ROME (AP) If you like your pizza as it is, you’ll love the latest in Italian-style pizza toppings from Milanos Pizza.
The pizzeria in the heart of Rome opened in November and it’s the first in Italy to offer pizza that’s made with organic ingredients, no antibiotics and with the most toppings possible.
The toppings range from mozzarella to parmesan, as well as fresh herbs, garlic and a touch of chili powder.
The pizza is also gluten-free and vegan.
The Italian brand’s pizzas are typically topped with tomatoes and garlic, and the company is making an exception for the pizza made with mushrooms, which is also made with ingredients sourced locally.
Milanos has won rave reviews from Italian-Americans and is the only pizza company in Rome that offers gluten- and dairy-free options.
The menu includes a pizza made of mozzerella, an Italian tomato sauce with mozzardoni and garlic.
The cheese is made from Parmesan, which can be made with the ingredients, or from Parmigiano-Reggiano, which has no cheese at all.
The pasta sauce is made with chicken, which Milanos says is the most common choice among Italian-American families, although the restaurant offers a gluten-based option.
Milanes offers a variety of toppings, such as a mushroom-stuffed pizza with garlic, mozzali di marzo, garlic-crusted mushrooms and a mozzaro-style pie with mushroom and basil sauce.
The company also offers a vegan pizza made from scratch with mozarella, basil and Parmigiani Reggiano.
Milanos is the latest Italian-Italian restaurant to open in Rome.
A dozen Italian-themed pizza shops have opened in the U.S., most recently in Boston, Massachusetts, and in New York City.
Italian-food lovers in the area are eager for more options in their local communities.
“I’m looking forward to trying a whole range of different pizzas,” said Lisa DiStefano, a restaurant manager from South Pasadena, California.
“This is really exciting, because we have so many choices now, and I’m sure that we’ll have some good ones to eat.”
