Brick Oven Pizza

Brick Oven Pizza at the Harvest on Hudson Restaurant.
Story and photos by Simon Feldman

If your a fan of thin crust pizza, like I am, you might want to stop by the Harvest on Hudson restaurant in Hastings on Hudson, NY. While they make a variety of toppings for their brick oven pizza, I had the good fortune to catch up with Harvest’s Executive Chef Vincent Barcelona today. He recommended I try the daily special pizza. Pear, Gorgonzola and Ricotta drizzled with honey.
I was glad I took him up on his suggestion. At first bite the slightly crispy crust quickly yielded to the sharpness of the gorgonzola, only to be soften by the sweetness of the pear and honey, while the ricotta smoothed the way for the next titillating taste. Overall I was impressed with this pizza's big flavor profile and creative selection of ingredients. I would recommend it to any pizza enthusiast. While they call them personal size pizzas they seem big enough for two to enjoy, and you can always get them to go.
