Le Guide Fooding’s Best Pizza of 2018
Despite the absence of Graziella Buontempo (who is busy with a secret project…), Pierre Jancou’s former bird shop turned chic pizzeria (black marble tables, Art Nouveau mosaic tiles) continues to spit out the best pizzas in Paris. Well made, plump, fluffy and divinely garnished, come for a taste of the eternal Margherita, the explosive Sanguinella (Piennolo del Vesuvio tomatoes, ’nduja, fior di latte and mint), or the surprising Carbonarammare (guanciale from black pigs from Caserta, leeks, egg, black pepper and katsuobushi), not to mention the Zuccona made with fried dough and topped with pumpkin, ricotta, Gorgonzola and crispy sage… Yum yum yum! To ensure a happy ending: fried beignets made using the same dough (flour + water), drizzled in melted dark chocolate… J.G.
FEELING THIRSTY? You’re invited to take a tour of Italy, from Piedmont (Dolcetto Réva at €7 a glass) to Campagna (a red Quirico from Sabino Loffredo at €44 a bottle), with a stop in Umbria along the way (a white from Le Piccolo Podere del Ceppaiolo at €40).
PRICE: Pizzas €12-22.
