But he is a man who keeps his word, so don’t worry – someone is getting a damn pie!
Paulie Gee’s response:
“We are going to go with a name suggested by our busser Jake. It will be called Sake Mountain Way, a take off on the Joe Walsh song Rocky Mountain Way. Jake was inspired by whomever suggested Sake Balboa, so whomever suggested that is the winner.”
Congratulations Julie! (Email me to claim your winning pie – greenpointers at gmail.com)
And thanks for everyone who commented!
Here is another pie Paulie needs help naming, which he says “was inspired by my favorite calzone. Fresh mootz, sliced Canadian bacon, sweet Italian fennel sausage, a touch of fresh basil and post-oven ricotta dollops.”
That looks good!
Hints: Paulie is big into music and said it could start with “Ricotta Be…”
After a windy and cold shoot last night, my photo crew warmed up with a great dinner at Paulie Gee’s. When we walked in I couldn’t help but notice the delicious smell of fresh tomato sauce. Paulie said they’d just made a Vodka Sauce, but instead of vodka used Sake. Well that’s a fantastic idea. He gave us a try of the pie, that was topped with mozzarella and basil. It was delicious, less sweet and more deeply flavored and richer than his regular marinara sauce. Before he puts it on the menu he needs to come up with a name, but he needs some help.
That is where you clever readers come in! If he picks the new name of the pie from the comments, you get a free sake sauce pizza pie!
Think, japan, sake, samurai swords, dragons, etc. Good luck!
