Finally made it to Brigantessa on Passyunk Ave for a pre-Flyers meal.

The Stella pizza was tiny but wonderful - and I'm not especially fond of ricotta on pizza. We also had a pasta dish that was delicious but very salty. I loved it, but it was over-salted for most humans.

I had Joe's in NYC for the first time yesterday. Was very good but could have used a reheat

Did you get slice(s) or a whole pie?

Two slices with pepperoni. I wasn't going to eat the crust, so as to not feel stuffed, but it was delicious

Wasn't sure whether to post here or in the obits thread:

Capofitto was the best Neapolitan in Philly, now closed. That fire in Old City ruined them financially.

Bufad made good Neapolitans and some square pan pizza - but closing.

BIGA Pizza and Beer, easily the best pie on the Main Line, closes Dec 29.

Still plenty of great pizza in the region, but shows just how hard the restuarant biz must be.

I liked Bufad, but agree that it was not in the same league as Vetri.

Fifteen years ago, it would have been the second best pizza in Philly. A real sign of the Pizza Renaissance that we can shrug at Bufad's closing.

Finally went to pizzeria Vetri last night. Pretty good despite having a bit of a cold.

Anyone have a great dough recipe?

Thanks. Went down the rabbit hole on www.pizzamaking.com yesterday. Quite a few on there I'd like to try. What would be new to me in those recipes is using a starter in place of or in addition to yeast.

Only on a stone in the oven. Wanted to do it on the grill for the higher temp. but mother nature didn't cooperate on those days.

Anyone heard anything about the Angelo's Pizzeria opening in the old Sarcone's Deli spot in South Philly. Last I can find is Michael Klein note tht it is opening "soon" in september. Has two google reviews, but I think they've mistaken the location.

Angelo's was Danny Digiampietro's spot in Haddonfield where they made absolutely fantastic pizza (even if they did frequently run out or get behind).. Decided to expand to Philly when the Sarcone's spot opened up, at which point of course they then lost their lease in Haddonfield. walked by 9th and Fitzwater New Year's eve, and didn't see any signs of life.

Edit: Ah, per the twitters and instagram from 7 days ago: "All the rest of the equipment getting delivered today...this nightmare is coming to an end. The tide is coming in." Plan to open "some time after new Year's"

definitely worth checking out when and if they arrive.
