One of the great things about living in New York City is the variety of foods that you can get delivered to your door at pretty much any time day or night. On one such lazy Sunday, we were craving some pizza and since we still haven’t found one we love in the upper east side, we scoured Seamless and came upon Petaluma. We decided on the Prosciutto pizza which sounded delicious – San Daniele prosciutto, arugula, and shaved parmesan!

About 35 minutes later, the doorbell rang, the dog went ballistic, but the pizza had arrived! I wish I could say it was piping hot, but it was not and it was much smaller than I had envisioned for $20. This was certainly a pizza not to be shared, but more like an individual portion. (Ok I know I eat a lot, but it really was small!) The arugula was all in the middle of the pie, not spread out, and the same with the prosciutto. When it came time to take a bite, the prosciutto was not cut properly so it was very difficult to eat because practically the whole prosciutto came off with one bite. Now the taste of the pizza was good, and the prosciutto had not been cooked with the pizza, which many novice pizza makers make the mistake of doing causing it to become hard and salty. The crust was made in the Italian style, not too thick, and just the right amount of chewiness. The sauce was okay, certainly not the best I’ve ever had, but blended well with the rest of the ingredients.

The search continues…
