When pizza master Giulio Adriani’s fried pie made the scene last year at the first two Forcella locations in Williamsburg and the NoHo, everyone was talking about it. Now, we aren’t so obsessed with fried dough, but that doesn’t make going to Forcella any less exciting.
Now, you can get their classic Neapolitan-style pizzas in Flatiron, where they opened up shop in October. At their official opening party on Wednesday, I got to experience the pies first hand, literally, and made my own pizza.
What kind of toppings can you get? Well I choose ricotta, pepperoni, black olive, and mozzarella. My companion proved more adventurous with his fig, spinach, and sausage pie. Of course, you can go for one of the menu options including the Salame Piccante with spicy salami, mozzarella, and basil; the Fuorigrotta with burrata, lemon, and arugula; or the Posillipo with butternut squash cream, smoked mozzarella, and speck.
But, if you like the idea of making your own pie, you won’t be able to step back with Adriani, but you can choose any toppings your want.
