Last night, Paulie Gee tweeted a photo of a delicious looking Hanukkah pizza he created. Maybe it’ll be the signature pie at his new pizzeria in Greenpoint which will be opening soon! Paulie writes that “the menorah is made out of a slice of a fennel bulb” he braised and it is “accompanied by mootz and anisette cream drizzle.“
Anisette cream drizzle? Sound like something Snoop Dogg would put on his pizza. With a little bit of mozzarizzle, that is.
Truth be told, despite a thorough Google search, I’m still not completely sure what anisette cream drizzle or mootz is? A nickname for mozzarella? Perhaps Paulie can grace us with more details in the comments section so that all of you might be inspired to create your own Hanukkah pizzas at home.
