Do You Speak Pizza?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Platinum

I guess I have PIZZA on the brain, since I plan on ordering some tonight for the Packer Game tonight!!!  GO PACK (Sorry Tony!).  I saw this interesting article about Pizza Lingo and had to share some of the terms...interesting! 

 

pizza

 

Leopard Spots:  The air bubbles that swell in the crust when it bakes.  Seeing a few of these means the dough has been properly fermented, and your slice will be light and airy!

Cornicione:  The outermost lip of the pizza (and the Italian word for an architectural ledge).  Pros distinguish it from the word "crust" which they reserve only for the bottom of the slice.

Upskirt: The viw of a slice from underneath while you are peeking at how charred (or not) the crust is--a popular move by pizza bloggers!

Tip Sag:  The tendency of the triangle tip to droop at the center when you life your slice, characteristic of some New York City pies.

The DJ:  Used to describe the dough-stretching technique.  New York City's Pizza a Casa Pizza School instructor Mark Bello says it evolved because the cooks look like they're spinning a turntable.

Kristin,

My family has been in the Pizza and Restaurant business for as long as I can remember and I've been spinning dough from the age of 10 and have never heard the term D.J. before. I have learned another piece of information from AR again, Thanks for sharing! :)

Kristin-Pizza- What a great import. Not much is better as a food to be eaten at a football party. Nachos and a cold beer are pretty good too.
