K! Pizzacone is now serving pizza in a cone during soft-opening. They will be officially opened on Monday, Feb 22, 2010.
On Fifth avenue between 32nd and 33rd street, in a mini store-front which was previously occupied by the Golosi gelato and it is few steps from the Jamba Juice.
Besides pizza in a cone they also offer breakfast cones with scrambled eggs, ham, bacon, etc. as well as dessert cones with ice cream, banana-flambe, chocolate and berries...
You can either order a large ($5.90) or a small size cone ($4.90). Add on ingredients are $0.50 for one and $1.00 two or more which is great deal. There are about twenty ingredients which you can customize your pizza in a cone; anything from sausage to BBQ chicken, from Prosciutto to Spicy Salami. There are also pre-selected versions like Mozzarella and Tomato, Four Cheese, Mushroom and Bacon, Pepperoni Grilled Chicken and more...
For the initial test I ordered a large cone with mozzarella and tomato sauce which is basically a Margherita without the basil. Once the combo is made it takes about 7-10 minutes in the oven for the cone to be ready but once you take a bite you wonder how come no one else came up with this concept before. I thought the dough was nice and crispy but a bit on the sweet side same goes for the tomato sauce.
This is a great meal on the go and you don't have to worry about the oil dripping or hands getting greasy. You can either get a cone sleeve or a little to go box which the cone fits perfectly.
I was told they are open from 7AM to Midnight once they are officially open on Monday. I can see this place becoming popular really quick so grab a cone soon before the lines...
