our italian recipes

Just like we make ’em at our place! Many of these recipes are the same we follow everyday at our Italian-American restaurant in Somerville, MA. Others have been modified to be made at home easily, and are the product of our years of expertise and our love for homemade food. Either way, here you’ll find a collection of recipes for every use and occasion. Enjoy!

our spicy aioli sauce on a pizza

If you’re looking for the perfect way to give some of your favorite dishes a delicious creamy and spicy kick, I have the recipe you need. The Calabrian Chili Mayo I make at Mortadella Head is a creamy sauce made from Calabrian chili peppers. It’s used as a drizzle to finish our artisan pizza and it’s also used as the perfect spread for our big fat sandwiches. It’s so good it can be a great dipping sauce for just about anything.

This recipe is now one of my most requested appetizers whenever I am going to a holiday event. And while it is a bit time consuming (it can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour to make this), it’s oh so worth it.

hot crab dip

What Is Hot Crab Dip? The next best thing to buffalo chicken dip, that’s what it is. It literally is just buffalo chicken dip, minus the chicken, and adding the crab. And the result? The most delicious spin on this dip that you could ever take. I guarantee you'll be hooked.
