Pizzeria Mozza TONIGHT for my FIRST TIME! (so let's play a game!)

CH – I need you! I just got a reservation for Pizzeria Mozza TONIGHT. While I’ve never been, I’ve been drooling over all your reviews for the past two years or so and now, in my time of need, I’m calling on you for help!

So let’s play a game. EVERYTHING on the menu looks good to me and obviously, I can’t order it all (I wish), so instead, how about you choose for me?

To start: fried squash blossoms, Mozza caprese, OR mussels al forno?

A pizza for me: goat cheese/bacon, clam/garlic, OR squash blossom/burrata?

A pizza for my friend (she has what I like to call “white bread tastebuds”): margarita OR Bianca?

Dessert: butterscotch buddino OR caramel copetta?

Feel free to suggest any other things you think I should try. Thanks in advance! I’ll let you all know how it goes!

  1. Here's how I would do it:

    Starter: Fried Squash Blossoms
    Pizza (for you): Clam
    Pizza (for her): Bianca
    Dessert: Butterscotch Buddino

    Let us know how it goes!

    1. squash blossoms
      you: clam
      her: margarita
      dessert: buddino

      1. ate there recently and the squash blossoms are seriously to die for. but so is the fresh burrata. both are so delicious i would probably forego one pizza (if i had to!) for an additional antipasti on my next trip.
        our table ordered the fennel sausage, guanciale and fresh egg, some sort of meaty thing with spicy peppers and the squash blossom pizzas. they were all good in their own ways but i wouldn't say any of them were must-have items, aside from the unbelievably delicious crust.

        i also have to second the recommendation of the budino.

        1. I will always recommend the Clam pie. Always! I wish I had two right now.

          1. Squash Blossoms
            Goat Cheese Bacon -- TDF -- I'm not a huge clam pizza person

              I second this entire menu, as I'm not a huge clam fan either, but I'm sure if you like clams then that is a great pie.

              I love, love, LOVE the Bianca.

              Regardless, you HAVE to get the Budino. I would marry it if I could! ;-)
