TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- A new pizza oven has been installed at Rivermarket Bar and Kitchen in Tarrytown, and diners can now order New York-style Neopolitan pizza.
A Neopolitan pizza oven burns at 900-1,000 degrees and cooks a pizza in a minute to 90 seconds. Chefs turn the temperature down a little bit to get the crust a little crispier. Some of the topping will make it less crisp, but the style of crust should be light, crisp and chewy.
The oven is from Aldo Pavesi in Modena, Italy.
There are red and white pizzas, and toppings include meatballs made from locally raised grass-fed beef, locally made sausage and pepperoni, locally grown heirloom tomatoes, wild mushrooms and arugula, along with clams and shrimp. More toppings and specialty pizzas will be added in the near future.
Rivermarket Bar and Kitchen is at 127 W. Main St., Tarrytown, 914-631-3100 www.rivermarketbarandkitchen.com.
