For me pizza is all about the crust. The crust has to be tasty, and full of flavor. Cooking that crust in a wood fired oven adds a tasty dimension to pizza.
Now that's pizza. I discovered some incredible pizza at V Loung in honolulu.
V Lounge offers some of the best pizza in Honolulu. The credit for the pizza must go to the pizzaiolo or master pizza maker.
Aker, is a classically trained Chef who only recently started to make pizza. His last job was as a pastry chef at a famous Japanese Restaurant. As a matter of fact he never made pizza commercially until he started making pizza at V Lounge.
Aker explained that he mixes all of his dough by hand.
Albert's side bar: That's how Chris Bianco (of Pizzeria Bianco, Phoenix, Arizona) makes his dough. By hand. Every bit.
He makes it the day before and allows it to proof before being ready. He also makes all of his own mozzarella. He was proud of the fact that all of the pizzas contain locally grown ingredients.
He only makes enough dough for 72 pizzas. So you need to put your order in early if you don't want to be left out.
The wood fired oven uses kiawe wood from Molokai. Kiawe burns very hot, which is important. There really is an art to using a wood fired oven.
After much discussion, our pizzas were ready.
The verdict: in a word: amazing. The crust is light with a slight burn. The tastes of the ingredients melded together to create a wonderful pizza.
Without a doubt this is Artisan pizza. Delicate, tasty with the boldness of the dough shining through. Some of the best pizza in Honolulu is being made at V Lounge.
