Our neighborhood here in Florence, Italy happens to have the BEST pizza in all of Italy. The little restaurant is on a side street and it is called Piccolo Cesare. Like almost all restaurants in Europe, it is dog friendly. We have been SO many times, we have tried ALL of the pizzas on the menu! Some of the pizzas are made with zucchini flour (those are our favorite)!
There is one guy that makes all of the pizzas for the entire restaurant in a wood fired oven. He carefully placed and rotated each pizza while also preparing dough and gently placing each ingredient on the next pie. When the pizzas were done, he removed them from the oven and placed them on the top plate of an enormous stack of plates. So if you were with a large group, pizzas would arrive at your table one by one as they were ready.
One night, Chris decided to wing it and ask for a few things to be switched up on his pizza. Our server came back to say the chef didn’t recommend that combination!
Now that we have told you about Piccolo Cesare we can tell you the funny part. Do you speak Italian? If so, you know that Piccolo Cesare Pizza translates in English to Little Caesar’s Pizza! So we went all the way to Italy to eat at Little Caesar’s Pizza!!
