Kansas City’s Most Anticipated Bars and Restaurants in 2022 | Kansas City

Erik Borger just can’t get the pizza out of his system. A certified pizza enthusiast and founder of Il Lazzarone, the first restaurant in Kansas City to make DOC-approved Neapolitan-style pizzas, Borger left the restaurant industry 5 years ago, only for a trip with family in Italy inspired him to start making pizza. again – this time, for her children. He took those pizza nights home and decided to test the waters by opening Pizza Tascio last year in his hometown of St. Joseph, Missouri, as a take-out-only New York-style pizzeria, using a used parking converted with a small office as its kitchen. The pizza has all the same quality hallmarks of Il Lazzarone’s Neapolitan-style pizza, applied only to the large, collapsible slices that define New York-style pizza. It spent a lot of time perfecting its crust, which is thin but chewy and made with 00 flour, and tops it with California-grown San Marzano tomatoes. From there, he’ll add whatever a guest wants, using only whole-milk mozzarella cheese; meats from Paradise Meat Locker in Trimble, Missouri; and all the usual vegetable toppings. Its first Kansas City location will open this month in North Kansas City, just down the street from Chicken N’ Pickle in the former Mid America Title Loans building. (Photo courtesy of Pizza Tascio)
