pizzas to Lucali to pass final judgment from the purist of all pizza purists, Mark Iacono, where he will either declare each slice “PIZZA!” or ask with complete disgust, “Really, dough?”

    Luty Angeles Most people are confused when we (italians) talk about Neapolitan's pizza and other regions pizza.. In America (and in the rest of the world, pretty much) Naples's pizza is known as the only we made in Italy; That is incorrect: You have to understand that Italy is a country that was divided until 1862.. Divided also culturally. So in Rome there's a concept of how you make/and call a pizza (Traditionally speaking, the pita):
    It's more crunchy and it's thin. Also, in Rome is quite common to eat pizza bianca (without anything on) ; that is what in Naples people would call "focaccia", because the dough is taller than usuaI. It's not bread, it's still pizza. What changes is the way you call it, and sometimes even the way you make it. So, The Trapizzino is a fold made out of pizza. 😉
