Once up at the front the man behind the counter will point his knife at a pizza and you can indicate whether you want more or less. There area a variety of pizzas on display behind the glass, but if you are a first time visitor you simply should start with the pizza bianca. This is a flat dough brushed with luscious olive oil and sprinkled with salt. That’s it and you will love it.You’ll get a receipt which you’ll take over to the cashier and off you go with pizza in hand. Be sure to look into the window directly to the right of the bakery door where you’ll see the pizza maker in action sliding these enormous pizzas into the oven. Maybe you should linger by the fountain outside while you enjoy your slice because you just might want to go back inside to try another one!
