Take a roll into pizza history


In the history of New York pizza, "hippie rolls" are a footnote from the 1960s. "A lot of pizza places had them back then. Hippies mostly bought them because they were so cheap," says Dominic Tamborra of the rolled-up pizza cylinders his dad sold in Brooklyn. Tamborra has resurrected these delicious artifacts at his own eatery, Dom's Pizza.

The new versions are $3.50 -- about five times more expensive than during the dawning of the age of Aquarius. But they feature the same pepperoni, sausage and cheese rolled up in pizza dough that's open on the ends (unlike strombolis, which are closed). They come in veggie and chicken versions, too. Also popular are the Philly-cheese-steak pizzas ($14.95) laden with beef, onions and extra mozzarella. There no delivery, but catering can be arranged, with even more options than the dine-in menu.
