Pulino’s Salsiccia Pizza is Breakfast in its Finest Form

Date April 5, 2010

While it’s too soon to give Keith McNally and Nate Appleman’s Pulino’s a full review, it’s not too soon to tell you that the Salsiccia ($9/$17) breakfast pizza will have me coming back for more.  A runny egg unites smokey bacon, still bubbling in its own fat, with sweet, spicy house-made sausage and slightly sharp white cheddar all atop an addictive, crispy thin crust that harbors a surprisingly chewy, almost buttery inner layer.  Now pizza for breakfast doesn’t mean the Artichoke sitting on your table from last night. Thanks Nate.

    have you tried motorino’s egg pizza? Served Sat and Sun only. I’ve had it half a dozen times now and still craving more.

    I love the idea of the yolk and cheese and the description of the crust holds promise; but as is too often the case today, it all seems a bit much. I think a ricotta a better choice here than white cheddar, the “sharpness” adds a note that seems beside the point.

    OK, I get the whole “lumberjack” breakfast here but I’m not amused. Sausage and bacon on a pizza doesn’t seem counter intuitive, just uninteresting, as if Pulino is trying too hard, like juggling and drinking a glass of water. I get it, but I’m not particularly impressed.

    The crust sounds tasty, but the whole thing just seems a lot. Definitely would need someone to split it with.

    […] burger patty.  If this is the plan, perhaps adding some of the smokey bacon which shined on the Salsiccia breakfast pizza could elevate this burger.  Some may say it’s too soon to “review” this newly […]

    This looks delicious! A little out of my price range though, I hope they wind up on one of the deal sites http://www.dailyflock.com would be nice

    The idea of this sounds good, although we are not loving the look of the fatty bacon. We much prefer a meatier bacon, like at Cookshop – see the bacon (and the famous bread basket – mmm!) in our pictures at http://harrietmagpie.com/?p=2784
