Thursday night I had dinner with my friend Leah (thanks to her great recommendation) at Moustache Pitza. There are three locations in the city, we went to the one in the West Village. Specializing in thin, fresh-out-of-the-oven pita bread, this budget-friendly Middle Eastern was the perfect place to catch up with a friend. We ordered the babaganough, with one pita each, and a pitza: a pizza made using one of the pitas as the crust. We went with the signature Moustache pitza which is topped with red bell pepper, tomato, onion, parsley, chili, and fresh mozzarella.
Although I am not a huge fan of eggplant, I really enjoyed the babaganough. It was very smoky and paired nicely with the puffy, light pita.
The pitza was delicious. The various flavors of the toppings, combined with the thin, chewy pita crust, all served on a fun wooden dish: perfection. I will definitely be back to try some more of their offerings.
