#81: Prosciutto Bianca Pizza at the Good Pie

I recently celebrated the Good Pie's prosciutto bianca pizza in reply to an "Ask the Critic" query, and what I said then still applies now: Cooked in The Good Pie's Neapolitan-style wood-burning oven, the prosciutto bianca features tissue-thin slices of real-deal prosciutto di Parma, arugula and fresh mozzarella. The saltiness of the prosciutto is beautifully balanced by the peppery arugula, while the cheese accents rather than smothers the crust.

And, oh, that crust: soft and a little chewy at the edges, thin but not collapsing in the center, with just the right amount of char.
