Is it pizza rustica season yet?

Anyone know if Leo's is selling them yet?

  1. Lisa and I have talked about a place in Whitestone called Strawberry Farms on Willets Pt. Blvd. and 150th Street.
    It is a pretty decent fruit and vege market with an Italian deli operating in the back that makes the best fresh Mozzarella I have ever eaten. ( Imported buffalo mozzarella included! )
    I was there this weekend and noticed two huge loaves of the rustica on top of the counter. The line was too long and I was in a rush so I didn't get a chance to ask for a little slice to taste.Looked extremely interesting!

    1. John,

      Does this muzzi compare to Leo's? Have you ever had Leo's? I will definitely make it my business to check out--thanks
      who's lisa?

        Never had Leo's. But if you can get over to Whitestone make sure you also try thr Mozzarella there.
        Lisa is a long time poster from Whitestone now known as ZenFoodist.

            Durso's on Utopia Pkwy @ Crocheron Ave. is also a great resource for fresh "muzzi" in our neighborhood. Excellent raviolis and fresh pasta.

          2. I thought this was an Easter food. During that season, the best can be found in Manhattan at DiPalo. I buy a dozen and freeze them so I can enjoy all year round.

            1. it is an easter thing--but I can still try...
