Matzo Madness: A Culinary Adventure During Passover


Rate this post

Passover is a time when culinary creativity reaches new heights for the Jewish community, especially with the versatile use of matzo. From cheesy matzo lasagna to decadent peanut and caramel brittle, the possibilities are endless. For 10-year-old Hudson Greenstein, one of his top picks during Passover is matzo pizza.

Two years ago, Hudson found himself craving pizza while out with his father in Armonk, N.Y. They decided to swing by Nick’s Pizza & Ice Cream for a salad, sparking the brilliant idea of matzo pizza. Last year, Hudson brought his vision to life with a pop-up event, Yalla Matzah Pizza, at Nick’s. Utilizing Nick’s ingredients and oven expertise, the matzo pizzas turned out crispier and more reminiscent of thin-crust pizza than anything he could achieve at home.

Hudson diligently prepared over 400 pizzas on Streit’s matzos, and the response was overwhelming. Due to popular demand, he has expanded his venture this year with a second pop-up at Frankie’s Pizza & Restaurant in Merrick, N.Y.

Reflecting on his first year as a pizza entrepreneur, Hudson shared, “I was nervous but excited to showcase it to my friends. The difference in taste from baking in a pizza oven is remarkable—it truly tastes like authentic pizza.”
