Spicy Pizza Done the Right Way
The thing about spicy pizza is, it's tough to do the right way while maintaining the authenticity of a Neapolitan pizza.
Sure, Spicy Food Guy is known to slather hot sauce on the standard delivery pizza, or order a pizza with hot peppers from the local pizza joint, but the effort rings hollow. It's bringing the heat without adding any value, if you get Spicy Food Guy's meaning.
Enter a cool little neighborhood haunt in the South Hills of Pittsburgh called Il Pizzaiolo. Known for authentic Neapolitan pizzas. The oven was purchased in Naples. The cheese is imported. The owner spent quality time in Italy. All that stuff.
And they serve the Diavola. According to the menu, it's a pizza dusted with chili powder and topped with a spicy pepperoni sausage. To Spicy Food Guy, it's heaven. Beautiful Spouse of Spicy Food Guy (BSOSFG) gets her Italian fix and Spicy Food Guy gets an authentic spicy pizza.
Everyone goes home happy and full. A great restaurant experience, so says Spicy Food Guy.
