Confessions of a Slice: A Trilogy on the Life of a Cheese Pizza from Joe’s Pizza – Part 1 of 3

Dawn of the Dough

As day breaks over the pulsating heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I find myself on the precipice of a transformation. Here, within the sacred confines of the legendary Joe’s Pizza, a metamorphosis occurs. From a humble ball of dough to a tantalizing slice of cheese pizza – this is my genesis, my birth by fire.

My origin begins with the dough, a simple mixture of water, yeast, salt, and flour. It’s a humble beginning, a stark contrast to the grandeur I am destined for. Yet, there’s beauty in this simplicity, a testament to the culinary prowess that makes Joe’s Pizza the best in New York and thus, as the locals assert, the best in the world.

From the skilled hands of pizza maestros, I’m shaped and molded, my rough edges smoothed out until I’m a perfect circle, a canvas ready to be adorned. The oven, my fiery crucible, awaits me. It’s here, amidst the searing heat and the glow of the embers, that I will find my true form.

The anticipation is palpable as I’m slid into the oven. The heat envelops me, a blazing cocoon that transforms my doughy exterior into a golden crust. The initial shock quickly gives way to a sense of euphoria. I am becoming, shedding my doughy cocoon to emerge as a golden, bubbling slice of pizza.
