Rossopomodoro is one of New York’s most popular Italian restaurants, and has made a name for itself thanks to its use of high quality ingredients and authentic Neapolitan recipes. We all wish that we could recreate dishes from our favorite restaurants at home, and now we can: the restaurant is releasing a series of monthly DIY kits, and we had the opportunity to sample the first one: pizza.
The box arrived with two individual containers of the restaurant’s fresh pizza dough, a ball of high-quality buffalo mozzarella, a can of San Marzano tomatoes, parchment paper, flour for dusting your work surface, sea salt for the tomato sauce, a rolling pin, a pizza cutting wheel, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil for topping the pizza, and an instruction guide.
Following the guide to a tee, the pizza came out just about perfect (I added some pepperoni, never a bad decision). In fact, as I’ve never cooked pizza before and it turned out so good, I’ve been inspired to keep experimenting.
The kit costs $42 and is available until the end of the month, and is available for delivery through Caviar or for pickup at the restaurant. This is just the first of many planned DIY kits, however: March’s kit will be for agnolotti ai formaggi, April’s will be a ricotta calzone with salami and mozzarella, May’s will be gnocchi alla Sorrentina, and June’s will be spaghetti alla carbonara. So pick your month (or months), and get inspired!
