In Napoli, it’s the local snack food. In Parigi, it’s the latest concept that’s making gourmet diners crawl up to Magnà, a teeny tiny spot with a mere six barstools. They come for the portafoglio (“wallet”) pizza, an ancestor of the Neapolitan round, for which the head cuisïolo Julien Serri traveled across Italy in search of the perfect recipe! The result? Flour from Molino Magri in Mantua (where you’ll find the best wheatin all of Italy) for the dough, products sourced with extreme care (tuna, herbed ham, San Marzano or Piennolo del Vesuvio tomatoes, etc.), and then it gets folded… four times! Take your pick of one of five options, including the atomic Antica Mortadella with salame rosa (the grandfather of mortadella), fior di latte, pistachio pesto and bergamot-infused olive oil, or the thin Margherita with San-Marzano, pecorino romano and local (yes! from the Yvelines department) mozzarella! Worth noting: the portafoglio also comes in a (well) rolled version called the rotolò. // M.S.
