If you’ve been craving carbs during the stay-at-home pandemic, then SCV Foodie suggests an addition to all the sourdough and banana bread baking we’ve seen on Instagram lately.
The family owned and operated Italia Panetteria & Deli on Newhall Ranch Road bakes its rolls and breads daily each morning. Among the selections is its Pizza Bread, a deep, thick-crusted bread topped with a savory tomato sauce and dusted off with parmesan cheese.
The dense bread can be eaten by itself or add a bit of mozzerella cheese and toppings for a DIY pizza.
At $5.49, the Pizza Bread is a bargain because it’s heavy and filling and only the heariest of appetites can tackle in on sitting. There are limited quantities available on a daily basis so once they sell out, they’re gone.
