Tastes differ: I, for example, quite like the taste of a good pecorino romano or toscano or sardo in food, although less so on its own. In certain dishes we, by preference, use pecorino, or we use half and half when we don't want the dish either too sweet or too pungent.

So far as I know, spaghetti carbonara was traditionally made with pecorino romano.

As to which tastes better? Opinions vehemently differ!

 
The best pizza in the USA is in NYC.
Top notch really, but a very unhealthy food item, if not eaten in moderation.
I seldom eat pizza in moderation, so now I abstain altogether.
An interesting factoid is that the best pizza chefs here in NYC are mostly Hispanic.
 
Or the OG of them all the Margherita with a hint of basil!!! Have that with a Peroni!!!!

They're great cooks, the Neapolitans, some of the best in Italy, no matter the dish. It helps that a lot of their produce grows in the rich volcanic soil around Vesuvius, and that their sea is teeming with fish compared to ours. I think that's why their cooking is sometimes less complicated than ours: the ingredients are so incredible that you have to do less to them and the dishes still sing.

Is it true that the first Pizza was invented in Napoli?

Or did Sicilians also make Pizza?

It's true, Pizza, as we know it today, was invented in Naples where it is documented at least since 1700. And in Italy it is commonly accepted that Naples is the home of Pizza.

Then perhaps similar dishes are older, but they are not like today's pizza with tomato, mozzarella and everything else.

The word "pizza" according to some documents is attested for the first time in Gaeta in the Year 997, so 1000 years ago. But it is very unlikely that it is like today's pizza. And anyway Gaeta, which is today in the Lazio region, has been always historically part of the Kingdom of Naples, and was in the region of Campania until 1927. In any case it is part of the history of Naples.

pizza word comes from antique
Pizza is Italian invasion
but word comes from ancient πικτη picte
wich turns to Greek Pitta Italian Pizza Pontic Greek Pissia
gerenally it is the transform of the Picte mass to a flat surface

Around Rome (located in Lazio), pizza also means “Slap”. If you hear a Roman say: ‘... mò te do nà Pizza! ’ (now I give you a Pizza) RUN if you don’t like confrontation, unless is joking.
Around Italy Pizza can also mean: something flat, squashed, a pinch, a disaster, and up until not too long ago, in S. Puglia we used the word Pizzella to mean the Food, and the word Pizza to mean the man “thing”. I don’t remember the other local meanings of pizza, but there are more.

It's possible that the word pizza comes from the Byzantine Greek πίτα, Gaeta and Naples were under the Byzantine rule for many years. But the recipe is another thing.

Gaeta-no Γαετανος-Γαιτανος means captain
infact the flag carrier, ορ high officer,
the one who hold the Gaitania compare gaitanum

another possible explanation is also accepted

poor foreigners who would get slapped by them thanks to pizza. Oh yeah that pizza you gave me was nice even if it was a bit cold :)
 
Pizzelle: A friend of mine has the iron and makes them frequently. They're not my favorite, but they're pretty good.

Pisello, yes, but pizza? It's even the wrong ending, surely? :)

Just last summer, I was ordering a pizza and my cousin first gently elbowed me, and then blushing he whispered “pizzella”. I did it in purpose. lol. It’s silly.
Those look like Waffles. :)
Similar, but with variety of doughs, I think.
They make them for Natale, but are usually smaller, not round, with honey and fried. In dialect: Purceddhruzzi.

Here I also saw them at Pasqua.

Goodness, they were invented in the Abruzzi and a similar type wafer cookie is made in Molise and they don't know about them in Puglia?

They're everywhere here in Italian groceries. I'm surprised you haven't come across them.

Same with strufoli...Neapolitan in this case, but again, I saw them being sold everywhere in Italy, and here as well. Not my cup of tea...all that honey makes them too sweet, imo.

Not my cup of tea

That's the most British thing you have said Angela. I guess you got some British friends then

That struffoli looks yummy :)
 
Just Regional differences. Of course we know what they are, but in my area we don’t usually make at home the one that look like Waffles.

ps ... Angela, on your previous post there is a graphic error or something that I can’t view.
