800 Degrees chef/owner Anthony Carron is almost ready to fire his custom Stefano Ferrara pizza oven at 800 To-Go, his take away operation adjacent to 800 Degrees in Westwood Village. He's waiting to pass final inspections, though plans to open doors on September 3 at 11 a.m. But, aside from to-go orders, there's one very special reason to visit. Carron will debut a new item called panuozzo, which is basically a pizza sandwich made with pizza dough folded in half and filled with various ingredients.
Specifically, Carron bakes a round pizza dough, which puffs up like a pita. The dough is cut into two disks through the center (one pizza dough makes two panuozzo), a filling such as braised lamb or porchetta is added onto half the dough, then the dough is folded in half and finally crisped up in a panini grill.
Pending final inspections, 800 To-Go might open at earliest on Thursday with a sneak peek of Carron's new panuozzo menu. Follow 800 Degrees on Facebook for confirmation.
