New Mexico eats and Lo c a l Tre a t s Amore Pizza 1700 Central Ave. SW Albuquerque, NM 87102 Ever since I was first introduced to food pizza has been of one of my all time favor- ites. Amore pizza is made in a brick oven which makes for a crisp thin crust. The handmade mozzarella is creamy and the tomato sauce is light and tangy. My favor- ite is the primavera this is a pizza it has a light garlic sauce, mozzarella, then topped with mixed greens, avocado and a red chile vinaigrette. The trophy of the garden is a mouth watering choice. Roasted red peppers, artichokes, portabella mushrooms with the traditional tomato sauce or the rose sauce combination of the white cream sauce and red sauce. Amore offers a beautiful use of ingredients fresh and simple. I also had the dessert the Dolce de Amore a fried dough topped with honey, chocolate drizzle and sprinkled with slivered almonds and a dusting of powder sugar. These were little pillows of heaven on a plate the perfect ending to a amazing lunch. New Mexico eats and local Treats
