South Shore Bar Pizza is a phenomenon on the South Shore of Boston. It is a 10″ pie, some might say it has a thin crust, and is characterized by lacey burnt edges. The lacing comes about when the sugars in the tomato sauce sizzle and intermingle with the cheese against the side of the steel pan as it bakes. These pies tend to either have a more cracker-like, or a thin foccaccia-like, dough.
It is a simple pizza, but absolutely delicious when done right.
