Pizza 04, Di Matteo (again), Naples: not a looker this one, but there's a good reason.
It's my first (and perhaps last) fried pizza.
Made as a calzone but then deep fried, it's a fried marvel the North back in the UK would be proud of and with a combination of mozzarella, tomatoes, ricotta and ham, it was destined for greatness.
Unfortunately, as it's deep fried and therefore all smushed together it all merges into one, a little like a pizza smoothie if you will... We had our first pizza of this trip at Di Matteo and - whilst that one was a brilliant intro - this was dissapointing, 3/10.
They DID however do incredible fried pasta and arancini rosso (bolognese) which, WERE I NOT SOLELY REVIEWING PIZZA, would get 9/10.
Sorry Naples! #pizza #pizzareview #naples #friedpizza #dinner #holiday #italy #streetfood #arancinifordays
