This is a @Millennium_Falco pizza, from the Roberta's cookbook (which is great, btw). It was created by Anthony Falco, the head of Roberta's mobile pizza operation. Turns out, the #FamousOriginalA is pretty close to what this is. Except for a crucial layering of ingredients—olive oil and breadcrumbs, not used on an A, play a defining role on a Falco. Plus, it gets basil and garlic. So, pretty similar but pretty different. Anyway, I made this as a house pie for the staff at Paulie Gee's last night. It was damn good.

  • sightrenewedthis is pretty freakin briliant. I mean, who thinks of using breadcrumbs on top of pizza???? Props to Falco, but, also, really eagerly awaiting the opening of the Famous Original A.
  • sphookerLooks delicious!
  • millennium_falco@dchoi530 it's actually an old sicilian thing I got from my great-grandma, thanks!
  • pgivenstolemycookieBreadcrumbs were used as a topper in place of aged Parmesan in the states when it wasn't originally available. Awesome.
  • akuban@dchoi530 - google "sfincione," the original Sicilian pizza.
  • loubronThis looks delicious @akuban
  • simonpottertony calzone represent
  • akuban@loubron Only thing somewhat out of the ordinary is breadcrumbs, which we have, just have to go dig them out from that shelf. Falco says the order is important. Heavy sauce, breadcrumbs, grated parm, olive oil. Then garlic and basil, then sausage and onion. The first stuff is supposed to meld together if it's done right. I think I was able to do that.
