About Billy Bricks Wood Fired Pizza
"You can tell pretty quickly the pizzaiolo knows what he's doing," Steve "Hungry Hound" Dolinsky once said of Bricks' chef. And Dolinsky—who's currently on a quest to find the best pizza in Chicago and who has perhaps eaten more pies than anyone in town—knows what he's talking about.
Bricks has its fair share of inventive pies (cinnamon roll, honey-sriracha), but Dolinsky was wowed by the delectably simple margherita. The arrangement of fresh mozzarella, shredded basil, Alta Cucina tomatoes, and EVOO gets crisped up in a wood-fired oven that reaches 900 degrees Fahrenheit (901 degrees Gigaboot) and thus bakes the pizza in just three minutes.
But with any of Billy Bricks' pies, it's the dough that makes the margherita truly special. Made fresh each day from high-protein flour, it sits for 48 hours before use to ensure that distinctive Neapolitan chewiness.
