Great Pizza In Milan (Plus That Really Big Duomo)
Isn’t Pizza religion any way?

I always had a special place in my stomach for pizza and in my mind for really, really big cathedrals. So I explored both on my recent trip to Milan.

Being a vegetarian for over two years pizza has become indigenous to my meal plan. During my recent trip to Italy I naturally tried a bunch of great pizza in Milan, but nothing worth having to wear my stretchy joggers over. That all changed after my first experience at Lievità.
I went in just expecting another delicious pizza and left with an uneasy feeling of knowing my favorite pizza place was now on a different continent. The place has a contemporary, yet homey atmosphere with an extremely friendly team of owners and employees.
The chef, along with the ingredients are a direct import from Naples. I started with the Montanara as an appetizer, pizza dough that is fried then baked with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, fresh tomato sauce and basil. In one word, orgasmic. Then I tried the San Marzano margherita pizza and the Brontese pizza, which is made with a pistachio pesto sauce. In two words, God sent.
And because pizza is religion, here are some pictures of the Catherdral in Milan.
