Here are some shots of the best oregano I have been able to find. I had been buying fresh lately, but this stuff seems to taste better even though it has been dried. This is probably because it is actually from Italy. I never like the taste of dry basil, but with oregano it somehow works for me. This stuff blows away penzy's, whole foods, and even the McCormick organic which had been my favorite dry up until now. It cost me $4.00 for a big bag that seems like it will last forever. You only need a little bit. They also had a very similar package of Greek oregano for a dollar less. I picked this up at Salumeria Italiana in Boston where they will do mail order. It is not on their website, but just give them a call if you wan to try it. Their La Regina tomatoes are amazing, also they carry Grande fresh mozzarella, a really amazing buffalo mozzarella, ultra high end oils, a number of different brands of sea salt, and tons of other great pizza goodies. For a limited time they even have five pound bags of Caputo Pizzeria flour.
Lately I have been making very simple tomato or just tomato and buffalo mozzarella pies. The oregano (and a sale on shrimp) got me excited and I made a fancy pie tonight with some really good olive oil, fresh minced garlic, a touch of buffalo Mozzarella, pecorino romano encrusted shrimp, and some perfectly ripe diced cherry tomatoes. It guess it would be shrimp scampi pizza.http://www.salumeriaitaliana.com
