Speaking of pizza, Kermit’s Bake Shoppe introduced The Bruno, an epic pizza inspired by products procured at Di Bruno Bros. Ingredients include: Applewood smoked bacon, shredded brussels sprouts, truffle-scented crème fraiche,
FIVE kinds of cheeses (Fresh mozzarella, grana padano and pecorino, Fontina Val D’aosta, Fiore Sardo) and finished with fleur de sel, a truffle balsamic reduction and truffle honey. Good lord!
