Food V - The Story of a Pizza in Sicily

First, you go to Sicily.


Then you find a restaurant with a hot pizza oven and order a pizza each.

You obtain:

e una pizza capricciosa senza zucchini…IMG_4325  

You accompany the pizza with another Sicilian legend:IMG_4327

… or with a bottle of something more refined, unless a blonde nymph steals it from you before you get a chance…


… and you stuff your face… IMG_4326

…until you get to the last piece and you feel you are going to explode if you so much as smell it…IMG_4328






…but you just know you will regret it as soon as you walk out of that restaurant, so you just cannot bring yourself to leave it there…
