If you love fresh seafood, you’re going to fall head over heels for this original pie from Ops Pizza featuring cockles sourced straight from Spain. Ops Pizza, headed by chef Michael Fadem, is a Bushwick, Brooklyn operation that’s been serving up original sourdough pizza and natural wines since 2016. In this mouthwatering creation, the recipe calls for a combination of cockles paired with a red pepper tapenade sauce for a savory bite of briny flavor, and a topping of freshly grated ricotta salata, a pressed version of the Italian classic.
