Hello to all, pizza lovers and culinary experimenters! Today I want to share with you a delicious and inspiring story about my passion for pizzas’ unusual and adventurous. I've always loved savoring new flavors and bold combinations, so when I was offered the opportunity to participate in pizza courses in the renowned pizza school of Silvio Cicchi, I could not resist!
I was really excited about exploring new culinary horizons and bringing together unusual ingredients to create amazing tastes. The pizza shop, where the courses were held, it was a welcoming and familiar environment, and Silvio Cicchi was a master pizza maker with an infectious passion for the art of pizza.
Just arrived at pizza school, I immediately enrolled in pizza maker courses and began to learn the secrets of preparing a perfect pizza base. Silvio taught us how to handle pasta, to let it rise lovingly and to spread it evenly. Yes, preparing the base is an art, but what was to come would exceed my expectations!
After learning the basic techniques, it was time to explore the world of unusual ingredients. Silvio's pizzeria was like a culinary laboratory, with shelves filled with eclectic ingredients from around the world. We started with a selection of different cheeses, like creamy burrata and spicy gorgonzola, combined with tasty artisan cured meats. The classic combinations already made my mouth water, but I knew the best was yet to come.
One of the most amazing pizzas we created was the “Pizza Mediterranean”. The base was covered with a generous amount of lemon hummus, dried tomatoes, olive kalamata, crumbled feta and a drizzle of olive oil. The result was an explosion of Mediterranean flavors that blended perfectly with the crunchiness of the base.
But we didn't stop there! Silvio challenged us to think outside the Italian tradition and we embraced ingredients from different culinary cultures. One of my favorite combinations was the “Pizza Tex-Mex”. The base was covered in a homemade barbecue sauce, melted cheddar cheese, spiced chicken, roasted peppers and thin red onions. After cooking, we added a generous amount of fresh guacamole and sour cream. The pizza was an irresistible marriage of Italian and Mexican flavors.
Another extraordinary creation was the “Spicy Indian Pizza”. Based on tomato, we added paneer cheese, hot peppers, curry of vegetables and a sprinkle of garam masala. For a finishing touch, we garnished with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lemon. The result was a spice feast that made the taste buds dance.
The course of pizza maker at the school of Silvio Cicchi it allowed me to discover how creative and amazing cooking can be, even with a traditional dish like pizza. I learned how to expertly combine unusual ingredients to create memorable dining experiences for me and my guests.
After facing these extraordinary culinary experiments, I discovered a new passion and talent for creating unique pizzas. I have returned several times to Silvio's pizzeria to experiment with new ideas and share my passion with other pizza enthusiasts.
