In the beginning was pizza, and pizza revealed itself, and dwelt among us. Then there was crust filled with buffalo ricotta, and men saw that it was right to worship it. Then burrata came, a whole burrata, in the middle of pizza, to complete the creation. And it was Saturday evening, and they all ate, and they saw it was right to eat it…
Forgive us for using a sacred tone for such a profane topic, but we really eat a pizza like this at Fratelli Pummarò, and we want you to do the same.
This pizzeria – which name sounds vaguely Neapolitan – is hidden among the alleys of San Salvario, offering a wide choice of pizzas with a good value for money. So, at the first useful opportunity, we decided to try it. Ok, the place may be a little small (during the weekend there are two shifts: before or after 21:30) and the take away is one of their strong points (last time we ate there, we counted at least 20 delivery men in about an hour). But we strongly suggest you to have a seat and go where your heart takes you: after all, why to take one of the pizzas on the menu, when you can choose a custom one? You can order from the most classical to the richest toppings, typical of Naples and of all Italy. So last time we decided to create a custom pizza: we started from “Ripiena” (crust filled with ricotta cheese, cherry tomatoes and rocket salad) and we added a sumptuous whole Apulian burrata (although not artisanal). And even if Fratelli Pummarò is not the only place that offers burrata, it serves it pretty well, so that we invite you to try the same: the most stoic people will thank us (the shier ones may prefer a classic Margherita with stuffed crust). Also, the idea of adding ricotta salata on a Diavola was a brilliant one: indeed, the fresh but sapid ricotta matches well with pepperoni.
And despite some little imperfections (the dough of some pizzas was a little bit over roasted, the cover very basic, and once we were seat near the doorway), the richness of the ingredients made us forget taking dessert; but those ordered by our fellow diners looked really good.
To sum up: a good Neapolitan pizza, rich in ingredients and taste, with a good value for money. Try it, and hurry up: dinnertime is coming; it is well known that every meal should be kept holy. Amen.
