Super thin crispy taste of Italy

I love pizza. Who doesn't right. I used to be one of the guys who loved any pizza, thick base, thin base, it was all the same to me. Elle and Susan (Elle's sister) are pizza snobs and converted me to proper pizza. They say less is more, and this is very true, especially to pizza. Mozzarella and tomato and a dash of basil is all I need. I've found some amazing pizza spots right here in Cape Town. Have a gander at my post about NY Slice Pizza if you don't believe me.

So what's different about Pizza Piaggio? The pizza maker is Mario Gaito, who runs his little pizzeria straight out of his three wheeled tuk-tuk. Genius. He is a sucker for tradition and getting the pizza just right. So expect only the best mozarella, tomatoes imported from Italy and italian suasage.

I bought one of his pizzas one day at the Neighbourgoods Market, and the pizza was fantastic (super thin and crispy and super delicious), Mario is a fantastic foodie to chat to while you wait for your pizza. The only gripe I have is the cost. Sixty bucks for what could be called a small pizza (they only have one size, sadness). Otherwise a pretty darn awesome pizza truck. Try it, at least once if you're a mizer like me :)

They also cater for events and such, so give them a shout out on their Facebook page.
