Puzo's Pizzeria & Restorante, Fairfield, NJ

Puzo's Pizzeria on Urbanspoon

Where: Puzo's Pizzeria & Restorante, Fairfield, NJ
What: The Great Grandma Pie
Build: Tomato sauce, Fresh Mozzarella (along with low moisture Mozz), spices, Peppadew Peppers.
Comment: No, you do not have to travel to New York City to get a really great pizza.
I'm going to start by defining what a Peppadew pepper is because it represents the "magic" ingredient in the Great Grandma Pie.

 Here is the WiKi definition...


History

This type of piquante pepper was first discovered in early 1993[1] and introduced to market later that same decade. The name is derived from "Pepper" and "dew".
Although the pepper is sometimes described as a cross between a pepper and a tomato, this description is not botanically accurate, and refers only to the resemblance in color and size between Peppadew and cherry tomatoes.
Applications have been made by the various owners of the brand to secure international breeders right by application to the UPOV.[2][3]
In 2000 the South African mushroom producer, Denny Mushrooms, acquired the Peppadew brand and business.[4][5] Denny has in turn since been acquired by AVI.[6]

[edit]Processing

The fruit is processed for removal of the seeds and reduction of the heat of the pepper to more pleasant levels. It is then pickled and bottled.

[edit]Flavour

The flavour of the Peppadew fruit is sweet, with mild heat of around 1,177 on the Scoville scale.[1


With that said, these peppers have to be tasted to be appreciated. They are a perfect blend of acidity and sweetness with a hint of heat, and the balance Puzo's capture's in this pie is absolute perfection. This is without a doubt my new favorite Pizza. Not much more to say about this, the pie is cooked perfectly, crisp homemade crust, fresh tomato's and a fantastic blend of cheeses. Check out my photos of Puzo's homemade goodness and tell me you're not hungry for one...  This is a solid 10/10. Thank you Great Grandma.
