Tralia SRQ: Awesome Sourdough Starter Based Detroit and Individual Thin Crust Pizzas, Pasta, and More! Pop-Ups Sunday and Monday at 99 Bottles Downtown Sarasota, FL and in Gulf Gate Thurs, Fri, and Sat.


Tralia’s Detroit Style Pizza with Frico Crust. Shown with Cup and Char Pepperoni, drizzle of hot honey, and fresh oregano.

If you’re looking to satisfy that pizza craving or want something you can totally sink your teeth into that’s perfect for movie night, or watching the game with family or friends? Tralia SRQ, owned by Anthony Petralia serves excellent pizzas at pop-up locations in Sarasota, currently 5 nights a week using a homemade sourdough starter. In addition to excellent Detroit style (baked in a classic steel pan as in Detroit, the kind the automakers use for parts, nuts, and bolts), the result is a deep dish Sicilian with a signature “Frico” crust, the result of the Wisconsin Brick Cheese that is a hallmark of Detroit style pizza–typically Brick is blended with Mozzarella, as well as placed around the edges of the pizza pan so the heat from the pan helps crisp this cheese up and infuse it into the golden crust, making something truly decadent. Their thin crust pies are good as well, my favorite being the Cup and Char Pepperoni with oregano and hot honey. Tralia also does appetizers ranging from Arancini and Meatballs to Caesar salad and Polenta Crusted Wings, freshly made Pastas like Bolognese, and even seafood like local Snapper Puttanesca, and desserts like Cannoli and Tiramisu. If you are in Sarasota and looking for great pizza–either go have it at 99 Bottles, a fun neighborhood pub with beer and wine and a great vibe, or get it to go from there, or Your Culinary Place in Gulf Gate. Be sure to tell them Fred Bollaci sent you!
