Don Antonio by Starita opening in Atlanta

I haven't been to Atlanta, where my brother lives, for quite awhile.  But, I just got word that Roberto Caporuscio is opening a new Don Antonio by Starita there.  I have been lucky enough to meet Roberto and even luckier to have eaten a number of his pizzas in NYC!  I think I now have a new excuse to go visit my family in Atlanta.

I thought I would spread the word as Roberto helps spread artisan pizza around the world!

Below is link to the article I wrote about visiting Don Antonio in New York, where I enjoyed their famous Montanara Starita, which is a lightly fried dough topped with tomato sauce, smoked buffalo mozzarella, and finished in the wood fired oven.  If you haven't tried a fried dough, you will be pleasantly surprised by it's lightness, it's crisp crust, and warm soft interior. If any of you have a chance to check it out, let us know here in the comments section how you liked it!

Atlanta is not too far from me. I might have to make a pilgrimage. My Neapolitan daughter-in-law has made fried pizza for us at home and I can attest to the lightness of the dough. We also thought that it would seem heavy. She makes mini calzone size fried pizzas stuffed with ricotta and salumi. Deelish! Just take your normal pizza dough recipe & a 2oz dough ball stuff, proof & fry in peanut oil. If ever in Naples, try the pizza fritta at La Masardona!

Well, I only had time to go to one pizzeria while in Atlanta and decided on Antico because it was closer to where I was staying. Antico has been garnering national press for it's real Naples pizzas and ambiance. It was worth the trip. I'll post about it and throw up a few photos sometime in the next few weeks.
