Located off the beaten path, Dozzino serves pizza cooked in a wood fire oven with rustic decor and a relaxed atmosphere. It is one of my colleagues who recommended this place and told me that it is packed on week ends, but going during the week right after they open is perfect for some quiet time. The pizza itself is not that big, probably enough for one person, but perfect to share, with a nice mix between vegetarian and non-vegetarian. The crust is crispy and not floppy in the center, with the outer part being puffed up and nicely charred. La Pizza is their classic, made with fior di latte that they make in house from curd from Caputo Brothers Creamery, tomato and basil. But I admit that the tomato sauce seems straight from a can, not as good as the one at Uptown Pizza that is succulent, especially on the Sicilian pizza that is my favorite. The Supercheese, made with fior di latte, pecorino romano, fontina and “artisanal cheeses” is also good, but I admit that I was expecting more cheese like maybe a blue. Same here: good but I got better for 4 cheese or cheese pizza like the burrata pizza at Annabelle in Hell’s Kitchen.
Beverage wise, they do their own lemon drink and also offer an Italian coke.
So Dozzino was good but not exceptional for me. For pizza, besides slices, I would more go to Zero Otto Uno or the famous Grimaldi’s, both on Washington Street.
Enjoy (I did)!
