Mozza - what to orda?

Going to Pizzeria Mozza my second time. It was flat out awesome my first visit. Question, what to order? Last time I had the proscuitto, the date/gorgonzola salad and the Peperonata - burrata pizza. My date had the Funghi misti. I loved everything so much I want to order exactly the same thing, but of course I also want to try more of everything! Any suggestions?

  1. Mozza's chicken liver crostini is great

    1. My favorite items are, in no particular order, the eggplant caponata appetizer, the pane bianco (which is, essentially, the best garlic bread ever), the fennel sausage pizza, the egg/guanciale pizza, and the butterscotch pudding. Really good fresh fruit sorbet too.

        this put me in the mood for mozza tonight..I called for a rez and am #7 in line on the phone...guess biz is still booming.

        *edit..waited forever got to front of line then was disconnected. lame.

      2. marrow al forno. so good.

        1. I concur with the bianco pizza, definitely my fave and the fennel sausage as well. The caprese salad might be my favorite item on the menu. Don't miss that! Also, I never miss the white bean bruschette, it is amazing. You cannot go wrong wtih these dishes. Definitely the butterscotch!!

            1. I can't stop thinking about the meatballs.

              1. Tricolore salad, brussels sprouts, and bianca pizza with fennel sausage (not on the menu - but they'll make it!). Yum yum.

                  Concur on the bianca pizza with added sausage. Our bartender told us this is what all the staff order after hours. It's unbelievable. Also recommend getting the Mussells in white wine/garlic sauce then dipping your crusts in the sauce (because the pizzas can always use more oily, garlicky goodness!). And of course the best dessert ever Butterscotch Budino.

                2. squash blossoms, arancini, fennel sausage pizza (i dream about this one!), bianco pizza, any pizza with burratta on it....ok now im drooling! thank god i have a reservation there for father's day in a couple of weeks!

                  1. goat cheese/bacon pizza

                    meat lovers pizza

                    beets w/horseradish

                    fried squash blossoms


                    1. I'm so excited, I have reservations for tonight (booked 2 weeks ago). I'm thinking of the bianca with fennel sausage and butterscotch budino for sure.

                      1. The brussel sprouts!!! ever since I had them here I have tried at least 10 times to recreate them at home, to no avail. If anyone's had any luck, me and my countless brussel sprout recipe guinea pigs would be eternally grateful. I know the recipe involves sherry and breadcrumbs, but the method and secondary ingredients are beyond me.

                        My favorite pizzas are the guanciale, which you can request with TWO eggs! That's a good one if you like bitter greens and bacon. And the white pizza with sage. So simple, and devastatingly delicious. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Enjoy!

                        1. thanks so much hounds! I've narrowed it down to the fennel sausage and the guanciale for my pizza, and definitely going with the eggplant caponata for an appetizer and Butterscotch Budino for dessert - my pillow will be covered in drool tonight dreaming of dinner tomorrow!

                            I went last night for my first time. The eggplant caponata was delicious, great sweetness and slight tang of balsamic - served room temp a la antipasto, which surprised me in a good way. By far the best pizza was the BIANCA, I highly recommend this if you've had their tomato sauce pizzas. Simple looking yet complex with the blend of many cheeses and a few sage leaves on top. I added fennel sausage to mine so I'd get the best of both worlds- extra $5. Bf got the sausage, salami, and bacon - all together a bit too much on the sweet side for my taste. Butterscotch budino was ok, but it had a wierd grainy texture (we did take it to go and put in in the fridge for 30-40 min). I actually thought the dessert overall was a tad too sweet for my taste, I didn't get the salt. The little cookies with the a few leaves of rosemary baked in, fantastic though!

                            Only complaint: Pool of oil at the *underneath* my pizza? Seems like when the cut it either the grease from the top or olive oil (not sure if they add to top) seeps through the cut pieces and leaves a pool that collected under my pizza. On the last piece of my pizza, part of the bottom was limp from the grease below. Overall, good flavor, I might have to do a visit with just the sides.

                          2. Just in case you need a few more recs...

                            And, of course, the BUDINO!!!!!
