There is something about the iconic pizza that draws us to Italy. Maybe it’s the roundness or perhaps the sense of comfort we get from eating the well known Italian dish.
Here’s some fun facts about pizza: The largest pizza ever made was 122 ft. and 8 inches in diameter. The pizza needed 9,920 lb of flour, 198 lb of salt, 3968 lb of cheese, and 1,984 lb of tomato sauce (you obviously won’t be making one this big on your Italian holiday.) Also did you know Italian is the most popular type of ethnic food in America, obviously their taste buds are in the right place! Hopefully this puts you in the mood for some Italian pizza making fun.
The guests at our villa’s have the opportunity to make their own pizzas in the traditional pizza making way. This is done using a traditional oven featured in the picture below. Cooking on holiday is a great way to try out local produce and flavors otherwise missed. Even if cooking isn’t usually your forte this kind of experience can help you connect with Italian culture through a classic dish.
