There are people who have a passion. Then there are those who manage to turn a passion into a job. Antonio Sacco and 'so': a man in love with the pizza, which has made it his profession but also the object of his research staff. Enough to win the "world championship"
And 'in fact held a few days ago at the World Championships at Nettuno near Rome "World Cup pizza - Pizza World Cup" organized by the European Union of restaurateurs and typical pizza

The following year he finished first in the category "calzone doc" and a few months ago had also won the title of "Pizza Chef of the Year" in the category classic pizza at Lariano.
The races are important, though, there spega, "making the races involves effort and cost: travel, hotels and at the end you will win only the title. Last year I won twenty liters of oil, better than nothing, but there are no cash prizes. "
Antonio, however, 'and' satisfied 'cause he sees so' rewarded his constant search for quality 'and the Italian tradition that the world envies us.
Next to the oven ("only a wood, and 'another world, I recommend it") makes us see his creations: the real Neapolitan calzone, for starters: "be compromised above, to vent the air, not must be a bubble. 'Cause the calzone and' inspired by the Vesuvius, so it must have the crater, and a wide edge, like a sea beach

It turns out the pizza that made him triumph: truffle oil, anduja Calabrian Spiliga by Slow Food presidium, the gorgonzola cheese dairy and beef smoked Cavalese Dop Alto Adige, a symphony: "I like to explore the local flavors - says Antonio - and seize the best.
When one eats a pizza, must ask what you're eating, the quality 'products and' important."
Needless to ask him the secret of his pasta, which is very light and almost melts in your mouth: "The dough is simple: flour, yeast, water, salt and olive oil. Someone puts his beer or milk, but it is not 'correct. secret, and if you want to 'the rising: I make it rise 60-70 hours, and' what makes the dough light and easily digestible."
In Trentino, explains Sacco, is very thin dough and biscuit. "I, however, even if they are from Calabria, I'm the real Neapolitan pizza, more 'high. The real pizza and' that, there 'nothing to do."
That Antonio is really in love with the pizza, it soon becomes clear: he speaks of each pizza as if it were a creature. The wife Raffaella, aloof, tells the backstory: Some ingredients, such as chili, coming from his country. Scigliano in the province of Cosenza, cultivated by Antonio's dad. So 'such as olive oil, fragrant and genuine "made with olives family." A Warranty.
