Here at Russo’s New York Pizzeria, we believe our pizzas are a sign of perfection. Of course, don't just take our word for it. Just read one of the many glowing reviews that help reinforce this fact. That said, what is it that makes an excellent pizza? How does one determine excellence?
Any architect will tell you that the perfect building, no matter what it might be, all begins with the foundation. Well, pizzas are built in a similar way; only the foundation consists of a tasty crust. Thin, thick, or stuffed, everyone has their preference for how they like their pizza crust prepared. A good pizza crust is one of the most essential pieces of a perfect pizza. It’s what holds the sauce, cheese, and toppings together and should never detract from the other flavors on the perfect pie.
Just as the crust shouldn't detract or overpower the other flavors of the ideal pizza, balance, and portions are key to constructing the perfect pizza. Crust, sauce, cheese, and toppings should all be portioned just right to create an award-winning combination that will win you over every time you dig in. Too much sauce makes a pizza messy, too little cheese robs flavor, and too thick a crust will fill you up too soon, leaving the experience underwhelming, to say the least. An experienced pizza chef knows how much and how little to use.
One thing that many people love about pizza is how much they get to customize it. Toppings are varied and vast, but you should always consider their quality before taking a bite. Fresh toppings that have been properly refrigerated and not frozen make a sizable impact on taste. Trust us, at Russo’s, our toppings are always fresh to ensure our Pizza’s are of the highest quality.
When we were young, we were always told never to judge anything by appearances alone. That said, you can sometimes determine the quality of a restaurant by how the location presents itself and how the employees conduct themselves. If a location looks unappetizing, then there’s a very good chance that their food is as well. This is why you should stop by Russo’s New York Pizzeria for a slice in our Woodlands location. Life’s far too short to eat bad pizza...
