Gemelli’s Italian Market

Gemelli’s Italian Market is known for its tasty subs and homemade pasta—and it’s a great place to pick up frozen spinach ravioli or Bolognese sauce for later. In August, the traditional Italian market in Gaithersburg started turning out fresh-baked pizzas with a mix of aged whole-milk mozzarella and fresh mozzarella under the sauce. The pies are cooked in an Italian version of a deck oven (the classic pizza oven with several shelves), and many of the ingredients are imported from Italy, including flour and tomatoes. With a thin and crispy crust, the pizzas—which come in 12- and 16-inch sizes—are a cross between Italian-style and New York-style pies, says Gemelli’s owner Maurizio Calcagno. Toppings include anchovies, dolce picante cherry peppers, sausage that’s been ground and seasoned in-house, and pepperoni “cups” that curl up and get crispy on the edges when they’re baked. Try the Diavola with imported hot Calabrian chili peppers, soppressata (salami) and basil. If you can’t make it out of the store with your pizza, there’s an eat-in area with about 30 seats.
