220. LA GRAVINA – La Gravina (9€)

Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart white Pizza Clipart white

  • DESCRIPTION: Ricotta-stuffed crust, arugula, cherry tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Via Giovanni Pezzotti 46, 20141 Milano (MI)
  • RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Official Website
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Dough: 7/10
This place is clearly a restaurant that makes typical dishes from Puglia since Gravina is the name of an Apulian city; however, their pizza is Neapolitan pizza (or at least it’s what they write on their menu!).
The dough is indeed thin in the middle, while puffier on the outside.
The crust is very soft but a bit chewy/undercooked here and there :/

2) Toppings: 8/10

The amount of arugula on this pizza is definitely too much and the buffalo mozzarella is not the tastiest I’ve eaten.
Besides these two points, the ingredients were delicious and their amount just perfect.

3) Value: 9/10
The prices in this pizzeria are fair: a simple Margherita is only 5.30 € and this is a rare thing in Milano!
I paid 9€ for this pizza and I think it’s worth it.

4) Service: 8/10
We went to this pizzeria on Sunday night so it was pretty busy.
However, we sit immediately and our pizzas were ready in a couple minutes: the service was quick and careful.
One only flaw: 5 minutes after dining they were very clear about letting us know that it was time to leave the place 😦

5) Side Effects: 8/10
After eating this pizza I was a bit thirsty all night long probably because it was very rich but it wasn’t very annoying!

  • OVERALL RATING:  8/10

219. The best frozen margherita on the market!

  • BRAND WEBSITE: Official Website
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Baking and Appearance: 10/10
This is the first frozen pizza that actually looks and tastes like a restaurant pizza! Yay!
By the way, you can actually choose the one that you like more since the packaging is made with clear plastic.
The baking instructions are correct but remember that if you use the fan mode it will take fewer minutes to cook!

2) Dough: 9/10
This pizza is clearly Neapolitan: thin in the middle, puffier and well leavened on the borders.
The one that I chose was a bit thinner than usual and also a bit burned here and there but I think that this kind of imperfections is very common also in the best pizzerias in Napoli.

3) Toppings: 10/10
This is a super classic pizza and the ingredients are perfect: real mozzarella, very tasty tomato sauce, parmesan cheese, 2 leaves of basil and just a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
The quantity of the ingredients is fair and their quality is clearly high.

2018-06-20 19.50.12

3) Value: 9/10
This pizza costs 3,99€.
It’s a lot for a frozen pizza but the quality is high so I think it’s fair.

5) Side Effects: 10/10
I didn’t experience any side effect 🙂

  • OVERALL RATING:  9.6/10 (the best frozen margherita I’ve ever eaten!)

  • Would I Buy It Again? No.

When I ate RAISIN BRAN Cereal a few years ago I was very disappointed by the amount of sugar that they put on top of the raisins and flakes; this version of the same cereal is instead a little better.
Here we have the same big raisins and flakes, plus some oat clusters: the mixture is still very sugary but the flakes and the clusters are glazed so you cannot actually see and taste every single grain of sugar!
This is a fake healthy cereal so if you like raisins you would love this cereal too 🙂
3 stars!

218. Roman-style pizza in Milano!

218. AI BALESTRARI – Amatriciana + Verdura (11€)

 

 

 

 

Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart white Pizza Clipart white

  • DESCRIPTION: Amatriciana (Tomato sauce, mozzarella, pecorino cheese, guanciale) + Verdura (Mozzarella, zucchini, eggplants, bell peppers)
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Via Cardinale Ascanio Sforza, 13, 20136 Milano
  • RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Official Website
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Dough: 9/10
This pizzeria follows the Roman pizza tradition so the dough is extra thin both in the middle and on the border and the crust is very crispy!
It’s very light and it’s evenly baked in their brick oven.
If you enjoy this kind of pizza I think it’s done the right way here!

2018-06-13 20.43.16

2) Toppings: 5/10
The toppings of the veggie pizza were very disappointing: raw zucchini, bell peppers and eggplants were crunchy and tasteless :/
The amatriciana was very tasty instead: pecorino and guanciale were savory but not too salty and they clearly make a good mix of toppings!
However, the amount of meat compared to the amount of veggies on the other pizza, was not sufficient at all!

 

 

3) Value: 8/10
We paid 11€ each for the whole dinner (appetizer, pizza, dessert, small beer, water and coffee) because we used a Groupon coupon; without this deal we would have paid 8€ for the veggie pizza and maybe 10 € for the other one (I don’t really know its price because it was a off-the-menu dish).
In any case, I think the prices are not completely fair (the simple margherita costs 7€ :/) but affordable.

2018-06-13 20.03.49

4) Service: 9/10
The service was quick, the waiters were very professional and not too oppressive.
The atmosphere of this place is also very cozy and enjoyable: it looks like a typical restaurant in Rome 🙂

5) Side Effects: 8/10
I felt a bit thirsty probably because of the salty appetizer and the very sweet dessert but the pizza dough was pretty light so I didn’t experience any bloating 🙂

  • OVERALL RATING:  7.8/10 (Roman-style pizza in Milano!)
  • DESSERT SUGGESTION: Nutella folded pizza!
