La Scarpetta, Pepe in Grani, Caiazzo (Ce)




Scarpetta...the word alone makes one's taste buds jump for joy.  Scarpetta, little shoe, is an act of love at the end of a meal. A show of respect and admiration performedw ith a piece of great bread and the remnants of a fantastic sauce left on the plate at the end a a course.




That is the spirit behind Franco Pepe's latest pizza - La Scarpetta. 
Pepe's soft pizza dough paired with an amazing ragu tomato sauce.  For the sauce, Pepe chose three tomato varieties and slow cooked them so that they fused together to make an incredible tomato sauce.


This sauce is not cooked in the oven with the pizza dough, but added on top afterwards.  Then a couple of shavings of Grana Padano cheese (aged 12 and 24 months)



Just one more taste of happiness courtesy of Pepe in Grani...
