The opinion of the experts of the Gambero Rosso guide: the 2022 edition is out
The day of the presentation of the 2022 edition of the Gambero Rosso guide dedicated to the best pizzerias in Italy is approaching. New entries, confirmations and improvements will be illustrated in an ad hoc event organized at the congress center of the Mostra d’Oltremare in Naples , the international capital of pizza. It will be a live return after the stop imposed by the pandemic.
According to what was anticipated by the leaders of the guide, who rewards the best venues with the “three segments” , there are over 70 new entrances that balance the exit of some shops, forced to close due to the difficulties encountered due to the coronavirus and the limitations on opening. The forced stop, always let Gambero Rosso know, is served to pizza makers to experiment and create new recipes: the doughs have been improved and diversified, numerous proprietary gardens have been created to grow vegetables and aromatic herbs with which to fill the pizzas, enrich the wine and dessert lists.
The best five Lombard pizzerias
These, according to the judgment of the Gambero Rosso “tasters”, are the five places where you can taste the best pizza in Lombardy.
I am Crosta , in via Felice Bellotti in Milan, bakery and pizzeria opened in 2018, one of the pioneers in the use of mother yeast and stone ground wheat. Then there is the Enosteria Lipen in Triuggio , in the province of Monza and Brianza, which on the Facebook page presents itself as a place specializing in “true Neapolitan pizza and Roman altarpiece”. Again, the branch in l’Albereta di Erbusco , in the province of Brescia, which on the website says it focuses on “light mixtures and unusual combinations” accompanied by Franciacorta wines and cocktails. Montegrigna-Tric Trac di Legnano is confirmed in the list, in the Alto Milanese area, among the first places to experiment with doughs (corn, Korasan, integral Tramonti, among others). And it is still in the province of Brescia, in Bagnolo Mella , the fifth restaurant awarded by Gambero Rosso. We are talking about Sirani , another place at the top of the pizza making art for years, known for its imaginative fillings such as, for example, the Catalana with fried tomatoes and Roman tanned pecorino and bacon.
