Champagne Grape Pizza at Grandaisy
Have really been enjoying the season's speciality "pizza" from Grandaisy on the UWS lately. It has a superbly chewy crust and is covered with fresh champagne grapes, fennel seeds and a drizzle of olive oil. I know it sounds kind of funcky, but it really is incredible. Cut into little slics and served with some cheese its an exceptional app with drinks. My current favorite yum. The signs say its going to have a limited run based on availability of the grapes. It also has a special Italien name which I've forgotten and I think its tied to an Italien festival/holiday. Anyway, I highly recommend checking this out while it lasts.
Surprised this hasn't been posted about yet - or if it has I missed it and apologies to all.
Its back! Had my first (and second) slice yesterday. Still unbeleiveable. Proper name is schiacciata d'uva (see link below for info and photo). Amazing with a hunk of blue cheese and a glass of port for dessert. Strongly recommend all to try if you can hit a Grandaisy easily. The one on 72nd Street still had plenty around 6 PM yesterday. Its usually around for a month or so during the early fall.
I have been eating it every week. I love the fennel and grape combo and pair it with some Greek yogurt and honey.
