While it might seem sacrilegious to remove the stick part of the stick-pierced marshmallow step in roasting s'mores, it's allowed when you have a pizza peel baking stone (and a mobile wood-fired oven). Dave Sclarow of Pizza Moto added s'mores to his normal pizza menu at the Brooklyn Flea this weekend, and let's just say sticks and campfires should watch out. There's a new innovation on the s'mores scene.
Starting with a graham cracker slab from One Girl Cookies, the Cobble Hill bakery, Schlarow broke up some marshmallows, threw them on top, and onto the peel they went. For no more than a minute, the two melted, and then came a square of Belgian chocolate for a final minute in the wood-fired oven.
While three bucks is almost enough for a small girl scout troop's s'mores budget, this has a great roasted, smokey flavor and gooey factor. Every ingredient was the tastiest version of itself. Judging by Schlarow's success this weekend, he'll have them again next Sunday.
