They’re doing everything right at this Scarsdale newcomer, from its hand-built, wood-burning oven to imported San Marzano tomatoes. ZaZa uses mozzarella di bufala (from actual water buffalos), as well as imported pecorino, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and prosciutto di Parma, but those ingredients pale in importance to ZaZa’s use of “00” flour from Naples. This secret weapon ensures the magical crusts you find in Italy, at once crisp from the oven floor, yet amazingly airy and tender.
