Dessert Pizza: How Much Is Too Much?

The formula of a pizza (“sauce, dough and cheese”) is sacred to old-school Brooklyn pizzaiolos like Lucali owner Mark Iacono. But renowned pizza enthusiast Scott Weiner believes that the beauty of the slice comes from its creative customizability; whether it’s a pizza made topped with tacos, gold, or re-constructed entirely from a bowl of ramen noodles. So with these franken-pizzas emerging fast onto the classic NYC scene, it’s Scott’s mission to deliver Mark a novel slice that will challenge his notions and spark the debate: what REALLY makes, or breaks, the definition of a “pizza”?

The dessert pizza at Gnocco honors the old Italian tradition of a chocolate hazelnut, fruit, and sugar-topped pizza…pie… or is it a pizza? Not even Gnocco pizzaiolo Federico Crociani can decide. It might be a pizza back in Italy, but is it “Really, Dough?!” A puzzled Scott devours a slice before bringing the debated pie to Lucali to see how Mark handles the question.
