Pizza in Italy, 2015

skfniom

When you order a pizza, it’s usually the size of a dinner plate and you eat it with a knife and fork. Unless you get a pre-made pie on a per slice basis, most pizzas are made to order. The crust is thin, chewy and tossed by hand. By far the most popular flavor is the Margherita, a simple pie that uses nothing but cheese, tomatoes and a fresh sprig of basil. The cheese in particular is always fresh, so it has a very distinct flavor as opposed to buying franchised pizzas back home.  Pair it with some house wine (vino de la casa) or beer (called birra in Italian).

  1. So you’re actually in Italy right now? Damn, there was I thinking you’d cooked that thing when I saw it on Twitter! Looks good. I used to live in Spain; wine and pizza is definitely the way forward, and VERY southern Europe. And I miss the price of wine out there!
