Napoli has its own pizza, New York – its slice, and in Chicago, it’s the deep dish pizza. But did you know that Buenos Aires, too, have their very delicious and authentic pizza style?
I didn’t until I went there. I was generally shocked to see how much Italian influence there is in Argentina. Perhaps even more than Spanish? Anyway, the thing is, it’s much easier to find a pizza than a Spanish omelet there. And I can guarantee you it will soon become a global food trend.
I forgot to mention that Buenos Aires is considered the pizza capital of South America. And I’m not arguing with this – I’d go there for pizza inn’s only. Ha, not even for steak! (Rio has much better ones, by the way) When talking about pizzas in Europe, we always discuss its base – is it thin enough?! Is it Italian?! Does it have milk like in some sketchy chain restaurants?
In Argentina, the main focal point of pizza isn’t the base. It’s the cheese and the amount of it. I highly recommend doing some googling and trying out a few different kinds, and today I’m happy to present you with one of them.
