The Best Pizzerias in the World
i Tigli – San Bonifacio, Italy
Just outside Verona, in the northern part of Italy, is the town of San Bonifacio, where inventive chef Simone Padoan is putting his own spin on pizza at i Tigli. His goal is to mess with your idea of pizza and use this often-casual form to create gourmet dishes.
He frequently uses unique ingredients that would be more familiar on the menu of a Japanese restaurant. Raw red shrimp, seabass, and wasabi mayonnaise are just a few of the toppings adorning his pizzas right now. He makes all the doughs by hand, but he’s also comfortable messing with tradition, and uses a base of corn focaccia for some of his pizzas.
