I headed over to La Boulangerie (4600 Magazine St, New Orleans)this morning, expressly to buy a baguette. I ended up with a baguette, a brioche, an almond croissant, and a pepperoni pizza. The pizza, just $4.20, was easily the most delicious thing in the store.
I don’t know if LB offers pizzas regularly, or if these were just leftover “baker’s treats”. The fresh-from-the-oven pizzas weren’t in a display case with a label; they were arrayed atop a display case, at eye and nose level, covered in pepperoni and olives/jalapenos. The crust was crisp-chewy, with all the flavor of a good loaf of bread.
UPDATE: LB sells pizzas on weekdays only; the pizzas sell out rather quickly. If you call and ask nicely, they’ll hold one for afternoon pickup.
