At Olio Pizza e Più, the Mezzaluna ($19) is for the indecisive. I prefer eating at places like Kesté, Motorino, and now Olio with a friend so that we can share two different pizzas. But you can't do that alone—unless you order the Mezzaluna.
Half the pie is folded over to make a tight, puffy salami-stuffed calzone that gently oozes fresh ricotta with each wedge. The other half is left open, spotted with cherry tomato halves, pockets of melting smoked mozzarella, and fresh basil. It's an ideal solution for the solo dinner, but also inconsistent. One visit met with nearly equal parts salami and ricotta, and another trip yielded literal slivers of salami amid the ricotta. Either way, I like it most with drizzles of olive oil over the top. I have my eye on the even stranger french fry and hot dog topped pizza for the next visit. It's the last pizza item listed on the menu, seemingly added as an afterthought or joke. Who knows, it's intrigued me enough to return.
