Reporter Food: Amici’s Kitchen and Living Room in Berkley
(Crystal A. Proxmire, March 20, 2021)
Berkley, MI – Amici’s Kitchen and Living Room serves up incredible gourmet pizza as well as sandwiches and sides. I was excited to try The Emilia – a pizza topped with arugula, thinly sliced prosciutto, shredded mozzarella, goat cheese, herb tomato sauce, walnuts, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. This recipe made for a complex tasting experience, with many flavors and textures stepping into the forefront.
Other signature pies include the Roasted Eggplant Pizza with eggplant, tomatoes, herb tomato sauce, fresh shredded mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil and chili flakes; the Pesto Pizza featuring broccoli, housemade pesto, fresh tomatoes, roasted garlic, ricotta, and mozzarella cheeses: and the Caribbean Jerk Chicken Pizza with spicy jerk chicken, peanut-ginger sauce, pineapples, and mozzarella cheese.
There’s also a section with Chef Tim’s favorites, with selections like the Eastern Market, the Campania, and the Pep in Your Step.
In addition to the pizza, I ordered their oven-roasted cauliflower which was made with lemon, olive oil, parsley, and fried caper bread crumbs. Amici’s also has baked provolone, hometown picnic wings, Asian glazed pork belly and more.
Amici’s Pizza and Living Room is located at 3249 Twelve Mile Road in Downtown Berkley. Check out their full menu online at https://amiciskitchenandlivingroom.com/.
