Famous Words that we live by "Simplicity is the ultimate Sophistication" - in his wisdom he was unto something.
Was Leonardo speaking about Pizza? Or was he just speaking about Italian Food in general?
How simple is Pizza really and why do people make it so complicated with lot's of ingredients?
Italian's especially Napolitani, judge a great Pizza by ordering the Margherita Pizza, topped with Tomato Sauce and Fior di Latte (Mozzarella), why?
Well, it's quite simple really - the Dough has to be bubbly, fragrant, soft but not crispy or soggy.
The Tomato Sauce, rich and fruitful.
The Fior di Latte, soft and elastic.
Finished with Basil and a Drizzle a EVO (extra virgin oil)
These ingredients explode in mouth, making you want more.
