The former executive chef of the Big Mamma team, Peppe Cutraro is now rolling out his dough high up on Rue de Bagnolet, where his personal pizzeria was voted “the best pizzeria in Europe” in both 2021 and 2022 by the transalpine guide 50 Top Pizza. Still as unfazed as ever in front of his mosaic tile wood-fired oven, the Neapolitan chef and his gang send out all kinds of delicious pizzas with fluffy crusts, prepared using custom-ground Nuvola flour: an iconic Campione del Mondo covered in yellow tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, cured ham, provolone, fig jam and toasted almonds; a fried Montanara di Gabry e Babbo, combining slow-roasted tomatoes, mozzarella, grana padano and basil; a cheesy Burrata Mulitcolore pizza topped with stracciatella from Puglia, pesto, plus red and yellow datterini tomatoes. To round out the meal, there’s a massive chocolate and amaretto cake or a mouthwatering baba au rhum with whipped cream and candied cherries. And for all those who are hesitant to trudge all the way over to the 20th arrondissement, the pizzaiolo also serves his beautiful pies at Casa Di Peppe (Rue Saint-Jacques) and Peppe Martyrs (in the Martyrs neighborhood). // Ninsu
