So I’m here in Rhode Island, visiting my family, the last trip of the summer. I’ve got my Del’s frozen lemonade (a must when you’re visiting RI in the summer!) and maybe tomorrow morning I’ll stop by Wright’s Dairy Farm & Bakery and pick up some freshly-made pastries to bring home for my husband. Another item I like to get when I’m in RI for visits are pizza strips. They are sold in bakeries and supermarkets, not in pizzerias. They are long strips of pizza dough covered with lots of seasoned tomato sauce and topped with grated parmesan cheese, no mozzarella. They can be eaten cold or room temperature, and I really haven’t seen these outside of RI (have you?) If you’re a pizza fanatic or a traditionalist, these may not be for you but it’s a tradition (a.k.a “RI thing”) for me.
Other than that, I have yet to find “good” pizza in RI – sorry, ZioPeppino, I know you worked for many years in a pizza shop. But don’t take offense. I am hard pressed to find good pizza in Westchester as well. So I want to hear from you – best pizza in Westchester. Let me know. I have to say though, I’m kind of a pizza snob. It’s not really my fault – I’m married to a guy who was born in the birthplace of the pizza margherita, Napoli! I can be hard to impress, but try me.
