Pizza is made from the most simplest ingredients that it should be a home run, slam dunk, puck in net (Go Bruins!) every time. Sadly I've tasted more average pizzas than success slices.
But then there's Gusta Pizza in Florence, Italy and they get it right. Simply one of the best meals I've ever eaten and completely affordable too! Pizza flavors are based off of simple ingredients that don't combine more than 2 or 3 toppings so each flavor is actually tasted.
I think one of the biggest lessons is to use fresh. When you're only combining three big staple ingredients you need to bring your A game with each flavor. That's fresh dough, hand tossed, fresh tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and touch of basil. The idea is that the flavors complement each other as opposed to competing for the spotlight.
And these are the guys that make it happen - day after day, pizza after pizza. I think we can learn from them, fresh makes it best!
