A pizza that's a head of its time

We'll round up some of Philly's odd but tasty pizza options later this week at, but there's one variety that faithful correspondent Drew Lazor says is on the menu for only a limited time, so get on it.

It's the head-cheese pizza at Zavino, at 13th and Sansom Streets.

You read that right: It stars head cheese - which is nothing about the cheese but all about the head of a calf and/or pig. Chef Carlos Aparicio is thin-slicing his own housemade head cheese and adding it to a pie with horseradish bechamel, fresh horseradish shavings, chopped arugula, red onion, and mozzarella.

Head over to Zavino, where it's a special only for the remainder of December.
