I needed some more dough trays so I reached out for my favorite tray maker Mike Madan of Madan Plastics. He makes the artisan trays that fit in a starndard fridge and full size trays for all of Papa Johns and Dominos 1000's a week ! Anyway he is also a pizza nut like me so we agreed to Meet at A Pizz in Montclair for some Neapolitan Pizza ( no I never get enough! ) Niether one of us had ever been. The Place is beautiful very open and airy and Just right size and space. The cornerstone Staphano Ferarro Oven greets your eyes as you walk in. Very comfortable and yes GREAT pizza! The owner Chris came out because he heard I was taking a few pics and poking around. Seemed a bit concrened He said someone had recently copied his resturant exactly and people are allways stealing ideas and such. He told us not to put pics on web... but when he saw the pics I was showing Micheal of Flirting with Fire
and the I phone library of pics Mike keeps from his pizza journeys, cHRIS realized we were no harm, and thE fun began. He even made our pizza for us! Then we got into the Pizza talk ..... by the end of our lunch Mike was showing him the Artisan size dough trays from Dough Mate (which he already uses the full size) and I am going to get him some GI tools, Christipher Called me later in the day we already spoke on the phone about doing some mobile events and BIG festivals together with my mobile his name of course this fall. How cool! Great guy and very Passionate about Pizza. There was talk of opening in Bergen county if he can find a space??? You never know what any given day will bring
And as I have said I am still a firm beiliever that great pizza, brings people together!
Oh yeah The pizza- By the way This place is Fully VPN certified as well. #355
It was top notch Not 100% caputo but very close, and only becuase the Jerseyites still just dont get the whole neapolitan thing
#1 the basic milestone for me the classic Margherita was wonderful light and soft crispy smallish coricione, Nice fresh tomatoes and homemade Mozz as well.
#2 blew me away ! Fresh Bufalo Mozz., Smoked Mozz. , Yellow cherry tomatoes, arrugula and the kicker, a swirl of Honey ! I have never had this combo but Man great stuff. Deliciouso!
Really looking forward to the future potential of this new relationship
and yes I'll be back!
