Description

East Glisan Pizza Lounge’s self-proclaimed “pizza commander, ” Vallery Markel, is so obsessed with pizza that she co-hosts her own podcast, Pie Talk, in the vein of NPR’s Car Talk in her spare time. The crust on her pizza, a cracker-thin sourdough stratum that most closely resembles her native melting-pot Mid-West style, comes loaded with farm-fresh bitter rapini, chile flake, and provolone along with a winter-appropriate kale, bacon, potato, and smoked mozzarella number set in a slick of cream. It helps that Markel trained under Italian matriarch Cathy Whims, who taught her the secrets to the perfect meatball pie, crowned with excellent, golfball-sized pork rounds bound in garlic, thyme and leftover pizza sourdough crumbs.
