Calzone-Garlic Knot Pizza: Pizza or Calzone? || Really Dough?

  • Published on Jul 22, 2019
  • After a lengthy conversation with the mechanic about pizza, the tire is back on Scott’s pizza-mobile and now, Mark is really ready to get back on the road. And who could blame him? He’s only had pizza to eat for the last 24 hours and he has to get back to his restaurant! But that doesn’t stop Scott from suggesting they try to hit one more pizzeria on his list before going back to Lucali. The pair stop at Joe’s Rotisseria in New Jersey to try Chef Joe Brignoni’s calzone-garlic knot pizza hybrid. Will Mark deem this franken-pizza a pizza? Will Mark and Scott ever make it back to Brooklyn?
    What makes a pizza, a pizza? Lucali owner and old-school Brooklyn pizzaiolo Mark Iacono has a strict pizza formula: sauce, cheese, and dough. That’s it. But renowned pizza enthusiast Scott Wiener believes that the beauty of the slice comes from its creative customizability; even if it’s topped with cheeseburgers or constructed with paella. Scott travels all over America to spotlight the country’s most unique pies and make a case for whether these new customizations can, in fact, still be considered a pizza. This time, he’s taking Mark along for the ride on an East Coast road trip to try the craziest concoctions claiming to be pizza... but are they really dough?

      @Hugo Vinicius yeah, I wouldn't give it a thumbs down because it's changing in a direction I dilike. Most people feel the same I figured.
      The real question is how many views compared to thumbs up? What percent actually liked the video enough to push an icon?

      @Hugo Vinicius maybe, I started watching cause it was about pizza. If I want some fake drama I'll go watch an actual drama show.

    Proprietary my ass, you can copyright the process of putting the pizza and calzone but you can’t copyright the design cause anything different to an ingredient wont be enforceable

    This show is so unique in its actual-food-series-but-also-scripted-reality-show-but-also-just-a-comedy thing, using real people who are apparently incredibly good actors and a naively absurd plot that's really totally unnecessary but just adds to the total goofness of it all. There's actual food discovery and review-type stuff, and Scott and Mark are really who they are, and are really funny. None of it feels tacked on, somehow, and that's just a credit to the show's writers...AND editors. Good lord, this is edited well. It's all so natural, and naturally funny. It could easily slip into corny and unwatchable, but it never even comes close. A lot of that is just how naturally charismatic Scott and Mark are on their own, and how well they odd-couple when they're together. I love this show. It's simple, unassuming, and so seamlessly well done that I feel privileged to be watching it!

    Mark's great, so knowledgeable and insightful. It's clear he knows pizza as a true artisan should. Scott's useless though. Mark needs his own show.

    Scott needs to get the message. Thank goodness Mark keeps it interesting and real or Scott’s blabbering would be enough to keep me from this series.

    It's pronounced with ' calzoné ' not 'cal zone'. ;) It's Italian. Obviusly no accent on the 'e' but you pronounce the 'e'.

    I wonder if this guy is serious on the patent pending. I've seen numerous places that have done this with a whole pizza. 1/3 is a calzone and the rest is a pizza.

  • Dylan Parramore-Stedman

    would be nice if it was a little less staged. the best parts are when they are just talking real.
