There are a lot of good pizzerias in the Sacramento area, including Masullo at the edge of Land Park. There, for the past two years, Robert Masullo and his crew have prepared a dinner menu starring Neapolitan-style pizza.
Now the restaurant is offering a lunch menu from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring six kinds of pizza (cooked in an almond wood-burning oven), three sandwiches, and appetizers and salads.
Why the addition of lunch?
"To help spread the word that we're here," Masullo said. "Hopefully our lunch crowd will be more inclined to return for dinner. It would be great if we were a little busier, but everybody is saying that."
Robert Masullo once worked at a bakery in Denmark, learning the secrets of dough. His travels through Italy led him to Naples, "where I spent a lot of time in pizzerias, learning the menus. That's why I opened the restaurant. (Pizza-making) ties in well with my baking skills."
Masullo is at 2711 Riverside Blvd., Sacramento; (916) 443-8929, www.masullopizza.com.
