Inspiration:
Who is more fun – the Brazilians or the Italians? BOTH!

Having lived in Brazil for more than 20 years it is a tough call! But luckily Brazil has the largest number of Italian immigrants outside of Italy, so Brazil gets the best pizza plus the awesome Brazilian culture!

This pizza brings them both together – with the flavors of the Brazilian “biquinho sweet drop” peppers often found at steak houses in Brazil with the Brazilian way of cutting pizza into little squares so you can eat it at the bar! The ULTIMATE BAR FOOD! With some rosemary, olive oil, garlic and Mozzarella cheese we have the Italians covered too!

This is the pizza that brings me back to my time in Brazil, but that my Italian friends would certainly love as well! Viva Brasil e Viva Italia!
