Dining in LA-My Best Bite of the Week: Garlic & Oil pizza
Recently I noticed a new addition on the menu: Aglio Olio made with garlic, mozzarella and fontina cheese. In Italian, Aglio Olio means garlic and oil. You may have heard of a popular pasta dish, Spaghetti Aglio Olio. This is the first time I’ve seen it in pizza form. When we finally ordered it on a recent tour, we were in for a very happy surprise. The scent of garlic wafted out the minute we opened the box, but the flavor of garlic was not overwhelming. The olive oil and cheese combination made for a very rich and buttery bite, but one that was well received by the guests and by ME. I was sure to order enough so that I could have a piece but as usual my hands and mouth were full and I did not get a picture. But I’m still thinking about the deliciousness of that Aglio Olio pizza and for that reason am declaring it my best bite of the week!
