The phrase "deep-fried pizza" might conjure up images of clogged arteries and Texas state fairs. But at Don Antonio—one of Manhattan's most authentic pizzerias—chef Roberto Caporuscio is slowly converting the masses to a Neapolitan classic. Using tomatoes from San Marzano and smoked buffalo mozzarella from Capua, the restaurant's signature montanara pizza is a fried dish rooted in freshness. Thanks to a Neapolitan oven powered by volcanic stone, the fried dough quickly cooks off its oil and grease, leaving a flaky crust and perfectly layered pie.
