I fell down the rabbit hole last night. While innocently searching worlds best bakeries on google, I happened upon Pizzarium, Gabriele Bonci’s Roman pizzeria. To see this man make pizza on the Italian cooking show La Prova Del Cuoco (video above), is a joy to behold. Barrel chested and intimidating, he has a way with dough that is forceful yet light of hand. I watched him make pizzas and focaccia for hours. What a nerd.
Check out this article in The Atlantic for some background on this guy. He’s my new hero.
