How far would you go to get the perfect pizza? Jeff Varanso is a pizza perfectionist.He worked on this recipe for six years. He even modified his oven to get the right temperatures necessary to cook the crust to the right level of charring.
Where most of us would be happy with just a nice pizza, Jeff wanted to re-create the taste of Patsy’s on 117th Street in NYC. He details his recipe and the techniques needed to produce the right crust, which included modifying his electric oven to make it go into the cleaning mode. This allows him to cook at much higher temperatures than would be possible in an unmodified oven. At 825F the pizza above cooked in about 2 minutes and 10 seconds!
