Pizza Sicilia


My favorite pizza is Tokyo’s thinnest and smallest Sicilian rectangle.

When you think of angled pizza, it is usually a large soaked square pizza. So why would any pizza be anything but round? The Sfincione is a common rectangular variety of pizza. Originating in the province of Palermo, it is unlike the Neapolitan pizza, in shape and size. The Sicilian pizza is typically rectangular, sauce sometimes on top of the toppings to prevent it from soaking.

The pizza pictured above is an adaptation of Sicilian pizza mixed with the idea that a pizza should be easy to eat by hand. The finesse of Japanese, a wonderful midnight snack, this is a spicy wafer pizza that heats up with a tangy hot pepper baked into the cheese. This square pizza has a history of fifty years service in Tokyo at two locations.
