PIZZA- Italy!


    Another one of our must do’s while in Italy was; eat pizza! Everyone knows Italy for its pasta, its bread, it gelato and other fine desserts, and also its PIZZA!!! I mean they practically invented it, hahaha I mean they did, they did invent it. So while travelling through Italy, go for it, have yourself a pie.

     Our first pizza experience was in Venice at a place beside our hotel called Trattoria All’Aquila. We were wooed in by the maitre d, and seated. We figured on splitting one, but were told that they were small, and got one each instead. He lied, they were huge, but they were delicious! The thing that makes Italian pizza different is the crust, so super thin that you have to eat it with a knife and fork, or fold it over itself, either way is acceptable. So we both eat half our pizza, and stack the other half ready to wrap, mmm, we got lunch for tomorrow, but I guess there are not used to take out there, after clearing our plates, we watch as he slid the entire contents into the garbage. It was a sad, sad day for pizza lovers everywhere.

    This was not our last pizza experience mind you, there was that one in Florence in our hostel, and the one in Rome by the Coliseum, and they just kept getting better and better. Do yourself a favor however and share, they are large, and please, please whatever you do, ask him to wrap it up, don’t expect him to know because you have neatly stacked it in a take home manner. Actually I have an even better idea, use napkins.
