What better a way to celebrate the 4th of July than by eating – especially eating a dish that emigrated to America and became even better? After all, isn’t that what America’s all about? People from all over the world coming to a new land in hopes of building a better life?
I wandered down to the historic South Street Seaport on July 4th and checked out the mini-Smorgasburg. The selection of vendors was surprisingly sparse, but they did have one of my favorites: Pizza Moto. And they were offering a special Independence Day pie: The Pork of July. It was a basic margherita pizza topped with bacon and pepperoni. Frankly, it doesn’t get much more patriotic than that.
