Adventures of the Onion booty Foodie

Embark on my adventures of travel and food

Want some pizza with that grease?

The first stop on our “appetizer chasing” was Mimi’s, as recommended by Bobby Flay as “the best thing [he] ever ate-childhood favorites.” I have been trying to find good pizza in the US for a long time and was really hoping this was it. I was sorely disappointed. The crust was crispy but bland, the cheese tasted like plastic, the sauce was nothing special, and it was uber-greasy. It’s almost impossible to have a “bad” pizza but this was nowhere near the best I’ve ever had. The one good point I would have to say is that the slice is huge, a typical New York street slice, more bang for your buck.

It really does look greasy. But If that isn’t the best you have had, what is?

I don’t necessarily have a number 1 favorite but I can describe what I do enjoy. I love a crust that is nicely browned and crisp but still moist and chewy on the inside. Like a cheese that’s nice and gooey but fresh and not overly greasy. Toppings are a matter of preference, the way to tell a good pizza is to have it plain, cheese and sauce only. For the sauce, I can be a little picky. I prefer a sauce that is not very thick with little to no pieces that stick in your teeth. I always enjoyed the sauce on a Mike’s pizza, it’s a little bit sweet. I also enjoy the crust at Chez Dany, which I believe has some honey in it. Also they top your pizza with olive oil, parmesan, and chilli flakes. It’s delicious
