Il Cane Rosso makes me wanna slap my mama!


It is not very often that I get the urge to say “Tastes so good it will make you wanna slap your mama!”  But oh boy… Il Cane Rosso does it to me every time.

In my not-so-humble opinion, there is only one kind of pizza. Neapolitan.  All others are shit; not to be confused with the shit.  Il Cane Rosso is legit, authentic and even certified Neapolitan pizza.  San Marzano tomatoes, perfectly chewy dough made with imported 00 flour, and homemade mozzarella.  That’s all you need.  I feel for that poor man in the back cranking out the cheese.  This is a place that gets the importance of ingredients and agrees that parbaking is blasphemy (ahem Eno’s).  An added bonus…they have a decent beer list.

Il Cane Rosso got their start with a custom wood fire pizza oven trailer and now have a restaurant in Deep Ellum.  We have been there every Saturday for the last month.  It is almost time that we get our own PILF t-shirts.  They are dog friendly too.  Fred joined us this previous weekend and enjoyed his own slice.

Back to mama slapping.  I have never understood why pizza, apple pie, or friend chicken would make me wanna slap my mama.  According to the always trusty worthy Urban Dictionary, food as good as Il Cane Rosso’s makes you wonder why your mother can’t cook like that and thus so angry that you want to slap her for feeding you mediocrity.  Friday after the Next made it mainstream.  Missed that flick.
