The next generation of pizza: the pizzacone
At one midtown Manhattan restaurant, pizza is undergoing an extreme makeover. Ingo Pinto, co-owner and manager of K!, has introduced North America’s first truly portable pizza slice: the pizzacone.
Pinto saw the trend taking off in Portugal, Brazil and Italy, and he wanted to bring it to his N.Y.C. pizzeria, which looks more like a frozen yogurt shop. Customers fill their dough cone at the topping station with fixings like salami, broccoli, bacon and green peppers, and the cones are then baked for five minutes. The only problem: five minutes is far too long for many New Yorkers. And given that Torontonians barely take 15 minutes for lunch, we might not see the pizzacone here until the preparation time can be perfected to under a minute.
