For close to a year, Proof Pizza and Pasta has been wow-ing South Floridians with its unique pizzas, homemade pastas and delicious desserts. While dinner service has been a hit from the beginning, it just launched lunch last week and we got a first look.
Much of the lunch menu looks similar to the dinner menu, but we aren’t complaining. Favorites like the Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with apple cider vinegar, gorgonzola, pecans and dried cranberries; White Pizza with mozzarella, ricotta, aged cheddar and parmesan and the Angel Hair Pasta with crab, calabrian chili and lemon breadcrumbs make the lunch menu along with the dinner menu.
But there are a handful of items only available at lunch. The hit of the table was the Calzone, stuffed with salumi, ricotta, tomatoes and basil — a lunch-only specialty. Other lunch exclusives included the messy but delicious Roasted Pork Sandwich topped with aioli and vegetables and served with a side salad; a different Angel Hair Pasta with bottarga, caviar and lemon zest; and the restaurant’s newest starter, Fresh Fava Bean Salad with whipped ricotta, olive oil, lemon infused bread crumbs and pickled onions.
Of course it wouldn’t be a proper meal without dessert and the restaurant’s now famous ice-cream filled Macaron makes its way to the lunch menu as well. The flavor rotates monthly but this month’s option was salted caramel topped with crunchy pretzels. We also got a taste of the warm Zeppole — aka donut holes aka munchkin aka best part ever — with vanilla citrus glaze. Get a tasty look at the meal in the pictures below and make sure to get a try for yourself every Monday through Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.
