Nino's Coal Fired Pizza
« on: October 12, 2012, 07:42:51 PM »
We went to Nino's tonight and I thought the pizza was very good! The pic of the whole pie was taken with my cell phone and the slice pics I took once I got home and used a real camera. What do you guys think from the pics? Has anyone else been to Ninos here in NJ?

That looks like a great crust and pie.  I like the way they slice he meatballs.  I think I will borrow that idea next time I put meatballs on my pizza.

Looks very tasty. What was the flavor/texture of the crust like?

The crust was very good...a slight crunch on the outside and a nice pillowy texture on the inside. I have yet to have an authentic Neo pie, but Im thinking this is what it would be like.

Chaz, I'm not knocking it, but this is nothing like Neapolitan pizza. Whereabouts on the shore are you located? I'm pretty sure there's authentic Neapolitan up near Asbury Park.

Chaze said NeO...not NeA.  Please correct me if I don't have this right(I know it sorta gets tossed around quite a bit), but I thought that people are talking about something a 'lil more poofy and char than a NY but not as limp as a NP when they use the word Neo-politan,no? Thanks.

I don't remember anyone using the term "Nea." I'm not saying it never happens, but it's not common. To me Neo = NP = Neapolitan.

Thanks, that what I thought too but even the forum glossary spells it neApolitan and lately I've been seeing it spelled (with the a)at many WFO pizza restaurant and mobile business sites.
I believe I've been seeing the words neO and "nearly-politan" being used to indicate the same type of pizza (similar to the one shown in this post) ?

Neo-NY is the term I was wanting to say(couldn't remember :-[) anyway, I see that combo of words used frequently. I know Nino's is a "coal oven pizza"....but I wouldn't be surprised to see someone call it a Neo-Ny, although that even dark browning of it's crust isn't really what I think of in a Neo-Ny pie(needs more random charring).

You are right bob.  It's New Haven style.  I think of Neo-NY as more of 3 minute ish pie.  Large with non NY traditional toppings, maybe fresh mozz instead of block mozz.  Something like what Bianco's makes is closer to NP but it's still outside of the traditional back time.  But anyways sorry for the derail.  This is suppose to be a review for Nino's.

Ummm, because that's how it's spelled...

It's just not typically abbreviated "Nea."  It's not a conspiracy to confuse you.

Speaking only for myself, I use Neo and NP interchangeably. I would not use Neo to describe "Neo-NY."

I would respectfully disagree with this. It looks more like NY coal oven style to me. I think it looks more like a Grimaldi's, Lombardi's or Totonno's than New Haven.

The heat blisters and fresh mozzarella I see in the pic are both things you usually dont find on new haven style pizza.     This pizza looks to be baked in a hotter oven than most of the new haven style places.      To me it seems similar to anthony's coal fired style pizza.... not really authentic NY coal or neapolitan.  They are probably running some sugar in the dough- baked in a modern coal oven (think earthstone) which tend to run pretty hot.   This is all just a guess from looking at the pie of course.

actually, on second look... there is a lot of top heat on this pic.... maybe it is a site built coal oven.   If so its probably a smaller one to develop that much top heat.

You are right Craig.  I associated New Haven style based on the coal oven, but it is closer to a NY coal than a New Haven pie.  Either way it is not Neapolitan and very far from it.
