Sneak Review: Racks Italian Kitchen
Smoked mozzarella, prosciutto, spinach pie
Pizza isn't the official headliner, but it surely steals the show. There are four choices each of vaguely oval-shaped red-sauced or white-cheesed pies. The most basic version gets topped with tomato sauce, fiore di latte and Reggiano cheeses, olive oil, basil, and little crackles of sea salt. The dough is baked in a 600-degree hearth, resulting in a crisp, lightly blistered crust that's slightly puffed around the edges. The same characteristics defined the base of a white pie lusty with smoked mozzarella and Reggiano cheeses embedded with spinach and delicate wisps of prosciutto.
