Pretty pretty good Margherita at Jill for lunch, cooked almost perfectly. It was a bit massive. Watched the pizzaiolo as he made 300g panetti aka dough balls. I do 220g! Also a lot of fior di latte (nicely distributed this time) so I don't think I'll need a lot for dinner tonight. Could have used a pinch more salt but apart from that it was the best pizza I had at Jill yet!
First pizza of the year! A rare pepperoni pizza! Pepperoni is impossible to buy in Germany, it just doesn't exist here. BUT: I found some pepperoni in the freezer that has been in there since I smuggled it home from NYC illegally long ago. But it was still fine. Long story short: RONICUPS!!!
Thank you all so much for following my pizza madness and liking so many of my posts this year! 2017 was exciting! I travelled to the birthplace of pizza in Naples for the second time and had pizza on the other side of the world in Japan. I finally got a proper oven so I can make neapolitan pizza at home. Whee! A lot of other good pizza unrelated stuff happened too. So: Here are my nine most liked posts of 2017. Personally I'd have chosen some others too but who am I to question the highly scientific routine behind the state of the art website that created this collage! Anyways: I wish all of you a Happy New Year and all the best for 2018!
p.s.: One of these is FAKE PIZZA! Can you spot it?

Fantastic pizza from Gino @sorbillo in Napoli! One with mozzarella, ricotta and salame and one with mozzarella, salsiccia picante and parmegiano. We didn't have to wait for too long and were placed at a long swung table. When we were seated I noticed my chair was standing on a glass window that allowed to see inside the basement. Swipe for all the pics!
When I came to Napoli for the first time two years ago I went to a lot of pizzerias but missed out on Da Michele because they were closed when we planned to go on our last evening. Bummer! So when we returned to Napoli this weekend the first thing we did was to get pizza at Da Michele! And of course it was fabulous! Was it worth waiting in line for two (!) hours in a city that has outstanding pizza on every corner? I don't know. Anyways: Another bucket list item completed!
