Day 26, Pizza Month 2011 - Pizzeria Brandi (Naples, Italy)

DAY 26: OCTOBER 26th, 2011

LOCATION: Pizzeria Brandi (Salita Sant'Anna di Palazzo, 2, Naples, Italy)

ORDER: 1/2 of an individual Margherita

GUEST: Robin Rothman

1. Robin and I made the most of this rainy day by visiting the ruins of Pompeii and a total of three pizzerias on Via Dei Tribunali (Port' Alba, Di Matteo, Sorbillo) and finally Pizzeria Brandi. Unfortunately, the rain wiped out our chances to see anything once we reached the top of Mount Vesuvius.
2. Pizzeria Brandi used to be called Pietro...e basta così, which means "Peter ...and That's Enough." While named this, Chef Raffaele Esposito created a pizza fit for a queen, Queen Margherite, to be exact. He made it the colors of the Italian flag - green (basil), white (mozzarella), and red (tomato) and named it the Margherita. She loved it in 1889 and I love it 2011.

Better you should be rained-out at Vesuvius than hit with lava like happened that bad day, long ago.
