Some folks like their lasagna cooked in a casserole pan. Please. Why opt for the norm when you can have that classic dish baked in a whole new way -- like on top of pizza dough? The "Little Italy," a New York¯style gourmet pie enhanced with lasagna, Italian sausage, meatballs, mozzarella, and ricotta, is only one of the delicacies you can acquire at the aptly named Pizza Girls (114 Clematis St., West Palm Beach, 561-833-4004). Owned by Phoebe Reckseit and Jen Morales (who also happen to be biker chicks), the 18-month-old pizzeria has been attracting quite a following for its inventive take on the New York slice. I can't say the stuff the PGs supply is traditional -- the "Tribeca burger" is a pizza laden with crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese, and ground beef -- but these entrepreneurs could probably sell the Brooklyn Bridge if they tried. And in fact they do, but their "Brooklyn Bridge" is topped with chicken, broccoli, and roasted red peppers. You go, girls!
