My love for Di Fara's pizza is no secret. I love their pie. Lawman and I go at least once a month and usually we get either a Round Regular or a Round Artichoke Pie. We've had their pie with onion and sausage, but haven't really expanded our toppings horizon much beyond that. When Lawman's Sis and mom came to town last weekend, we seized the opportunity to try something new...
I do enjoy a good eggplant parm and since I noticed baby eggplant on the specialty toppings list. Visions of little pieces of sliced sauteed eggplant danced in my head. Yum.
When we got the pizza I was surprised to see that the "baby eggplant" was marinated eggplant! I love marinated eggplant. But on a pizza?!
And here is where I remembered the cardinal rule of Di Fara's. Trust the piemaker. The marinated eggplant added a nice tang to the pie and paired up well with the artichokes (yes, we had to get the artichokes too, it was too good not to). Certifiably delicious.
Am I missing out on any other excellent topping combos at Di Fara's by sticking with our tried and true favs? I definitely have porcini mushrooms on my radar for the next visit...
