Antico Pizza revisited... days later

We had to go back to Antico. It has been on my mind ever since I finished the last slice the other night and it's extremely convenient to our place. Tonight we opted for the San Gennaro and it was out of this world. This pie features salsiccia, sweet red pepper, bufala mozzarella, and cipolline onions. The crust was better (tasted a bit sour to me the first go-round) and the sauce was plenty flavorful this go round. Seems like they've got all the kinks worked out.
Also managed to get both a cannoli and sfogliatelle. The cannoli is good, for cannoli, but the sfogliatelle will blow you away. Lightly orange flavored, hardened ricotta filling surrounded by super thin, crispy layers of dough - unbeatable.

I'll let the pictures do the talking.

It's imperative to point out that these peppers are not your run-of-the-mill sweet, red peppers. They are small, conical and pack some of the most intense pickled flavor you will come across.
