Sunday night I stopped by Motorino, Chef Mathieu Palombino's East Village outpost of his Brooklyn Neapolitan pizza joint. People have been raving about the pizzas at Motorino, declaring it some of the best in town. After I consumed my entire pie, I would agree; Motorino has great pizza.
I started with an appetizer of succulent and tasty fire roasted mortadella ($7), with a side of mustard.
I then had the Soppressata Piccante ($16) pizza, which came with mozzarella, spicy soppressata, garlic, and oregano. The entire pie was perfect. From a nice sweet and fresh tomato sauce, to wonderful light and crispy crust, it was a terrific pizza pie!
