A friend of my father’s is planning on opening his very own pizzaria. We had the fortune to be invited to sample his creations. Can’t wait for his pizza shop Com’í¨ Va Pizzaria to be opened! I’m sure it’s going to be a hit! I mean this guy is so passionate about Pizzas, he actually spent 3 months in Italy working in a pizzaria!
You know many Singaporeans, yours truly included, like to dump away the bits of crust that has no topping on them. Apparently in Italy, people eat the outer crust first. The mark of a good pizza is that the base has to be good. So if they eat the outer crust first, they will be able to judge if the pizza is good. If the crust is bad, out goes the pizza.
Another thing I found out is that when it comes to pizza, Italians don’t like loading the pizzas with too much meat. It’s just plain honest simple ingredients. I’ve always wondered about this. Sometimes when when I’m at a pizzaria in Singapore and craving for something meaty, I can never find one that sounds meaty enough.
Anyway enough of pizza talk. On to the photos!
There’s the pizza just before it was taken off the special pizza oven
Whoa this one is my favourite hands down!!! Look at the oooozy egg! It also has a hint of truffle aroma thanks to the truffle oil used. When the pizzaria is open, I shall be able to have the entire pizza to myself instead of having to share!!
Before it goes into the special oven
About 2 or 3 minutes after it has gone in
About 5 minutes and this super hot special pizza oven has cooked the pizza!
The base of the pizza has to look like this for it to be perfect
The special pizza oven
And some thinly sliced cucumber
looks so divine!!!
just noticed the oozing egg yolk….always a draw for me 🙂
It’s a huge draw for me!
oozing egg yolk and truffle oil… oh good lordy. where does your friend intend to set up shop? 🙂
He’s still trying to search for a place. Will update when the shop’s ready!
How I wish I had that special pizza oven to make pizzas every day and say goodbye to mediocre pizzas from pizza hut/canadian pizza (wow that’s a lot of ‘pizzas’ in my sentence)! Your friends business sounds promising.
Thanks! I’ll be sure to let him know! Btw the special pizza oven costs only $200…or was it 200 euros… 🙂 This is only for home use. He will be getting a woodfired oven for his pizzaria.
Aarrgghh I am jealous! Those pizzas look good! You have to take me to the place when it opens!
Sure! Btw you haven’t billed me for the last meal!!!!!
