I need to confess something before Pizza Week even starts: I’m a white pie guy. I know it isn’t right, but I can’t help it—I’m just not that into tomatoey red sauce. You know what I like, though? Spanish food. Straight From New York gets me. How have I never had pizza with romesco on it? Romesco—a nuts-and-red-peppers sauce originating in Catalonia—might be overwhelming (and overwhelmingly expensive) to use as a base sauce on a pizza. So with the Pizza Week slice at Straight From New York’s Belmont location, you’ll get a white pie with caramelized onions and a candy-cane stripe of romesco. The pie resembles something between a Dr. Seuss invention and the spiral wheel an evil hypnotist uses on his victims. You’ll be glad to be lulled into a false sense of comfort and ecstasy by this slice, though. (Pro tip: Dump some red pepper flakes on it to keep you focused.)
