Mark: you like Rosso's pizza? I went there last family visit and loved everything else there (appetizers, salads) but I found the pizza actually inedible. I will admit to being picky about pizza, would rather eat a good salad than a bad pizza. My mother loved it and ate the entire pizza except the one bite I took. If you like it too, I'm not sure where my disconnect comes in. I mainly eat Neapolitan style but can definitely appreciate good NY or NY-elite/hybrid/whatever, or any kind of artisan WF pizza. To me, Rosso served a dry, flavorless flat crust with can-tasting sauce and lackluster cheese. The photos you've posted make your pizza look 1000x more appealing than Rosso's (granted they are very different styles).
