Oro Pomodoro Pizza Rockville, MD

Just across from the library at Rockville’s busy “Town Center”, you’ll find “Oro Pomodoro”.  This place prides itself on serving authentic Italian food including Maryland’s first VPN (Verace Pizza Napoletana) certified pizza.  On the surface, it sounds right with San Marzano tomatoes, caputo flour, and buffalo mozzarella baked in a 900 degree wood fired brick oven.  The taste, however, doesn’t match these high expectations.    In fact, I would only rank Oro Pomodoro to be the 3rd best pizza in Rockville (Pizza CS, Matchbox)

One clue as to how this pizza doesn’t reach VPN expectations comes from it’s disregard for basil on the Margharita pizza.  The sauce and cheese were perfectly proportioned, but unlike their website photos showing basil over half the pizza, mine had only a single small leaf.  The crust was another area of concern as it was closer to a fast food textured crust than a brick oven one.  Once again, the ingredients were right but the preparation and proportionality were not up to VPN quality.
