The best panna cotta in Texas? In the world???!!!

From the “see it jiggle” department…

And we know when it’s good. At Dough Pizzeria Napoletana in San Antonio, pizzaiolo Doug Horn makes one of the best if not the best panna cotta we have ever tasted.

It’s kinda like the old saying, “if you can’t play guitar better than the gas station attendant one mile outside of Nashville, don’t even bother going into town.” The litmus test for every Italian chef is her/his panna cotta. If it don’t wiggle (keeping its shape), don’t even bother going into town.

Bravo Doug!

Doug is famous for his authentic Neapolitan pizza. He serves Terredora Falanghina, Fiano d’Avellino, and Greco di Tufo by the glass — three classic Neapolitan white wines, made from ancient grape varieties recently revived by an archeologist of southern Italian winemaking, Lucio Mastroberardino (imported by Vias Imports).
