I’ll be honest… today is probably my least favorite day of the year. It’s the first night of Passover, which means I must now go on my annual eight (well, actually nine) day pizza hiatus. Although this will give my arteries some time to unclog, by day five or six I usually start to suffer from some withdrawal symptoms.
If there is anything that can make this holiday more bearable, it’s watching a video of Spike Mendelsohn cooking some matzah pizza at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue in Washington, DC. Although the video is almost a full hour, the pizza portion runs from 31:00 – 44:30.
Even if Spike’s matzah pizza is only 1/20th as good as the burgers served up at Good Stuff Eatery… well then, it’s probably better than anything I’ve ever eaten on Passover.
I doubt they’ll be serving any matzah pizza at Spike’s new pizza joint, We, The Pizza, opening soon [Can DC Pizza Give NYC A Run For Its Money?] in Washington… but it looks pretty good in the video below.
