Expatriate Brooklyn in Durham North Carolina
« on: July 10, 2012, 01:59:29 PM »
Hi:

I came across this website when I did a search for a recipe to match L&B's Spumoni Gardens.

We can get decent NY Style pizza here but after seeing some pictures of people's L&B clones I'm dying of hunger.  I've never made pizza from scratch before, hey I lived in Brooklyn for over 40 years, why would I need to :)  I'm hoping to learn from the experts here.  If I could learn to make a pie that's even close to L&B.... OK, I'm dreaming, but it's a great dream.

On a personal note, I have a wonderful wife and an adorable 18 month old toddler, who I can't wait to take to Bensonhurst.  I'm also a board game designer, but right now I'm just plain hungry.

Hi Boomer, welcome to the obsession of the rest of your life, er, I mean "the forum". 

Good luck with your quest: remember the mantra:

Learn, Experiment, Share!
I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

Boomer, welcome.

If you put the work in, I think you should be able to nail an L&B pie.

Getting the right cheese could be a bit tricky.

Could you share some of these 'decent NY style pizza' places with us? I'm always curious about good slices outside of the NY area (there tend to be so few).

That would be great :) I'll keep you posted.

My 2 favorite places down here are Dominic's 5911 Poyner Village Parkway #105, Raleigh, NC
and Randy's 1720 Guess Road in Durham.

Note about Randy's, don't order the garlic knots they are awful.
