Please excuse my ignorance, but I've heard a little bit about Sicilian Oregano for Pizza, but I don't really know much about it.
I'm curious because of a quote I read by Chris Bianco about his pizza. He said,
“There’s no mystery to my pizza. Sicilian oregano, organic flour, San Marzano tomatoes, purified water, mozzarella I learned to make at Mike’s Deli in the Bronx, sea salt, fresh yeast cake, and a little bit of yesterday’s dough. In the end great pizza, like anything else, is all about balance. It’s that simple.”
My first question is where do you get sicilian oregano? Is that something that Chris could grow in Phoenix or get from the Farmer's Market, or is it something that you would have to ship in from somewhere else. Also, does anyone know where he uses it on his pizza. My first thought was that he puts it in his sauce, but when I ate there, I didn't recognize any oregano in his sauce. I could be wrong though. I know he has a marinara pizza that has oregano on it, so maybe that's where he uses it. Anybody know for sure.
Has anyone ever used Sicilian Oregano on a pizza? If so, how'd it taste and how did you use it? I'm just curious because I don't really know much about it, but if Bianco uses it, it might be worth trying out and learning about. Thanks for any help.
