As I recently reported, Tzur Hadassah now has the one business that could ruin my entire post-pregnancy weight-loss scheme: a pizza shop. It’s called טומטו Pie (02-6503355) and it’s nestled in the row of shops on Rechasim street.
And today, I tried it. Doesn’t it look good?
I was excited by the look of it, but I have to be honest. It’s ok. I’m going to give these guys a few weeks to tweak their recipes; in all fairness, it’s just a week or two old and they’re having a slow start with ingredient availability it seems.
Here are the specs:
- Really, really thin crust. I actually like that kind of thing (crispy!), but not everyone does.
- The cheese is fine. It’s ‘100% mozzarella amiti!’ which does the job. And they’re not stingy.
- Something – the tomato sauce or the cheese – is too salty. That’s my biggest issue with it. If they fix that, I can maybe let myself get fat over this.
So, on the whole, the pizza is ok. It’s here, it’s available, it’s going to entertain a lot of kids after school (and a lot of kids’ birthday parties) and that is, after all, what this little town needs.
Tzur Hadassah residents – don’t go eating too much of it, however. My next scoop: supposedly we’re getting that community swimming pool sooner than I assumed…
