Or use Shallot Onion Pizzeria. I think the world only Italian people can talk about food during lunch, or watch these cooking shows on television we are killing in any channel. Sometimes it happens that the guest on TV is some valid Chef, but in most cases the person being invited to prepare the dish of the day is some pseudo Chef with an equally poor cultural knowledge to pass on to its listeners. E’ precisely the case today, at lunch, sitting in front of a fantastic dish vinci Grassi prepared by Mrs. Paola, we had to put up with a guy who was wearing a jacket that Chef, the question of the well-known presenter of the television program failed to give a clear answer on what the difference was between the common onion and shallot. It is now clear that the word is used in the kitchen shallot by many chefs to look cool and cultured, out of turn, Also used in the sauce where we should onion.
Or use Shallot Onion Pizzeria
I live in the countryside, then vegetables and vegetables are for the inhabitants of this region, daily bread. I repeated the same question to diners seated at the table with me at that time, and I got different answers. Come to order: The baby to 13 years has been associated with the word “shallot” to another, thus responding: The shallot is a “loser, one that brings bad luck, Then he added: the 17 is an unlucky number. The result was a great general laughter, and they all wanted to have their say. The greatest of 15 age, very cute, he immediately said that was nothing more than a different kind of onion. Followed immediately intervened my mother (85 age) who by his wisdom said: I know that kind of onion, but that crap is not worth anything, think of the poor farmer who after so many months of hard work in the countryside, He was faced with a poor harvest, that is, these small onions that were worthless. All they preferred to plant the large onions, more weight means more gain.
On reflection….all had correctly answered my question.
We know that in our country everyone who takes a pan in hand is quite capable of sauté with a little extra virgin olive oil and chopped celery carrots and onions, these things are handed down from mothers, fathers and uncles even if we are not chefs, but….many of us could really tell whether it was used the shallot or onion common? You want the answer? Nobody.
Or use Shallot Onion Pizzeria
E’ only in recent years that has entered the Italian kitchens because of its particular taste that puts some dishes highlight. Its bulbs are literally identical to those of onion but of smaller size, rarely exceeds 5 cm. E’ You can find it in different colors, rosso, viola, yellow, white or gray. The most traded quality (PGI) is that of the type “Romagna”.
Onions and shallots are both perfect used as bases for pasta dishes, seconds or raw on salads, the only thing that differentiates them is that the shallot has a slightly milder flavor and at the same time with a little more aromatic aftertaste garlic.
The taste of onion as that of garlic remains persistent in the mouth, while the shallot weigh down a lesser extent our breath.
And what is best pizzeria in use?
To give you a better answer than that of the pseudo chef intervened in that television program, I will only suggest good advice:
Use the onion when preparing a pizza strong taste!!
If your pizza has the delicate ingredients, definitely opt for the shallot, your pizza will be equally tasty, but you will not risk to leave your guests with a breath of onion. I remind you that the same goal can be achieved using the delicious red onions on your pizza, see this post.

Pizza All’Oppio. It's a few months ago the amazing news of a Chinese restaurateur who to fight the crisis has started serving opium poppies shredded spaghetti with a sauce. It seemed to work well for the brilliant restaurateur who saw his clients out from your local, satisfied we will, and with a smile, until one of his clients was stopped at a place of drug block, and arrested for drug use.
Now, a good pizza from the twisted mind (like mine) he immediately thought of as able to apply the same principle to our beloved pizza!!What you would not do to see your local full of customers every night!
Without risking being arrested, a natural way there would:
According to the EFSA which is the European Food Safety Authority (Link at bottom of page), poppy seeds, widely used in bakery, in bakery and pizzeria, contain opium.
Always the EFSA states that the use of poppy seeds as an ingredient in food preparation (so even pizzas) It can determine an ingestion of significant doses of morphine, in a special way on a segment of the population such as children from 3 a 10 age.
The poppy seeds that are derived from Papaver somniferum L., It is already widely used in cooking in many European countries, including our Italy, with them are preparing lots of desserts and bakery products, on cakes and in many dishes in the kitchen as an ingredient, in addition to being used for the production of edible oil.
Although the seeds do not contain alkaloids, they may be contaminated when the plants themselves suffer attacks of pests, or during the delicate phase of the collection. The ingestion of these contaminated seeds can cause adverse effects related to morphine content, with the consequent possibility of measuring high levels of this alkaloid in the urine and blood, sufficient to interfere with the modern drug tests.
The European Commission, always through the EFSA it has initiated an audit on the possible risks to human health that can be given from the poppy seed consumption.
The main alkaloid content from contaminated seeds is morphine, followed by codeine, tebaina, noscapina e papaverina. The ingestion of these substances cause adverse effects which affect the central and peripheral nervous system, causing sedation, drowsiness and breathing difficulties. Papaverine instead, It acts as a muscle relaxant.
Anyhow, the content of alkaloids in poppy seeds can be drastically cut down to 90% simply by treating the seeds. Put simply, once cooked, they lose all of their property that stoned.
So dear friends pizzaioli, if you want happy customers, They leave your room with a smile, and …they return to find other pizzas with poppy seeds… 🙂 dovete aggiungerli crudi sulla pizza.
The risk of becoming drug addicts eating pizza on pizza in exaggerated quantity is very unlikely, but for sure it will give a positive result for opiates during any drug tests. Similar cases have already occurred, not only in China, Also in Italy.
