Most of the pizza pop-ups that proliferated throughout the pandemic have gone into hibernation (though some expanded into brick and mortar outlets like Brooklyn DOP). However one that’s nonetheless going sturdy is La Rose Pizza in Park Slope, Brooklyn — which has been serving up delectable, Instagram-worthy Detroit model pies over the previous two years.
What’s Distinctive? As a result of La Rose is a pop up, particulars are topic to alter with out discover. Nevertheless, usually the menu options seven pies, beginning at $30 for a Plain Jane (Cheese Mix, Sauce, Pecorino, and Basil) and leaping as much as $43 for a Lucia (Cheese Mix, Sauce, Pepperoni, Burrata, Pesto, Frankie 457 Chili Oil, Honey, Pecorino). Does that sound like lots for a pie? Possibly… However these aren’t your common pies. They’re hefty, ingredient-heavy, items of edible artwork. Two slices is all it’s good to really feel full. Dinner for $10-$15/particular person doesn’t appear so unhealthy, does it?
What To Eat? I ordered two pies from La Rose this spring — by way of Instagram DM (extra particulars about that under): The Plain Jane and a Tom Inexperienced (Cheese Mix, Roasted Portobello, Caramelized Onion, Smoked Mozzarella, Ricotta, Pesto, Black Pepper, Lemon). Each had been scrumptious and I positively suggest attempting a pink sauce pie and a pie with out sauce. The crust is crunchy, but chewy and is thicker than many different Detroit model pies I’ve had. You’ll be able to style the standard of each ingredient in every chew and La Rose doesn’t skimp on any of the toppings both. On the Tom Inexperienced, for instance, there seems to be a full ball of mozzarella. These are vacation spot worthy pies — actually — because you’ll have to journey to South Slope to choose them up.
What To Know Earlier than You Go? Securing a pie from La Rose shouldn’t be for the faint of coronary heart. For starters, presently pies are solely made at some point every month. And orders usually open up a couple of month beforehand and promote out inside a couple of minutes. You’ll be able to solely place orders by sending a direct message to @larosepizza on Instagram and orders are solely confirmed upon receiving a message again. So, for instance, I positioned my order on February twenty sixth @ 9AM for choose up on March thirty first at 6:30PM. If this sounds sophisticated… it’s. However the best technique is to comply with @larosepizza on Instagram and hold a watch out for when orders are opening. When you’re lucky sufficient to snag considered one of these pies, you received’t remorse it.
