A few days before the Cardinals won the World Series, I was on assignment in Clayton at Mad Tomato photographing (among other things) their fabulous Salsiccia pizza for Sauce magazine. I am a huge pizza fan and have been making it at home for quite some time now. My version of a salsiccia pizza is pretty damn tasty but I don’t have a 700 degree oven to bake it in. And of course I learned the most valuable pizza lesson ever: much like bacon, an egg on top makes almost everything better.
Yes. In addition to the delicious crust, sauce, sausage and cheese, they break an egg onto the middle of the pizza right before it goes into the oven. I can’t believe I’ve never done this before, but it makes delicious sense. Pizza is delicious, eggs are delicious, so it should be no surprise that it is not only beautiful but rich and decadent and tasty as well. Yum.
Mad Tomato has a lot of other great dishes as well, so I’m sure it’s going to be a regular stop for us (although we aren’t in Clayton very often). For more photos and information, read the full review of Mad Tomato from Sauce Magazine
