Rosso Pomodoro – Great & cheap margherita pizza

Rosso Pomodoro is a chain from Campania, surely the best region for eating pizza in Italy, since it was here – in Naples to be precise – that the pizza was invented, in honor of the queen Margherita.

The pizza napoletana is round with high boarders (crispy outside and soft inside) and a flat and soft inside. The traditional recipe is with tomato sauce, mozzarella, basil and olive oil, nothing else. Since it is so simple, it is easy to understand whether the cook is good and the ingredients are fresh and healthy. In conclusion, the rule is: if the pizza margherita is good, than you can be sure of the quality of the restaurant.

Rosso Pomodoro has got an excellent margherita (here it is called San Marzano) which is extremely cheap: only €8.5, a bargain in Milan. However the menu lists a lot of appetizers, first dishes and cakes that are quite inviting, but will end up making your bill much more expensive without adding quality to it.

Since the pizza napoletana requires a long rising and a very quick cooking, waiting time after ordering is really short.
