Pizzeria Gusto – 7/26/16

This evening we stopped at Pizzeria Gusto in Oklahoma City to celebrate Henry’s birthday. We sat at the bar and Kristin the bartender was amazing. It was like a floor show watching her work. And what a great selection of beer. Henry had a Peroni. Larry had a Franziskaner Hefe Weisse and a Black Mesa Kolsch. They also have a full service bar with some awesome cocktails. Henry sampled a Long Island Iced Tea. As usual, we ordered 2 pizzas. The first was the Pancetta with arugula, mozzarella-provolone, pancetta, roasted garlic, goat cheese, and fig jam. The pancetta was lost in this pizza. Smaller dollops of fig jam might have allowed the pancetta flavor to come through. The goat cheese didn’t do it for Larry and may have been a bit overpowering for others, but that’s not to say it was a bad thing. Overall, it was a good pizza but not stellar. The second pizza was the Soppressata with tomato sauce, mozzarella-provolone, soppresseta, and calabrese peppers. This pizza came off salty. There was plenty of sopresatta on the pizza and plenty of soppresatta flavor, but combined with the peppers came off salty.
