From Flour To Table: Pizza and Fascinating Facts You Might Not Know!

Fresh out of the oven, a sumptuous delight is waiting for you to relish. Your senses are overwhelmed with the distinct aroma emitted from the bread mingling with the irresistible scent from the cheese and its toppings. You simply cannot wait to chow down on this pizza! Yes, there is nothing better than sinking your teeth into the heavenly pie topped with generous heaps of cheese and sauce!

Famous around the globe, pizza has won the heart of even the most discerning diners! If you are one of them, it’s time to indulge in our “bite-sized” facts and figure out how pizza travels the world and ends up on your table! 

 

1/ The Origin of Pizza 

Click here to view Pizza at Luce Osteria ContemporaneaImage Credit: Luce Osteria Contemporanea

As pizza becomes ubiquitous, there are countless stories of how it was invented and in fact, most of them are half-truths, fables or hard-nosed opinions. Pizza is originated from Italy? It might stun you a little but Italy cannot really take the credit for inventing pizza! According to archeological evidence, pizza could be originated from the Middle East. It is believed that the pizza nowadays is actually a part of the lineage of Greek yeasted flatbreads (which is called “pitta” in Greek)! 

2/ What Makes Italian Pizza Become Popular All Around The World? 

Click here to view Pizza at Positano Risto Publika Image Credit: Positano Risto 

It is no doubt that Italy has successfully made pizza a phenomenal dish that is loved by foodies internationally. But have you ever wondered how?  Pizza lovers would be familiar with the story of how Queen Margherita got obsessed with pizza and made it the national dish! However, pizza scholar Zachary Nowak believes that it is hardly the truth! The fact is, during World War II, many allied soldiers stationed in Italy fell in love with this dish and brought with them the recipes when they got back home. Also, numerous Italian immigrants have traveled the world with this delectable delicacy. In the sixties, it was a big hit in America and well-known since then! 

 

3/ What Are The Differences Between Italian Pizza and American Pizza? 

Click here to view Pizza at Vineria.ITImage Credit: Vineria.IT

You might fall in love with both yet what distinguishes them from each other? Well, the key difference is actually in the sauce itself! While American prefers to use slow-cooked tomato sauce, Italian loves to use puréed fresh tomato instead! The crust and shape are also important characteristics to differentiate the two versions. To be called ‘authentic Italian’, the pizza must be round and no more than 13 and three-quarter inches in diameter with a crust of three-quarters of an inch thick or less. The dough must be kneaded by hand and prepared from traditional types of flour, yeast, salt and tomatoes.

4/ Where To Find A Sumptuous Pizza in Klang Valley?

3 Dishes That Will Sure Gratify Your Palate at Luce Osteria Contemporanea

Having been a big fan of heritage and colonial buildings, I turned myself into a frequent visitor to Old Malaya – located at Jalan Raja Chulan, right after my first time here. The nearly 100-year-old building was skillfully revitalized into gorgeous heritage-modeled dining spots, making it one of the prominent culinary hub for foodies in KL. 

Luce Osteria Contemporanea is one of the restaurants here that won my heart! What’s better than sipping a glass of cocktail, taking in the majestic beauty of KL tower while savoring classic Italian dishes? Of course, there are dishes here that you should not miss out and I’m willing to share with you in this post! 

 

1/ Il Gran Tagliere

Click here to view Luce Osteria Contemporanea

The first dish that you definitely should not forgo is this II Gran Tagliere which is a selection of premium cold cuts with cheeses, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes and caper berries! Featuring imported cold cuts cured for at least 6 to 18 months such as Parma Ham (18 months), Mortadella, Coppa, Salame Napoli, Smoked Peck and Italian Honey Ham, the dish totally satiated my taste buds. I was also impressed to know the cheeses here are specifically curated and imported from different regions of Italy. A delectable delight!

2/ Sole Pizza (Sun-Shaped Pizza)

Click here to view Sun-Shaped Pizza at Luce Osteria Contemporanea

The next dish – Sole Pizza, has such an eye-catching presentation that you might not be able to take your eyes off it! This interesting pizza is also known as the Sun Pizza because of its sun-like shape. Topped with Mozzarella cheese, tomatoes sauce, rocket salad, sliced tomatoes and baked using imported Italian wood-fired oven, the pizza had unique and smoky flavors which were out-standing! The Burrata Pugliese on top was a fresh light Italian cheese which really mingled well with the pizza for its an unusually soft texture.

3/ La Porchetta

The final dish, as well as my top favorite dish, is this La Porchetta Using high-quality suckling pig to debone and stuff with pork sausage, Mortadella, capsicums, artichokes and Mozzarella cheese, this traditional Italian dish had a moist texture and packed with flavors. The beef stew cooked with Parma Ham was served along to further accentuate the taste of the dish, making it a hard-to-resist delicacy!
