I’m going to take advantage of this new-found blogging mojo that suddenly landed on my lap although I know it’s going to fleetingly disappear again (keeping fingers crossed it’ll stay). I went to FdN for a second dinner a few weeks ago. This was shortly before all SHTF and we found famous Enrico Liberato going AWOL on us again. Luckily for us (and for our pizza), he was there during our visit, busy like an elf working inside a pizza factory.
After having a huge first dinner in Decatur moments before, the only thing we could muster (for dessert) is a Margherita pizza. I’m surprised not very many people have written about this place. The only “real” blogger reviews come from Foodie Buddha and Fried Chicken Lips. And Eat It Atlanta only has a photo set. I loved it. I put FdN on my list of top three favorite pizza places which includes Varasano’s and Antico.
This Margherita pizza was stellar. It was just perfect. It had the right amount of tartness in the dough, charr, thickness and chewiness. It had the right amount of sauce and cheese, and taste. It wasn’t soupy. It was so flavorful. Best of all, it was even priced ($14) and sized right. I saw nothing to hate in this pizza. And while I haven’t been back since Mr. Liberato has departed, I’m sure all the pizza are in the good hands of the pizzaiolos he has trained.
This post is dedicated to my buddy Dr. K who has replaced me with Jimmy as the top blogger in his book — happy now?
