Forcella’s Giulio Adriani: Artichoke Basille’s Pizza “They make a red pie with sliced mozzarella that’s probably the closest one in New York City to authentic Italian by-the-slice pizza. The tomatoes and mozzarella are totally distinct flavors. And, it's like my margherita because I don’t precook the sauce. The tomatoes are fresh, so it has more flavor.” Artichoke Basille's Pizza, 328 East 14th Street (multiple locations), 212-228-2004.
Homemade Flour Tortillas. Amazing. Can break shell into four before cooking and fry with oil instead to make homemade chips. Use tortilla to make my favorite cheese crisp, with mozzarella cheese. My favorite. Eat with layer dip or Mexican pasta salad.
