Food&Wine | What It’s Like to Eat at the World’s Best Pizzeria

By | Rassegna stampa | No Comments

Be prepared to reserve your table two months in advance to dine at Pizzeria I Masanielli, located in a sleepy Italian city known for its buffalo mozzarella.

Though you might expect to find the world’s best pizzeria in Naples, as it’s the birthplace of the popular dish, the place ranked the best by the 50 Top Pizza guide is actually in a small city called Caserta.

Located about 40 minutes north of Naples on Italy’s A1 highway, the city’s main claim to fame is the Reggia di Caserta, the royal palace built in the mid-1700s by Bourbon King Charles III to rival Versailles. Caserta is also known for mozzarella di bufala, which is considered far superior to the average cow’s milk mozzarella (in Italy known as fior di latte). And where there’s high-quality mozzarella di bufala, it’s only logical that there would be high-quality pizza.


The Best Pizzerias in the World

Americans love pizza. Several years ago, a Harris Poll, surveying more than 2,000 U.S. adults, found that if those polled could eat only one food for the rest of their lives, 21% of them would choose  pizza – more than any other food by far. (These are the American cities with the most pizza places.)

But it’s not just Americans, of course. Pizza, which originated from humble beginnings as a food for the poor in southern Italy, has become one of the world’s most popular foods, made (in one form or another) and enjoyed in every corner of the globe.
