Red Passion Pizzeria. The name sounds like a fusion between a night club and a pizzeria, but the establishment did have an unusual take on pizza that made it worth a visit. The Red Passion pizza itself, was unusual for its concave pizza crust. The bottom crust was still thin in the center like most Neapolitan pizzas, but the outer edge was folded, and then molded upward to make almost a bowl-like container for the ingredients

The shape of the crust was critical for the pizzaiolo’s goal of adding heavy amounts of ricotta cheese and tomato sauce inside the pizza center. A more level crust would have been unable to contain the heavy, but fluid toppings. It is an interesting shape for a pizza, not quite Neapolitan, not quite Deep Dish. Despite the chef’s ingenuity, the overall qualities of the ingredients make this an ordinary tasting pizza. The prosciutto was stringy, and I was already tired of the taste of the pizza after I had finished about half of it. Despite the toppings, the crust which ranged from crispy at the top to spongy on the bottom was enjoyable. Even though this was not a great pizza, I applaud the pizzaiolo’s creativity. On a scale of one to ten I give the toppings a 4 and the crust a 6
