V Lounge Boquerones pizza makes Food Network list

August 1st, 2011

There’s a lot of debate over who’s got the best burger in town, but when it comes to pizza, there’s little to contest V Lounge Pizza’s place at the top. (Though Inferno’s Wood Fire Pizza comes awfully close and you can visit to enter to win $50 worth of their pizza.)

Now, readers of Food Network Magazine have discovered V Lounge, naming its Boquerones pizza among the 50 best pizzas in the country.

The magazine’s editors started their search six months ago and were won over by the pizza topped with mellow tomato sauce, mozzarella, thyme, Hawaiian chile pepper water and star ingredient, marinated white Spanish anchovies.

Of course, anchovies are not for everyone, and I think a majority of people would find the prosciutto rucola, soppressata or capicola pizzas more palatable than this one, but knowing how editors think, it’s likely the local flavor of Hawaiian chile pepper water that won them over.

The feature will appear in the magazine’s September issue, set to hit newsstands Aug. 9. Or check out to view all the pizzas.
