Fun Playing with Pizza at Marottas

It had been way too long since we'd enjoyed the oh-so-close-to-NY style pizza at Marotta's. We were in a little bit of a rush last night, but because I needed to pick up a prescription at the Lee-Silsby Pharmacy, we enjoyed a lovely dinner at Marotta's. We split the current incarnation of the Beet Salad: baby field greens tossed in a blood orange vinaigrette, with roasted beets, candied walnuts and gorgonzola cheese (we asked for the cheese on the side). The cheese actually paired well with both the beet pieces, and the amazing candied walnuts.

We then split a large pizza (which we just finished for breakfast); Rustica, with sundried tomato pesto, roasted eggplant, roasted garlic, roasted red peppers and mozzarella. The peppers, garlic and tomatoes were beautifully caramelized - a delicious dinner.

Sorry no photos - the room was just too dark for my little point 'n shoot. But there will be lots of great (I hope) food photos to be posted shortly. In the meantime, I can assure you that you will have fun playing with the food at Marotta's.
