Okay, if you have been reading my food blogs for a good period of time you will know we LOVE pizza. Our favorite types are NY style and Neapolitan. I’ve been craving a good Neapolitan pizza for a while and our go to place is usually Midici.
I wanted to spread our wings a bit and check out a pretty popular spot on Yelp-Pizzeria Mozza. We somehow ended up being able to get same night reservations for 2 at 8:45pm on a Saturday night-we called at 8:15pm. I was ecstatic!
We arrived and the place was filled with chatter and cheer! Seriously everyone was super nice and friendly. We got seated quickly and glanced over the menu before being torn on the appetizers.
We opted for the carrots with coriander and dill yogurt topping and fried squash blossoms stuffed with ricotta.
The carrots came out first and were hand down some of the best carrots I have ever had. They were pretty oily, but all the textures created a very satisfying carrot bite. The carrots were soft from roasting, but had great flavor. There were these strips of fried something on top of the pile of carrots, and on top of that this cooling yogurt dill sauce.
I had never had a squash blossom, but these were tasty! The outside was light and crunchy and the inside soft with the ricotta.
For our pizza we were torn between the Margh and the squash blossom. We went with the squash blossom! It was really good, but before I could finish my first slice I hit a wall and could not eat another bite. We boxed up the remaining two slices and I had them for breakfast the very next day.
I really enjoyed the slight bitterness of the squash blossom and the creamy contrast from the ricotta. It was essentially the fried squash blossom dish on a pizza minus being fried.
We had a really great dinner at Pizzeria Mozza and I would recommend checking this place out. It’s fun and friendly and delicious! What more could a girl ask for?
