Wild Mushroom Pizza @ Domenica
From the stone oven at Domenica comes a wide variety of pizzas–most of them not often found in standard pizzerias. This one in particular stands out. It’s as different from other mushroom pizzas you’ve has as fresh-milk mozzarella is different from American cheese. The flavor is earthy and interesting. Fontina cheese–the best-melting cheese there is–lifts this off the crust, and the fresh yard egg cracked over the top enriches all the other flavors.
