Can a pizza really be a thing of influential beauty? Yes. Pizza is an ancient art, a national treasure, an artwork, a masterpiece. It is not something anyone can master, from your Pizza Huts across the world to the millions of pizzas being sold on menus all over the world in countless Italian restaurants, fastfood chains and takeaways, copycats, chances are you will always be able to find the trusty old pizza slice anywhere in the world, even on the most remote islands, if it is at all a tourist destination. But it is in the South of Italy, Napoli / Naples, to be exact, where this masterpiece of food was created. It is a national trasure, it is the ying to the yangs for Italians world over. And it was born right here, in Naples. The perfect, authentic real pizza? It is where the finest sprinkle of fresh basilico handcut by the hands of the expert pizzaiolo meets the perfect linger of Italian extra virgin olive oil, where the Mozzarella di Buffala slowly melts to release its fresh milk perfectly blending with the fresh Italian tomato sauce, it’s a symphony in the best sense of the word. And, the crust? That is something that Pizzaoili all over the world can argue about to their death, the perfect crust, but Pepe in Grani gets their crust so thin and billowy that not eating it all immediately would be a crime.
