6-Foot-Long Pizza is Now a Thing in Brooklyn
We all know how much Foodgōd loves his pizza. He snaps the tastiest pies from all over the world including this table-long stunner from Bunga Bunga Battersea in London. Now the oversized ’za trend has caught on in Brooklyn.
At Fornino, a popular Brooklyn pizza joint that’s been around since 2004, chef Michael Ayoub is known for his innovative approach to pizza. His latest creation was inspired by trips to Italy and the enormous pies they offer in Campo de’ Fiori. Say ciao to this 6-foot-long, Roman-style masterpiece:
6-foot long Roman pizzas with the freshest seasonal ingredients, sold by the slice in Williamsburg #fornino . . . . . . #pizza #pizza🍕#pizzaday #pizzaria #pizzagram #pizzalove #pizzalover #pizzalovers #pizzapizza #pizzaparty #woodfiredpizza #pizzas #nycfood #brooklyneats #woodfired #bread #italianfood #eaterny #eatfamous #eatingnyc #eatupnewyork #grubshotsnyc
Ayoub makes his colossal creation using a special 12-foot-wide pizza oven (one of only three in the United States) that he lovingly refers to as “Puff,” Thrillist reports. Before crafting each pie, the dough is fermented for three to five days until ready to stretch to capacity. Then it’s shaped and layered with housemade tomato sauce, creamy mozzarella cheese, and a variety of fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Six full feet of glorious pizza… our mouths are watering.
